I am from Peru and I can tell you that if you are looking for ceviche mixto, this is not the place to order. I order over the phone and requested ceviche mixto which cost $11. When my food arrived I was very shock to see a small (6")

It??s all about the chicken at this Peruvian restaurant with something of an identity crisis. No matter ?? the food, based around its delicious rotisserie chicken, known as ??pollo de brasa,? certainly overcomes that issue. In fact, its not really a problem: the restaurant also offers Chinese, Spanish, and Caribbean cuisine. This might seem like an odd combination, but it works. A wide variety of dishes are available to go with the chicken; I would recommend the fried ripe or green plantains, which compliment the meat in a sweet or savory manner, respectively. They also offer Peruvian, Dominican and other regional beers, an ideal addition to cool you down with any such meal serving hot Latin fare. In addition, the portions are enormous, easily feeding two hungry diners, or yourself for two days. Nearly everything on the menu, especially the specials, like the chicken served in a pot with Peruvian green rice, are very affordable. Best of all, here you can impress your friends ?? or a date ?? with your trilingual abilities by speaking to the staff in Chinese, Spanish, and English. Buen Provecho/Enjoy!

Pros: Cheap - and tasty

Need a roast chicken with delicious sides super-cheap and super-fast? Flor de Mayo is your place! We used to take out from here all the time when we lived in this neighborhood. Wish there was something just as good in Park Slope!

Pros: Example: best croissants in town

Cons: What are the drawbacks?

I am amazed that some people would write bad reviews about this place. First of all this is not fine dining but is a neighborhood spot that does a hell of a job when it comes to cooking great. The service is just as good as any other place. The peruvian dishes are delicious and price accordingly. Being in the food business myself, I can confirm that the prices are cheap and that the cooks do a superb job at their skill level. Of course everything is not done the tradiotional way as one person commented for example the paella and the broiled shrimps were not good along with the service. We must rememver that everyone has their own personal touch in any dish they create. If you want repetition well just walk in to Mcdonalds where food is always the same and if you want fine service then go to Per Se.

We need more places like this one were we can count on the cooks putting the right amount of salt and seasoning on the food or just cooking the rice correctly. I am happy with this place and I am a loyal customer. If you want decent food at a decent price then this is your place!

i love Flor de Mayo! i have recommended this spot to many friends i know. I am peruvian so i am familiar with their dishes & i have to say the "lomo saltado" is by far the best, you just have to try it. don't forget the sangria. everyone i have sent there have nothing but great things to say about it. it's very crowded so expect to wait but it's completely worth it. the service is quick and the pricing is very reasonable for the amount of food you get. definitely yummy food. enjoy =]

I went to this place last night not knowing what to expect. What we got, was seriously delicious food. This is not a romantic spot, or the place to go when you need to impress... There is no ambience or decor to speak of, but the tastiness is overflowing. We ordered the lomo saltado, the pork chops and some sweet plaintains to share. All of it was delicious, but the lomo saltado was outstanding, by far the best I have ever had. Go hungry.

It's not fine dining but it's quality food. And it's better than the Peruvian place in the E. Village, hands down. Food is delicious and excellent drinks to boot. This place is open late and has a following, so either make reservations or show up after everyone else does (which is what i always do). I have been here dozens of times and there's so much on the menu to choose from -- grilled fish was good, papas a la ariquepena, pesto pasta, lomo saltado is awesome, nothing has disappointed me or the many friends i've brought here (other than the wait for the couple of times we didn't call ahead). Around $10/plate so not expensive at all and you always have leftovers. I've been to their midtown location and I think this one is better.

I went to the restaurant for a birthday dinner and I can't complain. The menu offers a wide variey of foods. I tried the muscles for an appetizer and it was great but I do have one complain; there was a bit too much lime juice. I also had the roasted chicken and it was NOT dry at all; very juicy. Overall the food was excellent. Big portions and it hits the spot.

A close friend took me to this restaurant and I have to admit that I didn't know what to expect. Once there, the sitting was quick and it was packed!! Food was amazing, I'd go there again for sure ;-)

So my beloved friend took me here one night. I had no idea what to expect. I've never been to a Spanish/Chinese restaurant before and I must say, the food here is awesome. It's absolutely delicious. The sangria is really good too. It's usually crowded here but the wait is worth it. The green noodle is good and the avocado salad is good. And best of all, it's affordable. Definitely recommend this place to anyone who hasn't tried Spanish/Chinese cuisine.

I never hesitate to come to this place. It is a small place and it is always packed. The wait at times can be a little bit fustrating, but totally worth it.
It is a clean place and everyone is polite. If you never been here, come and give it a try.
By the way, did I mention that the prices are very reasonable.

I'm stunned at the wonderful reviews this place is getting...totally opposite of my experience! First of all, I found the place to be kind of "divey" from the outside and it also looked very "hole in the wall" when I went in. But, since the place was recommended, I stayed. The menu was dirty and greasy and when I ordered a pina colada, it came WITHOUT booze. Not just light on the booze, I'm talking NO BOOZE. When I complained and asked for some booze to be put in my drink, they returned it the same way. I wasn't about to argue more. My friend had dirty utensils, which reflects the way the place looked in general. The food was so-so. There wasn't much on the menu that appealed to me to begin with, and I ended up getting a spinach/pasta dish that was average AT BEST. Certainly nothing special. I think the thing that turned me off most was just the upkeep up the place; it looked dirty! Even if a place has great food, I can't get past the fact if it looks filthy. I was happy to get out of that place, I consider it a waste of my time completely!! BEWARE!

I bring everyone to this restaurant. My fiance and I were both recommended by a friend, and both warned about a long wait. Yes, that happens, but it's well worth it. The food is EXCELLENT. The wait staff are sometimes not 100%, but when you are working non-stop like they are, you just maybe can't operate at 100%. The prices are low for huge portions, and the food always comes quickly. Personally, I love the Peruvian food - broiled shrimp, spaghetti pesto, green rice (it's cilantro), half chicken, and lomo saltado are ALL consistently good. And yes, beware of the Nutcracker cocktail. YUM.

this place is so yummy!! Sometimes the wait is long but it's totally worth it. Their pina coladas are excellent! Their mango milk shake is really good too. But the thing you have to eat while here is their half chicken or whole with their special fried rice! it also comes with some salad and it is the ultimate dish! I'm going there tonight, matter of fact.

My husband and I recently went to this restaurant and we would not recommended at all. We waited almost an hours for a table after being told waiting time was 20 minutes. The waiter did not understand want we wanted. We had to point to the menu like we were children. Once the food arrived the taste was not very good compare to the other places we have been to. I ordered broiled shrimps and my husband ordered paella.
