Whatever..... Some many better choices

For locals this is a OK restaurant for Peruvian food. Much better are Francesco, el grifo,(my favorite by far of Peruvian homey food) la mar.

We had one dinner opportunity in Miraflores and chose Alfresco - it was a great choice! The service, the presentation of the dishes, the atmosphere, the quality and uniqueness of the food did not disappoint. The ZODIAC PACÍFICO appetizer was a beautiful and delicious sampler of the flavors of the Lima region and included ceviche, octopus brochettes, sweet potato sushi... More

My wife and I had dinner here the other night. Service is attentive and the food was so delicious! The salmon main was seriously the best I've ever had. I don't understand why some people think Alfresco is over priced. I think the price is very reasonable for the quality and quantity of the food as well as the great... More

This restaurant is a classic lunch option. If you like cebiche and other tipical peruvian food, you cannot miss. The food maintains its quality over the years. The risotto negro with calamari and shrimps is my favourite (but you must not be scared by the black color, tinted from calamari)

Review Alfresco In the land of brand named Inka Farma, Inka Cash, Inka Textiles where is Inka Service? Well it wasn't at Alfresco's. I write this a few days later so I can temper the language. 8 weeks in Peru and this was by far, one of the worst restaurant experiences, by far. It beat the Chifa (Chinese) restaurant in... More

We ate here based on the recommendation of our hotel's concierge. While it’s clearly a popular place, we weren’t especially impressed with the food though perhaps we picked the wrong things; a couple ceviches and cocktails were about $40.

Compared with many places in Lima this is - in my opinion - a little inferior. Quality of food is not bad, but is not easy to place the order. Not very professional waiters give the impression to just try to sell you the expensive options independently of your will. To much used to first trip foreign visitors they only... More
