Very tasty shrimp risotto

Our group of 5 came here upon the recommendation of the manager of our nearby hotel. I've read that ceviche is one of their specialties, but since I had ceviche already at several places in Lima, I wanted to try something different. I had the shrimp risotto, and it was delicious.

I had a grilled grouper with shrimp and a yellow curry sauce that was very good. It also came with the puréed corn on the side and rolls that were piping hot out of the oven. I will be back again.

For mains we all had the grilled Charella in thyme sauce with sautéed potatoes and Lyonnaise potataoes. For desert we tried the Lucuma cheesecake both dishes were perfectly cooked and our waiter was very attentive. The restaurant provides complimentary warm bread rolls with garlic butter and fried corn nuts. Very affordable, fresh food.

Excellent food, mainly but not exclusively, fish. Service is very attentive, but not intrusive. Very pleasant and calm in the midst of Lima chaos. Everything we've had here has been nice, and they will tellyou what's in the food. They will serve not too hot ceviche, and try the tasting dessert!!

We had been pointed to the restaurant by two guides and thought oh well. - Can report, everything perfect. Loved the Chevice, which was quite a generous portion and the Alfresco mixed platter also turned out to be very nice.

Alfresco is located in Miraflores close to Lover's Park area. The restaurant is spacious and the large glass windows make it warm and bright - ideal for lunches. There are quite many waters/waitresses in the restaurant and designated waiter/waitress makes your meal very comfortable and relaxed. I've asked on chilcano with passionfruit and the drink came out right away. I... More

This is a fine restaurant in one of Lima's most fashionable, affluent neighborhoods. The menu is varied, although what we selected proved to be a little too rich with creamy sauces. The service is excellent, the ambiance pleasant, and the prices were modest, in view of the overall elegance of the establishment.
