Peruvian cuisine has gained worldwide recognition through its unique blend of Japanese, Chinese, Criollo and Andean food traditions, spiced with exotic flavors from Peru's vastly varied ecosystems, ranging from the Altiplano and the rugged Andes to the lush Amazon forest and the arid coast.
While Peruvian restaurants sprung up everywhere, The Netherlands and Amsterdam strangely enough were left out in the cold. We are happy to bring modern Peruvian gastronomy to Amsterdam, and judging by the reviews, our guests could not agree more.
sabor de la vida
NAZKA is the expression of our love for Peru, our pais natal and ancestral land. Our kitchen showcases Peruvian classics such as the ceviche and innovative interpretations of the Peruvian culinary traditions.
At the core of NAZKA lies the notion of Sabor de la Vida: The surge of joy when sharing delicious food and drinks with friends and family in a warm atmosphere. How life itself is celebrated through food latino-style...
NAZKA is home turf to a close-knit team of diverse people who are passionate about hospitality and Latin-Peruvian cooking. Their collective aim is to create the best Latin dining experience in The Netherlands and beyond.
Raul Lansink is the founder of NAZKA. Having lived most of his life in the Netherlands, Peru was nevertheless an enduring presence in Raul's childhood years through the food traditions his mother preserved. Going on family visits to Lima meant sitting at extended family dinners where his grandmother would preside over an endless array of delicious Criollo dishes. Memories may fade, but the spicy smells from his abuelita's kitchen Raul would never forget.
After a career in advertising and consultancy, Raul decided it was time to reembrace his roots and launch the first modern Peruvian restaurant in Amsterdam.
