Very good restaurant

Very nice and big restaurant, it was almost full when we arrived and fortunately didn't wait for a table. The food is very good but expensive.

I am more of a huequito (hole in the wall) kind of guy when I eat in Lima but when having a business lunch, Pescados Capitales is a great choice. I had a Chupe de Langostinos and it was fantastic. The restaurant is very pleasant and the service is excellent.

If you live in Lima this would be one of your top spots for lunch. If you live in Yorkshire you will enjoy the experience

Of my restaurant visits in Lima, this was the stand-out disappointment. In my opinion, a classical high investment trap,now mostly visited by tourists,with waiters very highly strung with exaggerated service levels- and with the kitchen,despite the incredibly enticing menu, churning out dispassionate plates at high speeds.I could not finish my plate nor my glass of wine and left after 45...

Once inside, a bier served and eating corn with chili, you profit from the finest food. I recommend the ceviche, fresh, delicious and tasty along with grilled octopus. Then your heart hesitate between meat, grilled tuna and the fish of the day. I ordered the last one, grilled with garlic: a killing. Definitely go to this place to Taste these... More

Is actually been awhile since we've eaten here... I'm just catching up on my reviews. But this was always one of our best experiences and we often talk about how good our meal here was. Between the cute word play (in Spanish, of course) between Pecados Capitales and Pescados Capitales, and a menu that continues the pun and truly wonderful... More

A lovely open space ( choose to sit inside or out) trendy crowd , the freshest of ceviche makes for a perfect lunch. A very professionally run establishment firmly on the Lima restaurant scene , well worth the visit. Staff are helpful and welcoming , menu available in English, very helpful since each dish is described in some depth as... More

I know this place since several years, and it is one of my favourite restaurants in Lima. The food is excellent and every time I discover a new creation and it is always a delight. Prices are not low, but not exaggerated either mybe with the exception of the double Pisco Sour which is expensive at Soles 32. I particularly... More

We lunched on recommendation of a frequent business traveler to Lima. Great atmosphere outdoor eating and terrific hilarious menu (at least in English). Mussel ceviche to amuse bouche was very good. Main course of Arroz Mariscos was delicious with the tenderest octopus, lovely shrimp and sweet scallops. Wanted to try more dishes. Great crowd fun people watching too and great... More

Yesterday we ate a few really nice fish dishes in this restaurant, I was surprised by the quality of the grilled octopus and the ceviche we enjoyed as an appetiser. The whole menu revolves around the 7 sins or anagrams of various political figures in Peru. A very good experience with ok service. The negative was the fact that after... More
