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

Friendly neighborhood restaurant with excellent food and wonderful service . Make sure you ask for Pedro. A local haunt. The ceviche is a must . Try the Tiradito for a little local flavor .

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
