Good food, not such a nice location, i expected more from food perspective and did not find anything spectacular or out of the regular, though the octopus was really good so the ceviche

Wonderful place, very unassuming tuck in the Jesus maria neighborhood. The food is delicious, love that is traditional northern Peruvian style and not your small bites. Pricing is just right, great service! Will come back !

Loved the atmosphere, the service with gusto, the seafood, the drink...Was with a group of family and friends with different desires and every one of us was raving about it. It was the best dining experience we all had in Peru! We were careful about what we ate for two and a half weeks just so we would be sure... More

Incredible menu, great food, authentic and original dishes. The tuna carpaccio in garlic and olive oil with avocado and tomato was delicious as well as the lenguado with cebolla aceivichado and olive oil. The two brothers who are the owners/chefs can match drinks and wine perfectly with the dishes. They were very kind and spent several minutes talking with us... More

This was an incredible dining experience I shared with a business associate. I look forward to returning with my wife, friends, and family. Everything on the menu looked outstanding. The smoked tuna in garlic, olive oil with tomatoes and avocado will definitely be ordered again in the future. The lenguado in olive oil with aceivichado onions was also outstanding. The... More

Oh my god! Their food was just super great. It was about 15 minutes by taxi from hotel in Miraflores. And price is higher than Peruvian standard. But it was more than worth it. Ceviche is their specialty and yes, definitely great. We ordered 2 different ceviches. baked prawn, mixed fried seafood. Everything was crazy great. Server was young but... More

Perfect restaurant to try many of the great peruvian specialities. The theme of the restaurant is north peruvian. Great service! The dinner started with a leche the tigre on the house. :)

Excellent northern cuisine in a home style, glamorous dishes (conchas negras martini) or arroz con pato. I visited my friend Fernando on April and I tasted the tacu tacu in seafood's salsa and like eat in other word, the ceviche is plus, all the other dishes served to my family was outstanding, and to start Arturo give a "especial" drinks...

I was led there by my host. It's not in a glamorous part of Lima but the food was good. It was Peruvian and the price was good as well.

This was my second visit and it was as good as the first, maybe even better. I have been thinking about the food that I experienced at Don Fernando's some 8 months ago and had the chance to relive the experience on Sunday. My memory served me well, the food is outstanding, wine selection impeccable. The staff are friendly and... More
