We went there last night upon the recommendation of the concierge in our hotel. The food was very tasty. My husband had the Caesar salad with battered prawns as a starter, followed by sole. My son and I had the lobster ravioli and my other son had the beef with rice and chips. The portions were big and everything tasted... More

Family lunch on our first day in Lima, based on recommendation from the hotel concierge. We were very pleased with everything we ordered. Ceviche appetizers were great, salmon was cooked perfectly medium rare, the beef was very tasty, pisco sours were perfect, and my kids devoured their mushroom and shrimp pasta. Very satisfying lunch! Definitely worth a visit.

Although the food was very good we had the feeling that the waiter was trying to push to us the most expensive wine on the menu card by saying that the cheaper ones had finished. After we complained to the manager the wine we had originally asked for was well available. The food ws very good and I had the... More

I went to \alfresco on my first day in Lima upon recommendation of a friend which was also confirmed by the concierge at my hotel as one of the best ceviches in town. After having tried quite a few over the 10 days I spent in Lima, I confirm that indeed it's one not to be missed. The service is... More

I got a recommendation to come here and see why it's only in the 40s out of all Lima restaurants at the time of writing. There are so many good restaurants in Lima and for the price this one just isn't top notch. I went to a newer restaurant IK a few days later that was far above and beyond... More

I cannot eat gluten and the restaurant was unwilling to adapt any of their recipes by leaving out the flour that thickens sauces or by making a rice dish without soy sauce. My only choice was grilled seafood and vegetables. Tasty, but not what I was hoping to eat. This lack of accommodation is unusual in an upscale restaurant. How... More

Restauurant was recommended but I found it to be too pricey and the food to be average. There were not as many people there and service was average.

Loved the fish here! So fresh and the thyme dressing was amazing. My husband had the lobster ravioli and really enjoyed it! Nice vibe in the restaurant and great service!

It was a return trip to the restaurant after 4 years. The food was still good. It was not too salty too. Dishes were cooked and presented more refinely than other family restaurants. The nikkei-style cerviche was good and interesting change from the regular version. However, the waiter made a mistake to understand one of our orders but insisted the... More

The restaurant was independently recommended to us by 2 people. The setting is casual whilst the food and service was excellent. We were also introduced to Peruvian wine which was also excellent. We both had seafood which was cooked to perfection. This place is a definite "must do" if you are in Miraflores.
