This place is obviously popular not only with the tourists but with locals, who flocked to the place on a Sunday afternoon. Luckily, we got there right before opening time (12:30) and secured a table of our choice. You might want choose an outdoor table if you can as the noise levels rose considerably as the place filled with happy... More

During my stay in Lima, I had opportunities to dine at both "Pescados Capitales" restaurants. The one at Miraflores being in an area rich in restaurants, it is less intimate than the one in Chacarilla, but is still pleasant, with efficient service. The food is both clearly rooted in traditional Peruvian seafood cuisine and nicely inventive. Originality is not there... More

I then had Paiche - also known as arapaima A massive river from the Amazon. This was delicious and something I have never had before. others in our group had ceviche scallops and ravioli... More

It is a very traditional seafood restaurant in Lima. We as for suggestions from the waitress and decide to share plates! Excellent decision!! The large plate is enough to give us a taste of different options of very tasty dishes, including a mushroom ceviche!! Definitely will recomend!!

Best place in Lima to enjoy a ceviche. Great service and atmosphere. Great outdoor seating area. There are a lot pf cevicherias around this great city but none compare to this one.

If you are looking for a nice fish restaurant to dine in Miraflores, considering that the most popular cebicherias close at 5 pm, Pescados Capitales is definitely a good address. You can find several inspirations and a largo choice of ceviche and tiradito. I tried the mixed ceviche and it was really nice. As a main course I ate delicious... More

We visited the location in the Surco neighborhood but were told that the restaurant is very similar to lima's. The menu is very overwhelming but fun to read. Take some time to read through each page and description of the dishes, some of them are hilarious! It's as if each dish has a life story. We started with the grilled... More
