Alfresco was suggested to us by various people, so we figured we had to try it. It's a bit formal in presentation (it is in Miraflores after all), and seemed to attract an older, more professional crowd, but the service was impeccable, and the food was excellent. We had a tiradito three ways that simply cannot be missed (it beat... More

Scallops and Tuna served with excellent sauces and prepared masterfully. The vegetable sides were also superb. Great service and atmosphere. If I get back to Lima I will return.

Four hungry folks shared three entrees (Osobucco, asparagus risotto, ceviche) and it was delicious!! Pisco sours were delish too! Portions are huge, fyi. Service is very different than what we were used to in the states. Ask for what you want, flag the server down if you need something - don't wait for them to come to you. The place... More

What a find! Located in the trendy Miraflores section of Lima, it is a very stylish place to have a special dinner. Service is impeccable. We shared a delicious and ample fried seafood appetizer, then had nice rare tuna with grilled asparagus, and salmon Meunière with wonderful mushroom ravioli. Even the homemade herb rolls and compound butter were first rate!... More

My wife and I went there for dinner on our last night in Lima and we wanted something special. The food was up to our expectation. We had two entrees which were excellent and washed down with a very pleasant Peruvian red. The wait staff were very helpful and explained the menu to us in English. The only downer for... More

this restaurant came recommended by our tour guide. I wonder now if they get a commission for doing so. Overall the food that we've had in Lima has been absolutely wonderful. This meal was not bad either, but the service was awful. There was a fun atmosphere outside on the patio and it looked like people were getting prompt service... More

The food is very good, the place is not so great, but location is good, easy to walk in Miraflores after a good and heavy dinner.

We came here with a group for supper one night. A couple in the group had already been here twice. We can understand why. The restaurant is located in the Miraflores district, and was an easy and safe walk from the our hotel, the Jose Antonio Lima. The place has a nice comfortable feel, with plenty of seating for small... More

The besta ceviche I've ever had! And I live in Cancún, where you can get pretty good ones. I also had a main dish that was delicious!! Drinks are very good as well, service may improve a bit, since we had to ask for water and another drink twice to get them, but the whole meal is worth the wait.... More

We just had a lunch yesterday. The food and service is so so. But I was surprised our tour guide recommended it during our half-day city tour, our hotel front desk recommends it and we see people being dropped off from their tour mini van. Interesting, uh! After I paid our check, our waiter tried his best to point us... More
