Villa Wellington Restaurant Peruvian Restaurant Review: Tucked into Montreal’s working-class Verdun district, this no-frills diner features aerial shots of Machu Picchu, hand-painted tortoise shells and a rainbow of hanging toques, not to mention a smiling waitstaff decked out in Johnny Cash black. The Villa’s fare is not strictly Peruvian, so order the Mexican plate---enough for two, as are most plates---with spicy salsa and a soft burrito, or try the shingle-size slabs of mahi mahi with Caesar salad, the punchy Peruvian Cabernet, or wash down your bread basket ciabatta with a slug of Inca Cola. The huge bowls of seafood soup, parihuela, are a crowd favorite. Locals and Peruvian ex-pats fill the Villa by eight or so on weekends, so you might consider calling ahead. And not to worry, the affable staff will help you navigate the Spanish-French menu.
