This was some of the best ceviche we had in Peru (outside of Astrid y Gaston). If you're a fan of ceviche, highly recommend the trio. The mains were ultimately pretty forgettable. We had the passionfruit and coca pisco sours and they were both stiff and delicious. However, it's very touristy. We got directed there by our hotel (Four Points... More

The dinner we had at Alfresco was a seafood bonanza and cost just $33 a person for more food than we could eat. We had a seafood boat, ceviche sampler and tuna steak. Everything was amazing tasting, the only downside was the very small waters they have for s/10 each. Glad we waited until Lima for ceviche as this was... More

Having recently come home from Peru and eaten cebiche in several places, this was the best I had. Plus it was the best pisco sour I had among many. We had been walking along the beach area and were headed back to our hotel when we ran into this restaurant at the same time I and my traveling companion decided... More

Alfresco was a nice change from the alternative restaurants in the area. It's waiters were non-aggressive and very accommodating to tourists (who speak little Spanish). The atmosphere was cosy and delightful. I went with 9 other guests, and they served our meals within a reasonable amount of time, and it was all warm. Recommendations: "Chalupa Del Cebichero" - which is... More

Seafood is always a must to have in Lima. Here they honor that fame and give you a great experience in the joy of the good food. Enjoy a great ceviche and a pisco sour in a warm environment. Food, and service are at glance

Lima has become one of the capitals of the world for foodies, and I am among them. Of course, seafood is the specialty. I have eaten here on several of my trips to Miraflores and have always fund it it to be of high quality. They are patient with my bad Spanish, although I know that they speak English!

We chose 2 different ceviches, pure fish, and the mixed. Very large portions, perfect for lunch. We could not have eaten anything else after this. However, the large plate of grilled octopus looked delicious and wish we had someone to share that plate with us. The service was excellent, a mix of tourists and Peruvians. Lots of rice and seafood... More
