Located across the street from a beautiful cliff next to the sea. Great view. The food is delicious, creative and plentiful. I recommend the chicha morada drink. I tried a half a dozen different aperitifs and each was actually sensational. The salmon over mushroom risotto was simply delicious.

Worth a visit for lunch. Great service, exceptional food, large portions. Ceviche, risotto with shrimp, bottle of Chilean wine. Perfect after a long walk in Miraflores area.

The quality and presentation of each dish never stops amazing me. It is pricy, but well worth it. Recommend the "tiradito" (white) which is an original.

Trio Cecviche will let you taste 3 different types of amazing flavor combinations. Flounder in cognac sauce is a must. Is not frequented by tourists as the weight is very long and if you dont make reservations is not that easy to get a table. A must go while in Lima.

This is the typical restaurant with beautiful dishes, fancy description, but not well executed. The tiradido was too salty, my fish was cold and the zapallo tortelone where over done, my friend's fish was over cooked, and the other friend's Tuna was underdone (he asked 3/4 and get 1/4...) The restroom is too close to the kitchen. At least is... More

I came here while visiting Peru and reluctant to hear there was better seafood I still went. I loved it! The service was great. We were offered soup complimentary. Also, since the daily soup had crab (I am allergic) the chef made me a fish soup. I didn't even have to ask. The ceviche with conchas negras was my favorite.... More

I would go again. I have been here with friends on various occasions for lunch. It is good and my Peruvian friends like it. There are other places to dine that are higher on my list. But the food here is good and the location is quite nice. The service is always good.

The restaurant is only open for lunch 12pm-5pm. I had a delicous lunch and the service was outstanding. A bit pricy but worth it.
