Great crustaceans

This restaurant is a Miraflores classic now. Its a renowned seafood place but is especially famous for its crustaceans. Prawn cocktail and parihuela soup is a must, however any dish with crustaceans would be a safe bet. Prices are reasonable, its well located snd its very quiet. It also provide... read more

One of the better family cebicherias in Miraflores. Very clean, with quick and friendly service. The food is always fresh and the beer cold. Free wifi. I can only comment on the cebiche de pescado as that's what I get every time I'm there, one of the best in Lima!

Ate here based upon TA reviews and a recommendation of a local (hotel concierge), with phrases such as "best ceviche in Miraflores" used. I went for the mixed ceviche which included white fish, squid and prawns. Whilst it was ok, it was nothing special and lacked some chilli and flavour in general. Honestly, the best ceviche I had in Miraflores... More

We found El Pez Amigo through Tripadvisor and we didn't regret our choice. The place was packed with locals and the food was very very good. We ordered one Chupe de Camarones and one Ceviche Mixto, followed by a "Vulcano de Marisco" (green rice with seafood), accompanied by Pisco Sour. Everything was delightful and we highly recommend it! The bill... More

We decided to hoof it up to EPA from Barranco. It was an easy 30 minute or so walk and we also got to stop by the Museum of Modern Art on the way. It's a little tricky crossing the intricate highway that separates Barranco from Miraflores where EPA is located but well worth the walk on a clear (for... More

Family style relaxed atmosphere. The restaurant caters both tourists and locals. A lot of the Peruvian seafood classics are on the menu and prices are reasonable.

We ordered one ceviche de pescado as a starter to share, it arrived quickly and the taste was very good. As a main dish we both had a fish soup, big portion and good taste. For our baby we ordered a grilled fish fillet with vegetables, he enjoyed it.

At the suggestion of the concierge of the Belmond Miraflores Hotel, we enjoyed a long lunch at the nearby El Pez Amigo. Despite the menu being only in Spanish, the very friendly owner, Luis, and one of his waiters, guided us into choosing mixed cerviche for starters, and an Amazon fish cooked two ways for mains. Both included river prawns.... More

Very good seafood, mostly traditional dishes with some variations. Nicely prepared. Ceviche of Ourizo was nice, as well as the grilled octopus

this place was so good. We ended here by mistake as we stayed in a place around the corner. It was Sunday lunch time and everything we ordered was incredible. The salmon tartar and the tuna ceviche are to die for. The owner was hanging out with us and told us all about the place. He was very nice. we... More
