Like other Tripadvisor reviewers we found the food quite good, nice service. But when the bill came, all the prices had been increased by 10-15% relative to the menu!! I asked the waiter if this was the tip (propina). No: it was a computer error. Again?! Go to Alfresco because the food is good, but CHECK your bill!!

This is a well laid out restaurant.....attentive staff and so on...and they make very good Pisco Sours. The food was quickly served and looked very good, but lacked flavour...we did both try different things and both felt the same. Its not inexpensive......for two sours, two main courses and a bottle of wine it was about 270 soles, not a huge... More

Our hotel recommended Alfresco when we requested local seafood. Just a short walk away, we walked into a quiet area and sested immediately, we did have a reservation. We were given a small bowl of toasted corn kernels that we could've snacked on all evening, however we were here for dinner. We ordered, and thoroughly enjoyed Salmon Menier, which had... More

The food was not according the menu. My risotto was with crab, skid and shrimps but only had hard skid. Even after complaining they don't care about it. But the worst was the final bill where I paid 159 soles and they charged me 30 soles more as a tip without my authorization. I hope my credit card bank will... More

Thanks to our waiter we tried the grilled octopus. Something that I was surprised my wife would jump on. Octopus when it consists of all of a small octopus is not a pretty thing, however it was served with a few potatoes and grilled vegetable and as long as you didn't concentrate on it then it was fantastic. For entrees... More

A favorite with locals that is also full of tourists heading off to or back from Machu Picchu, the vibe is open and bustling. The menu is vast and somewhat confusingly presented, but our friendly waiter helped us make sense of it. Wine list is affordable; we stuck to Chilean and Argentinian wines. All the fish were delicious, but some... More

Hands down one of the nicest fish restaurants I've ever been for! The service was perfect, ambiance just right, food was amazing! And whilst I was driving buoys based on the number of dishes available everything was clearly very fresh (could have come direct from the sea!!). The fish carpaccio in particular was amazing! If you're in Lima eat here.... More

This time it was lobster Thermador ravioli...fantastic! Creamy, cheezy lobster goodness! The locale is great as is the location. Quieter than a little farther uptown, located about halfway between Kennedy Park and el parquet del amor. Service is second to none and you don't wait as long as one could for such a quality meal. I have been a big... More

I was there for a second time and again I had a great time and splendid service. Food is very good - sea food is the best :-)

Alfresco was suggested to us by various people, so we figured we had to try it. It's a bit formal in presentation (it is in Miraflores after all), and seemed to attract an older, more professional crowd, but the service was impeccable, and the food was excellent. We had a tiradito three ways that simply cannot be missed (it beat... More
