Our Story

The restaurant was named in honor of Barranco, one of the most beautiful districts of Lima, the capital of Peru, recognized as the center of nightlife with its excellent restaurants and numerous bars.

The three business partners behind the project are from Peru and have been working in the Montreal restaurant and nightlife industry for many years. Fidel M. Vasquez (India Rosa, Liquid Chefs), Renatto Miranda, recognized Montreal promoter (RC familia) and Josué Briones Corcuera (Les deux fours, Pio Pio Mtl) are jointly embarking on this project which will revive the open Pio Pio Mtl restaurant in the spring of 2020 before the pandemic with a whole new face that is more modern and urban.

“As far back as I can remember, I’ve always wanted to open a Peruvian restaurant in Montreal. I met Renatto Miranda with whom I took over the administration of the Lobby Bar 3 years ago and since then the idea has never left us. With Josué Briones on board, we had the winning formula to open the Barranco and introduce Montrealers to our culture” says Fidel M. Vasquez.

In the 1863 square foot room with 56 seats, the atmosphere is warm and inviting. The large red brick wall will be transformed by artist Anthony Pecoraro (Teetz) whose art combines painting, photography and collage and a huge colorful mural depicting Peruvian culture will be made by two Montreal artists (@lna.mart and @bernard.lhermitee). Of course, Latin music will complete the atmosphere.
