We were a large group with kids and staff was very good, handling everybody, kids and adults. Excellent food. Make sure to leave room for dessert, the creme brule of arroz con leche is worth it! if you are a large group better make reservations.

Recommended by a taxi driver as Lima's best seafood, we had to try this restaurant. We weren't disappointed. We ordered fettucini with prawns and sashimi - style salmon in a citrus-infused wasabi soy sauce and each enjoyed our choice. Service was super fast. For dessert we ordered a creme brulee with rice and coconut base and coconut icecream. It was... More

This is a modern, upscale restaurant with a clean, refreshing ambiance, great service and delicious food. Ceviche was deliciously tasty. Great balance of flavor with fish, onions, lemon and pepper. Risotto was more colorful than tasty. White fish and was good. Best part of the dinner was the ceviche. Portions were plentiful. No room for dessert! This place is huge!... More

The restaurant was very nice, big and clean. Service was excellent and food was amazing. We ordered: Tequeños, Conchitas a la parmesana, Tiradito y pulpo a la parrila. Drinks were really good too, try their Pisco Sour and Chilcanos.

We had dinner on a Monday night. This is a pretty large restaurant but it was only half full (I understand it is packed at lunch). The seafood is really fresh. My wife had calamari and shrimp in a cream sauce with fettuccine and I had camarones and white fish in a broth with vegetables. Yum. Service was friendly. We... More
