As per our request the chef prepared a seafood soup which was not in the menu. The soup was really tasty! The service was very quick with several waiters, probably because of early evening time. The wine was suprisingly costly, so we ended up to pay nearly 200 soles for soups, wine and small bottles of water. The place is... More

This restaurant was recommended by tour guide. Close to Hotel in Miraflores district. The Cebiche sampler is a meal in itself. Three different types. I also ordered a meal with lobster but they had to subsitute shrimp that night. Everything was very delicious & service was excellent.

The good seafood restaurant in a quiet area of Miraflores. There is the rich variety of dishes, everything is tasty. Great seafood soup. The wine selection is not very large, and not always in the presence of wine from the menu. The staff is friendly and attentive. I recommend a visit.

We just enjoyed a CEBICHE boat, sole stew, and lucuma mousse. Delicious food, beautifully presented. Also had delightful service. Can't understand the negative reviews I saw on Trip Advisor. Either we enjoyed an aberration or others suffered through one. We plan to go back to Alfresco when we return to Lima and plan to return to Alfresco. I'll try to... More

The basic rule in restaurants is that each table should be assigned to a given waiter before guests sit down. On the other hand here anarchy seems to prevail: five minutes after we arrived, we were asked if we were ready and very naively we said we were not, but would love some water in the meantime - what a...

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel and I still wonder why... After we arrived, we waited for a good 5 minutes before the waiter finally took care of us, then the asparagus from my fiancee dish smelled like gasoline, my deep fried seafood was chewy and overcooked. The half bottle of white wine was very expensive compare to the... More

The food is excellent, I had Causa stuffed with crab and shrimp for the first time and I loved it. My husband had the Pacifico boat which is like a sampler platter and the cerviche was amazing and the grilled octopus was the tastiest I've had in sometime. The service however is non-existent. We virtually had no service from our... More

This was one of the very few good restaurants open Sunday night in Miraflores. Most peruvians have big family lunch/brunch and skip dinner on Sundays. We had the best raw ceviche appetizer on this trip here. Instead of fried whole sea bass, we asked it to be grilled and over a bed of fresh vegetables. It was terrific, came perfectly... More

No discussion about food quality.... It's outstanding. Prices are above average when compared to similar restaurants in Miraflores. Service is one of the worst we experienced in Lima. Try asking for assitance from a waiter and be really patient. Thinking of your health, do not think in asking them for advice. It's too much to expect. Up to here, I... More
