Well, you read the menu and you have to laugh! They did a great job in naming their plates. A+ for creativity. Food was pretty good. The grilled octopus was superior! Ceviche was tasty! It is in the pricey side. But the portions are reasonable. I will go back.

One of the best fish restaurants in Lima, but it became very expensive. Good service, fresh food and good flavors. Visit is a must. Bring your credit card!!

Very good food, nice ingredients. They do have some inventive variations of local dishes, plus some some ingredients from the jungle.
