Went back this time I was in Lima for a few days....Still fantastic...I had one of the ceviche mixto selections and also ordered an entree of a baked fish and potatoes, but the ceviche serving was so large I ended up taking the entree to go and having it later for dinner. Do take the advice of your waiter about... More

We came here on our very last day in Peru, thinking we could get one last nice meal before we leave. Things started out well when we got there. I showed the waiter a picture of the "seafood w/ rice" (I got the picture from a previous review posted on Tripadvisor!). When the food came out, it was fried rice... More

Quality, Price, Service and Location. I follow the Trip Advisor recommendation and not disapointed. The owner was there and we had a nice conversation. I tried three courses, all delicious and fresh. I had not more than 40 minutes to eat and they were very efficient on to serve three courses.

We had luck there today. It was awful. Staff seemed overwhelmed, not at all attentive and distracted, had to keep asking them to bring our drinks, finally we had to wait for over 20mins just to get beverages. When my glass came, it had hair on it. Sent it back. I had specifically asked for my ceviche not to have... More

We spent five days in Peru and five days in Chile. This may have been the best meal of the trip. Our taxi driver recommended it and said he had known the owner since they were both very young. It was excellent. And the owner, Luis, came over and talked with us in English and wanted to make sure we... More

Is not what I read in most of the reviews. By far the are much better restaurants in Lima than this one. The atmosphere is 3 over 10.

Great restaurant with fantastic food! We had Ceviche, Octopus, shrimps, Causa, Lenguado and a Chupe de Langostinos. It was delicious! And the price for everything was ok and the waiter was so nice and friendly! I will soon go back there!

The food was very tasty and fresh. The price was reasonable and there is nothing negative I could mention. One of the best sea food restaurants I have visited in the world.
