Another delicious seafood place in Lima Peru!

Pescados Capitales is one of the places where you will find good food and nice drinks in a nice location in Lima. They have very nice seafood. I recommend to go in advance in order to not wait because for lunch the place is always full. However, the waiting worths the while. You might be waiting... read more

Went for lunch. We were early by local standards (noon) and only one other table in this rather spacious restaurant was occupied. It filled up quickly however. The menu was clever. The restaurant name was a play on words Pescados = Fish but Pecados = Sins. The menu was divided into sections, each devoted to one of the cardinal sins.... More

Not worth it. The service was really good, the atmosphere was ok, the food was average, the prices quite high. We paid 200 PEN for an entrants, two main dishes, a bottle of water and a dessert... there are way better options in town which offer delicious food at the same price, or the same food for cheaper prices.

I have been to La Mar and this place is equally as good in my opinion. The place feels like an outdoor cafe with a roof overhead. The service is above average and food very good. Great for lunch or dinner. The specific area feels a little gritty but that adds to the overall character of the place. Excellent pisco... More

Excellent restaurant, one of the best in terms of seafood. Place and ambience is nice but the dishes are indeed phenomenal. Staff is polite and efficient and very savvy of the many dishes and ingredients. A top notch restaurant by every measure. Do not miss it.

The restaurant menu and name is a whimsical play on words, with pecados (pescados without the s) cardinales translating to cardinal sins. We had fun reading the item descriptions but were a bit suspicious at the whimsy. But they delivered in wonderful substance! Our group of three shared three fish dishes (two were starters), a salad and two luscious desserts.... More
