We had one of the Ceviche trios and each ceviche was tasty, although my favorite was the classic ceviche. The food was very good, including the "free" appetizer they bring out. The wait can be long since it is such a popular place but I did not see anyone leave the line because of the wait (even when the wait... More

Our entire meal was a delight from start to finish. My husband had a ceviche that was perfect along with calamari and a causa that was delicious. I had a fusion dish with a fish and shrimp that was perfectly prepared. The service was perfect, the restaurant ambience was lively yet comfortable. I wouldn't hesitate to return or recommend. Few...

In a sort of fishermen's atmosphere for well-off people the quality and presentation of the dishes is excellent.

We've been to La Mar a few times now and just love it ! The food is very good, try Arroz Tumbes with conchas negras and of course the different ceviches proposed. The cocktails are good too ! I was curious about their Bloody Mary with shells but really didn't like it , that's just me though..

We wondered what all the fuss was about so went at noon and found out. Terrific service, very fresh fish and wide variety. If you like fresh fresh you need to go but go at noon or after 2 as between these times the lines can be very long. Only open for lunch.

Cebiche was good, stick with the classic though. Grilled octopus was alright and they gave us a beyond generous portion of fried calamari.
