Price was reasonable, food was exquisite and service was excellent as were the Pisco Sours. Ask for bread as apparently its not brought to the table and we asked and received warm rolls at no charge which were excellent

This is the "to go" restaurant when visiting down town Miraflores, because it is very near but not in the busy section. I´ve gone there more than once, since I live sort of close to it. The food is very good, the service is particularly excellent. The waiters and the valet people have a very nice feel to them in... More

Do not be fooled by the name. Alfresco is NOT an italian restaurant. Rather it's a reassuringly conservative peruvian classic. The service is excellent, professional and attentive. The food is homely and tipically peruvian, the equivalent would be an italian restaurant where you can order "bollito". Adult and impeccably professional, Alfresco is a safe bet in Lima.

Excellent food with innovative dishes. The prices is quite European, so higher than you would normally pay in Peru.

First let me start by saying the food was good in terms of freshness, but the taste wasn't as great as I expected to be and portion sizes tend to be smaller for the price. We ordered cheviche, tiradito and grilled octopus. The cheviche was very bland no taste something clearly was missing. The tiradito had a vinegar taste with... More

We had a wonderful meal here, 2 couples all foodies, we chose the 2 sharing dishes for starters, selected our own mains and only managed 1 sharing pudding plate. The food was excellent, we also had some Peruvian wine (our first of the trip and were pleasantly surprised as to the good quality of it) The service was prompt and... More

I really enjoyed my ceviche here! The dessert (chocolate with red fruits) was disappointing. Wine was not so good, but that has nothing to do with the restaurant. Overall i recommend this place, especially if you're earning dollars/euros!

We arrived yesterday from Sao Paulo, where we had some bad luck finding a really good place to eat. We came back to tripadvisor and gave this place a try; thank you to all who have come before to guide the way. This place has both inside and outside seating, although when you eat outside, it feels like a very... More
