We were staying in a hotel near El Pez Amigo, and our concierge recommended that we give it a try. So glad that we did! The menu is in Spanish, and we had a little trouble reading some of it, so our waiter recommended some dishes for us. Everything was amazing! The ceviche is so delicious, the grilled octopus was...

I had a short window of time in Lima in which to explore Milaflores. Looked up the best ceviche in Milaflores and every review pointed to this one. I took a very pleasant walk from the Parque del Amor, past the mall in the face of the cliff, 15 minutes further to this restaurant. I'm so glad I did! The... More

I was invited by friends in Lima for lunch to Pez Amigo. My expectations were high based on the comments submitted via Tripadvisor as well as by Limeños in Lima. The experience was not great: food was good but not great, drinks are incredibly expensive; and the service could have and should have been better. All in all, I will... More

First of all let's start by saying the prices are about 30% higher than other ceviche restaurants in the area. Is this justified? Noooo... not when they are selling the smallest servings and the least tasty food of comparable restaurants. First alarm bells went off when the bottles of water they brought were the smallest I've ever seen. Didn't even... More

We had an excellent lunch here, with fish soup and salmon as main courses, and also beers and puddings. The food was delicious and nicely served, in very large portions too. The waiter was very helpful with translations and advice, and the cost was about £28 for an exceptional meal.

We went to El Pez Amigo based on our B&B recommendation. The food was good however given the competition in Lima I thought it to be average not great. The service was quick and attentive. For sure get the ceviche as it was the beat dish we had out of 5.

Searched "best ceviche in Lima" & got this place. I walked in & no 'funny' looks when they realized I don't speak Spanish. I felt comfortable & very welcomed. I tried the mixed seafood ceviche - 1st time having it & it was really yummy. I ordered the grilled octopus mix (can't recall the right title) & I'm NO stranger... More

We went to this restaurant for lunch as a party of 5 with one very energetic 4-year old boy. It was in a relatively quiet neighborhood of Miraflores, and inside had a somewhat rustic and casual atmosphere. There are 2 floors and we were seated upstairs in the back next to a cute balcony with lots of potted plants (there... More
