Our tour guide suggested this restaurant in Miraflores. There was no doubt that it appeared to be a bit dearer than other restaurants in the immediate vicinity, however the food was lovely and fresh and nobody from our group had any complaints about the wait staff. In fact I found the staff to be courteous and helpful throughout the evening... More

I was concerned as others have mentioned because the restaurant was recommended by the hotel with a free pisco sour coupon. But I have now had 3 of the best meals I had in Lima, right here at this restaurant. I usually don't go back to the same place twice while on vacation - just to try to try new... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel concierge. I wasn't sure about it, but it was too late with not many more options, so we went for dinner. It was a very good surprise. The seafood was excellent. Both the cebiche and the octopus were perfectly prepared and presented. Great service too.

The food is "okay", but far from justifying the sky-high prices. The utter humourlessness of the waiters makes for a tense evening.

For some reason, I was somewhat doubtful about this restaurant promoted by tour operators and hotel concierges but I was proven wrong. I had grilled sea bass with prawns on a bed of mixed vegetables finished with a classic Peruvian yellow pepper sauce. It was outstanding. My companions had langostino stuffed ravioli and grilled sole in a seafood sauce. All... More

The guide for our half day Lima Tour recommended this place when we told him we wanted Ceviche for lunch. When we arrived I thought it was a good sign that there were both locals and tourists dining there. While there were other menu items my entire family ordered different varieties of ceviche and it was all excellent! Service was... More

Some beautifully-presented, tasty dishes for a little more than we'd expected to pay in Peru, but the overall value was worth it. Good location 10 minutes walk from our hotel in Mira Flores, pretty inside, lots of windows, good service.

We were in Lima for two nights only and Alfresco was recommended by our guide. It is a large barn of a place but with attentive and helpful staff. We have a mixed seafood platter to start - OK but some of the items were not cooked properly - we didn't really fancy raw prawns. Our main course was grouper... More
