Great seafood

We visited on an early Sunday evening. It is a challenge to find a good restaurant open on Sunday nights in Lima. We had walked by Alfresco in the afternoon, and it seemed quite busy.

The most delicious fish restaurant! We wanted excellent seafood in Lima and Alfresco did not disappoint. The tuna steak with coconut sauce was amazing. Such a wide selection of ceviche as well as other fish dishes (and a few meat dishes). Beautiful restaurant, efficient staff and reasonably priced. The wine is quite expensive, but when you are getting such amazing... More

i ordered the mixed seafood cerviche. It was so fresh and delicious! Probably one of the best meals I had in Lima, which was very unexpected. The bread is homemade, fresh, soft, and right out of the oven. I would highly recommend this restaurant. The atmosphere is comfortable, upscale yet cozy. The only negative is the wait staff. I found... More

This is a wonderful seafood/Peruvian restaurant. Food and service as well as atmosphere made us go back the next night. Be sure to have ceviche as well as the tres leches dessert, fabulous.

While in Lima, our taxi driver recommended Alfresco to us for lunch. We were looking for a good seafood restaurant and this was it! It's located in beautiful Miraflores near the ocean. We ordered the Ahi Tuna (medium rare) served with shrimp, asparagus and the most delicious sauce and topped with "crunchies". The presentation was beautiful! We ordered white wine... More

In a city known for spectacular food, it's nice to go someplace with interesting food that is not too trendy. This was a very comfortable place for a meal with a colleague, conveniently located in Miraflores. The menu offers a nice range of choices. Service was very good. Food was nicely prepared and attractively presented. There was nothing really exceptional... More

Hotel staff recommended Alfresco when my husband and I recently visited Miraflores and we were looking for a nice place to have dinner. It was in walking distance from our hotel and we received a complimentary Pisco Sour upon our arrival. The menu had good variety and lots of choices. Our dinners were excellent as was the service. Cost was... More

We ate here the first night in Lima as it was close to our hotel. The food was OK, but pretty standard fare. The servers paid little attention. My wife's request for agua con gas was ignored, even though he repeated it back. My request for a copa de vino blanco, brought two. If you are staying in the area... More

It's Sunday and many restaurants are closed so we were advised to try Alfresco Restaurant. An excellent suggestion! Forget about previous critics claiming the meals are small and the service is slow! The food was great and the service was friendly and informative. We strongly recommend you share a mixture of the appetisers and entrees and bypass the mains. These... More
