Lo mejor de comida Peruana

Came with my family and had a lovely time with absolutely delicious food. The ceviche and jalea was amazing. Staff very friendly, restaurant ambiance very comfortable and again, the food was absolutely delicious. Couldn't recommend it enough. A must visit either alone or with family and/or friends.

If you want the best ceviche, go to La Mar. They have a dish where you try 3 of their ceviches and and I only wish they were bottomless. Can't miss this place. And try amorelado ice cream across the street for dessert.

If you like fresh seafood, then La Mar should be on your short list of required restaurants during your visit to Peru. While it is only open for limited afternoon hours, we arrived as they opened and within an hour they were at capacity. Our party of 4 left it to our server to recommend appetizers (to include their incredible... More

We visited on our final day in Lima, and honestly was one of the best meals I had in peru. The ceviche was fresh and delicious, as were the main courses we had to share. If i ever go back, I will definitely pay this place another visit.

This is a must try if you like ceviche and Peruvian food. It was busy when we got there but didn't have to wait long since we were willing to sit the bar. Loved both their Bloody Mary and Pisco sours. One of the best bloody Mary's I have had. We had a lot of food-mixed causes, baked scallops with... More

La Mar for us is the best balance of everything that a lunchtime restaurant experience should be. Fabulous food, kicking cocktails, great service, brilliant atmosphere, it isn't cheap but it isn't crazy expensive so all good and its light its got a flow of air, its always busy but not too hectic, every time we go it puts a smile...

This place simply blew me away! Incredible food! At waiter's suggestion, we went for ceviche sampler (3 different types of ceviche) and grilled octopus. It was sooo good, I had to slow down to enjoy it as much as possible. Tge best ceviche of all times - don't make a mistake by skipping it. The chips they serve as a... More

The line-ups was fairly long due to the popularity of this place, so definitely have a reservation if you're in a large group. We were just two, and we waited about 20 minutes to get our spots at the bar. I ordered the scallops as an appetizer and the three ceviches sampler. Unfortunately, my ceviche came first and my appetizer... More

Ceviche mixto wasn't all that special, but the tuna ceviche was amazing! Food was reasonably priced considering the high quality.
