A little bit disappointed

The food was good (ceviche) but we were a bit disappointed that there was no tuna fish nor salmon available when we visited this restaurant. It was also cold in the room.

Maybe it was the 3 weeks in the Andes prior to the meal - but we had a lovely dining experience! Staff are attentive, menus varied, great explanations on choices and advise. The shared Ceviche was a hit with delicious flavors. Mains were all good but points go to the Snapper for dramatic presentation. Great choice for Peruvian seafood!

I visited on my own while spending a night in Lima and was thoroughly impressed with what they served. I had a mixture of shrimp and fish ceviche and it was excellent.

I've been at Alfresco with some colleagues after an hard day of work in Lima... We managed to relax in this lively and nice restaurant and enjoy an exquisit selection of plates (chevice, pulpo, arroz, ....). The fish was very good and I recommend to try the sharing plates presented as starters (the "pulpo" on the grill is phenomenal), all... More

My son was returning to the US so I wanted something memorable for his last meal in Lima. the hotel recommended Alfresco which was within easy walking distance. We arrived relatively early by Lima standards ( before 7) and had the whole place to ourselves. we shared the ceviche and the stuffed bell peppers ( both excellent ) and the... More

We had a fantastic last meal in Peru here at Alfresco's before we left the next day to return to the states. This restaurant was recommended to us by a local tour guide. I was a little hesitant when the front desk of our hotel handed us a confirmation of our reservation on a restaurant-branded card offering a free drink.... More

We had the mixed ceviche as an appetizer and it was DELICIOUS! We were hungry so my daughter had the duck with rice and... More
