First take - superb ceviche and flawlessly prepared fish dishes. The ceviche is as good as you'll have outside of South America. We ordered the ceviche mixto (small) which is large enough for 2 to split as an appetizer. I ordered the Pescado a lo Macho - a fish filet covered in an assorted seafood sauce. And they have tres...

While visiting family in friends in San Juan we wanted to have dinner in the area we were visiting and wanted fish and churrasco options and rice and beans. We decided to try Ceviche House since the locals had heard good things and the reviews hear were very promising. We ended up walking over, so no need for parking. It... More

Well we finally made it here. My cousin always talked about how good this place was, but we were able to make it until now. I'm glad we did because it was fantastic! Definitely have the ceviche, it was so fresh and tasty! We also had these empanadas which were delicious as well. Comes with a pair of sauces, one... More

When I visit my daughter in Puerto Rico, it's a tradition to make this the first stop, after leaving the airport, for a late lunch at Ceviche House. Best ceviche in town.

Once again the locals came through for us and suggested ceviche house for dining. I got the grilled snapper in garlic and it is awesome. Wife got Mahi Mahi and, again, awesome. Small place with good service. Doesn't look like much from the outside, but it is worth the trip. Try it!!

The outside side of the restaurant doesn't look like much and I have to say the something about the inside, but.... they certainly know how to make a perfect ceviche. It is not to sour, it’s very fresh, tasty and you just want to have more. Unfortunately I only had the opportunity to visit it once. I would mostly recommend... More

We enjoyed the food so much, we went twice on our vacation. The portions were large, family-style and everything was delicious. Ceviche, tostones, yuca, and churrasco were great, and the whole fried snappers coming out of the kitchen looked incredible. Mostly locals eating there - You can't go wrong!

The best meal for two to share is a small mixed seafood ceviche with the 10 oz churrasco medium well, and of course "tostones" on the side. Simply delicious. For a Peruvian ceviche house to say that they serve the best tasting, best quality churrasco in town, with the best fried plantains (to stones) is perhaps hard to believe. But... More

Had a lovely evening at the restaurant. It is better inside than you think from the road. Busy atmospheric place serving from a very good menu. We went there as we were keen to eat seafood and we weren't disappointed. Excellent value for money and nice to experience the community away from hoards of tourists
