This place is full of locals...and it is easy to understand why...go on a sunny day and eat outside and enjoy the fresh fish with a cold one. I of course, always have the tiradito and the ceviches which are always perfect.

Pescados Capitales is good seafood restaurant. Although they do have some meat and pasta entrees, the reason to go is for their EXTENSIVE seafood menu. About that menu: it attempts to be very clever by equating various categories of seafood with different types of sins, and making the descriptions of the dishes witty. First of all, this concept made no... More

I give a second chance to Pescados Capitales and unfortunately. It was not the best outcome. Food was extemely salty and simple. For the price you paid you could expect a better presentation and more creativity with the dishes. Service was terrible it took them 5 minutes to acknoledge our family and offer as a chair. There is so many... More

First time my husband and i have tried ceviche. Yum! such an exotic taste and flavour. Loved also the BBQ octopus and the cocktails, the Pisco Sour was served so chilled. A great lunch and afternoon.

We were advised to come and we thanked him afterwards. What a nice place! Although we had no reservation, we could seat in a good place. The menu is very funny as all the names of the dishes play with the name of the restaurant ("pescados" means "fish" but "pecados" means "sins"). You can find, then, all capital sins and... More

My husband and I ate dinner here on our last night in Lima, on our way to the international airport, upon the recommendation of our hostel owner/ foodie (Marcus from Lima Backpackers Hostel) who said it was one of the best seafood restaurants in Lima - and after eating there I can understand why! We both had superbly cooked and... More

If you like seafood this is the place to be in Lima. fresh, good portion size, cooked with care and to perfection, served with passion. great ambience. packed even on a weekday dinner. loved the food and the decor. gives a bright warm feeling. the scallops were to die for - yummy. everything was just perfect. would certainly revisit.

A taxidriver mentioned this restaurant to us. Defenitely worth mentioning. It looks too big, and too empty but the setting makes it very cozy. The waiters are young but very helpfull and service*minded, Fiid is excellent. We had the best ceviche in this place (we stayed for almost 3 weeks in S-America and ate several times ceviche)

Delicious roasted octopus. Chicha morada was very good. The fish was quite average. We were with a larger group and it seemed to have confused the waiters though. Since dinner was offered by a partner organisation in Peru, I really cannot comment on the prices.
