Casual atmosphere, good food

I was walking around the area in the afternoon and passed Punto Azul. An expat I met earlier highly recommended it. The line was half-way around the block and people waiting inside. I asked the concierge at my hotel when a good time would be to go. She recommended later at night around 7. I went at... read more

Last fish experience in Lima was horrible, so I asked some friends where to go. Punto Azul was the answer. Had to wait half hour for a table but that was ok. I could see the plates going to the tables. They looked amazing!!!! The first thing we tried was the Ceviche. That is the moment when you know if... More

I'm usually skeptical of places well rated, but Punto Azul deserves all its praise. We were in a hurry and lucky to not have waited long for a table. We ordered ceviche, arroz con mariscos, and the parmesan conchs. Everything was amazing! My only regret is that we had to run to the airport and couldn't finish everything. Do not... More

OMG the ceviche is soooooo freaking good! The Ceviche Punto Azul has a sauce that is to die for, and the traditional ceviche is great as well. There are plenty of other options for those who want more traditional meals, but the focus is definitely on seafood and the ceviche is the star of the show. The portions are huge... More

This restaurant has by far the best ceviche I had in Lima. The seafood were fresh and the service were excellent. Definitely a must go if you visit the city.

Someone recommended this restaurant and I went there for dinner. I ordered a ceviche and a Peruvian main dish with fish. Next day both of us felt unwell and we think it was the main dish, but the ceviche was also below expectation. The restaurant was very busy and the quality of food was average, however for the price we... More

Seems to be a popular restaurant in the Miraflores area. The food is good in general but nothing stands out. The Pisco Sour here is pretty strong. Their ceviche is a meal all to itself.

I am a chef and own two restaurants in Boston, during my stay in Lima had a great meal at Punto Azul, Ceviche was outstanding and the Arroz con Mariscos was to die for. I went personally and told the manager, she was really busy but graciously gave me some time.

When I stop at this place I order Arroz Punto Azul, I love cilantro, they call it Culantro but it is the same thing. If I go in a group I tell everyone to order whatever they like but I do not share my arroz, it is a large serving but I do not leave a single rice in my... More
