Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Costanera is hands-down the best Peruvian restaurant in Tampa! The service is always timely and friendly. Food portions are very generous and good for sharing; I highly recommend trying the medium spicy fish ceviche and the lomo saltado or jalea. I really like the Peruvian...sangria too; it’s so refreshing. Also, we have celebrated many birthday parties and holidays here over the years, and I just love that they have live music on Fridays and Saturdays too. 5 star experience from start to finish!More

I came back to this restaurant to see if they improved in service and cooking; NOT, they did not. Yesterday I went with friends and La huancaina was so watery ( Peruvian people knows it should not be like that); Arroz con mariscos; we had...to returned it because rice was not cooked right; some not cooked and some like too much. Tasted like a lot of paprika or a red seasoning but nothing like Arroz con Mariscos. Waiter was really nice about it ( I am not sure about this anymore) and she offered to bring instead Arroz Chaufa. My friend decided to take it home at this point and later that day when she was about to eat A BIG BLACK HAIR in the food...Sooo discustin. Sorry but I am not going back again. I guess they did not like that we complain about the foodMore

After reviews on their facebook page. I received an agresivectesponsevfrom the owners because the arrow con mariscos tasted like costco seafood package and the sangria tasted sour. This started the fire on my facebook notification. So sad for lack of professionalism. Never happen something similar...in my life after many bad and regular and excellent reviews . They took everything personal. Unacceptable.More

We stopped by to try this Peruvian Restaurant as we were in the area. We were the only ones on a Sunday lunchtime, a little over an hour after opening. We ordered drinks and appetizers and main courses to go. The ceviche was good, according...to my husband although was not served wit the traditional choclo. My Tri Causa was average. The presentation of three small causas was very good, however the flavour lacked the tanginess of lime and aji amarillo, that I am used to. Also, it was not layered and the “filling” was served on the side, the portion for which was inadequate for the potato ball and therefore rather dry. We ordered lomo saltado to go, and that took close to 45 minutes to come out, which was far too long IMO. The fries, were obviously oven fries, which were skinny and just not what should be served with lomo saltado. The flavour again was average. The service was slow and were were not asked if we would like a second drink. Again, we were the only ones when we arrived and placed our order so no excuse for the poor/slow service. The decor was grungy.More

The food was exquisite. The decor needs updating. It is kind of drab. I also wish that they would actually play some Peruvian music for added atmosphere.

We just returned from Peru and were disappointed with the food here. The causa was good and the chica morada was also good. But the Lomo Saltado was a disappointment. Very little flavor and the meat was small and tough. Service was ok. Music was...a little too loud.More

We decided to go there for dinner on a Friday night, after a long time of wanting to try it out. I was expecting a little bit better. I love Peruvian cuisine, it's usually full of flavor. Papas a la huancaina was an OK dish,...it was good. My arroz con cilantro was salty as well as my husband's arroz con mariscos. It is a little bit pricey for the quality of food that you get. They do serve a lot and we both took leftovers. I was also disappointed to find that they didn't have suspiro limeño en in the dessert menu. The live music was incredible, so I give them points for that.More

Excellent place! The food was delicious. I drank a fresh limeade that was very refreshing and ate the fresh red snapper with white rice and yuca and mojo. We had an appetizer and I had no room for dessert but I can't get wait to...go back and try more Peruvian dishes, especially the ceviche. I love the decor too, it has beautiful, colorful paintings. I learned that they have live music on the weekends but they didn't when we were there. Overall, great experience.More
