Visited twice for dinner and was pleased on both occasions

Good food and great portions. The service was kind too. Be careful not to order too much even though the waiters will be telling you to order "maybe one more" :)

I was lucky enough to have this restaurant included in a city tour. Despite the fact that it was part of a tour plan, the food was so delicious. It came at rapid speed, yet maintained an excellent taste. Certainly worth going to if in the neighborhood-or travelling to.

I visit Al Fresco every time I visit Lima. Unbelievable ceviche and Jalea. Love the Maracuya Pisco Sour. Great Service! Highly recommended. I would go back every time.

We had lunch at this restaurant as part of our day trip of Lima. The set menu had choices for each course and as we had been told that the restaurant won the best cerviche on 3 consecutive occasions, we all decided to try this for our starter. Their cerviche consisted of octopus as well as squid and fish so... More

Our hotel recommended this to us and with good reason. We had just arrived in Lima and wanted to try the local cuisine - especially Ceviche and we were not disappointed. The service was quietly attentive and we were persuaded to try the fresh octopus which was very tender and quite delicious. They did not have the wine we wanted... More

I met up with friends here who absolutely love this place and I wasn't disappointed. We had the grilled octopus for our appetizer which was good and very flavorful but a little tough for my liking. Maybe if they pressure cooked the octopus them grilled it, it might be more tender. I had a Malbec to start and then a... More

All of the food was excellently prepared and served in a setting that feels as if you were outdoors but it was an enclosed very attractive patio attached to a colonial building. The wine list was reasonably priced.

We had a four course lunch here and the food ceviches was the best part. My husband had tuna filet that was also lovely. The meal was quite lovely but there were limited dairy free options for my lactose intolerance. I longingly watched my husband eat the two desserts that came with our set menu lunch because they both had... More

Fantastic fresh fish and seafood served in lots of interesting ways. Highly recommend the ceviche, and the fish crudo - thin strips of raw fish. Walking distance from the beach and lovers park. Top: expect large portions!

We started with a complimentary Pisco Sour (local drink) and the meal was amazing! Great staff who were also very knowledgeable about the dishes and best wine options
