Must Visit in Lima

We came by for an early lunch and were able to avoid the lineups by arriving at about 11AM. The server was very helpful in helping us navigate the menu and recommending the top choices on the menu. We ended up trying the tasters of Ceviche and it was a unique Peruvian experience. We also had a... read more

Loved the experience of coming here. Dishes are served with exotically, they respect the lightness of the seafood and don't swamp the dish with sauces. Ys, it is spicy generally - hey it is South America!. The staff are energetic and fun. If you are a couple, take a seat at the bar. The interaction with the staff is great... More

Went here on a Sunday for lunch - great atmosphere. Long lines, but I got seated at the bar right away. Enjoyed watching the dishes being prepared right in front of me. The mixed ceviche was fantastic, and more than enough for one person. Highly recommend for your ceviche stop in Lima.

What a great joint - the food was fresh and beyond delicious. The atmosphere was awesome - sort of 'upscale beach-y' - really fun place, amazing huge menu - even some vegetarian options, which you wouldn't expect from a cebecheria. Among the best restaurants I tried in Peru. Strongly recommend! Only negative was the service was a *tiny* bit slow... More

We loved it: the atmosphere, the food, the service. It's not surprising that this restaurant is included in Time magazine's article of top 10 things to do in Lima nor that it figures at the top of TripAdvisor's list of Lima restaurants. Our server, Flor, was excellent, and helped us choose the right dishes for our experience. We had the... More

When we arrived we knew we would have to wait (since they don't take reservations) but it was worth it. We had to wait 45min but it didn't feel like that long since you can order some entrées while waiting. We ordered a plate of 3 kinds of cebiche, this was THE BEST cebiche i had in my life, specially... More

When you read about the Peruvian cuisine you hear about Gaston, this is one of his restaurants and the food is spectacular! After having lunch here we looked for other restaurants he's a part of and so far they have all been great!

As for fish and at a modest price La Mar is good. Various choices of seafood and fish done in a very careful manner with very educated assistance.

My wife and I have been on a culinary tour of Peru and can say without hesitation La Mar has been the best experience thus far. I thought with all the hype and build up we would be dissapointed but nothing could be further from the truth. Great atmosphere and service, fresh inventive juice and ceviche dishes popping with flavour,... More
