Our story

Having relocated to Canada from Peru in 1998, the Dy Family sought opportunities at Ottawa Canada wanting for a better life for their kids. Christian and his wife Ellaiza are both home cooks and love experimenting with traditional cuisines. They were both hardworking chefs that wanted to perfect the flavors of every dish at their canteen.  Together they have successfully realized their dream of owning and operating their own restaurant. 

Opened in February 2000, the restaurant started its humble beginnings as a small restaurant. In May 2016, the restaurant closed for renovation and reopened its doors to the public in February 2018. Considered as one of the best traditional Mexican Peruvian restaurants in Ottawa, Nuvo Restaurant features delicious, luxurious, and modern ambiance in all services and facilities we offer.  

The theme Mexican – Peruvian were inspired from both of them since Ellaiza had a Peruvian touch meanwhile Christian was Mexican. They ten started making fresh ceviches little by little where she had learned from her grandmother. This is when Nuvo Restaurant started to gain popularity.
