  • Let's head up to Port Chester for some amazing Peruvian seafood (there's more than seafood on the menu) and ceviche on Thursday August 7th starting at 7pm. 

    Port Chester has become known for its many restaurants. Among the profusion of Latino restaurants, most do not offer the kind of atmosphere diners from out of town might expect. Of all these restaurants, Acuario is the one that best retains the exotic feeling of authenticity, while providing an attractive ambience, without prices that take it out of the "affordable" category. The ceviche here is the best in town. 

    Here are some comments by others, "Yesterday was our second time at Acuario and it confirmed that the first time was not an anomaly- the food and overall experience is of a consistently high quality. My wife loves the ceviche mariscos, and my Milanesa de Pollo was moist and tasty. I would highly recommend getting a side of tostones, they were excellent. My daughter always gets the tallarines verde con bistek, basically fettuccine with pesto and steak, another great dish. On our first visit I had the Pollo Encebollado and it was a very nice combination of flavors. It's a fairly busy restaurant so be prepared for some noise during peak hours, but this adds to the overall atmosphere of festivity. They have a full bar and the Peruvian beer Cusquena (which I've never seen at my local store) was very good. Highly recommended, a great family restaurant with something for everyone. While there are cheaper Peruvian options out there I haven't found one with better tasting dishes, and that's worth paying a little more for."

    Another writes, "Can I give it 10 stars?? Cause if I could I would!!!!  Seared Scallops......Cooked to utter perfection. Steak that you can cut with a butter knife. Fried Yuca which I already love, so it doesn't take much to woo me with that one. Papa Huancaina...........I can't even explain this one, but if you have never had it you're missing out on one of the wonders of the world. Lol  And the little spicy dipping sauce that they give you with the bread.  OMG  Lastly, the salad dressing. It's homemade and made me feel like I died and went to heaven. Go, go, go.  If you're still reading this you have already wasted enough time. Enjoy it.  I promise you will savor every bite!!!!!"

    And one more says, "I just went this restaurant tonight for the first time ever. There were two of us. We had the Mixto Ceviche with medium spice. It was delicious! Amazing. Freshest seafood. The large was more than enough for two and extremely filling for the two of us.  We barely had enough room for our entrees of Cau Cau and the pesto bistec. They were good, but we did not have enough room because of the ceviche. Took it to go.Service was great. We have Laura, who was attentive and pleasant.  Ambiance was okay. A little too dark for me, but my boyfriend said it was fine.  Tables were small and too close to each other. Did not have a lot of table space for food. There is no waiting area except a small entryway where people cram themselves in to stay out of the rain and wait for their table, which is what happened when we went to eat. Above all, ceviche was worth everything. I will definitely be back."

    Check out their website for more info, menu, etc: http://www.acuariorestaurant.com/

    So.. I will make a reservation for 8 - as this place gets packed... and is not very large... your $2.50 will secure your spot... 

    See you there!

    I'm sorry to have to cancel but I got very sick over the weekend-possibly food poisoning. I don't think I'll be able to handle seafood even if it isn't until Thursday.
