The best ceviche of the world.

I went to this restaurant on my first day in Lima because it was located very close to my Hotel in Miraflores. The location and the setting are not the best but the food is simply amazing.

I had read rave reviews about Punto Azul, so as soon as I got to Miraflores, I threw my bag in my room and rushed right over for a late lunch. I ordered the traditional fish cerviche and it was melt in your mouth good, washed down with a nice Cabernet Sauvignan. I tried going back the following 2 days... More

If you want to have a good time with the family, it's the place to be. The food is really good and if you go for your birthday they will give u a little party at ur table with a nice picture at the end. I really had a great time there. :D

This seafood restaurant is a Lima classic- great prices, and fresh, delicious seafood. The squid ink pasta makes the wait worth it!

This was the first place I ate at in Lima, and the bar was set pretty high. I was very impressed with the level of service, the food was great and very big portions all very reasonably priced.

We arrived there at around 3:00pm, it took about 10 minutes for the host to give us a table, so that part was good. My dish was "Ceviche Punto Azul" it was pretty good. The only thing I didn't like was that they put some banana chips on top of the ceviche, it was the first time that I see... More

We got to this restaurant pretty late. The staff were nice and welcoming. This was the first place in Lima that I tried Pisco and Peruvian Ceviche. Honestly, I was not very impressed. Maybe my I set my expectation too high. I thought the Pisco was a bit of too strong and sweet, and the Ceviche was ok. We had... More

This is one of the first restaurants that I ever went to in Lima and this gives you the real, authentic flavor of Lima's cuisine. Excellent ceviche (obviously) and arroz con mariscos. VERY popular, so plan on waiting if arriving at a popular time.

Now According to my wife this is a good place for ceviche, and that was the reason that we had come, unfortunately I do not care... More

Unless you are a foodista with precise tastes and require food artistically presented, you will not be disappointed at Punto Azul. We ate here twice, once for convenience but came back because it offers a broad seafood menu at good prices prices, with most dishes costing around 35 soles (3S/1$ US). Both the Risotto de Camarones and Ceviche were well... More
