This restaurant is one of the best restaurants in Lima for years and by far. I go to Lima every year and I always want to come back.

Nice place for a lunch or dinner. I was there on a warm day and has an excellent pisco sour and a very tasty ceviche. As entrée the very typical Peruvian chupe is a good choice. Service is very good and the names of the dishes are funny as they all refer to sins. Lovely vibe.

Really enjoyed Pescados Capitales. It was packed with local clients in a very casual atmosphere. We all had fish (trout, snapper and tuna). All were masterfully prepared. We had a great time and service was very good!

Not sure which one of the two restaurants they have are better...I've heard through the vineyard that the owners split and the La Mar place and the Surco place are now run by different administrations...nevertheless, both keep the good quality of food and service...keep it up!

Pescados Capitales has its ups and downs - it is up again! Food extraordinary, service excellent. Don't forget to ask for linen napkins, they have them but do not provide them unless you ask. Enjoy seafood as good as it gets!

I had the great fortune to work with a group of Peruvians who know their way around Lima's best eateries. This was a great discovery for me. The menu is a hoot. Dishes are creative without being over the top. Everything was exquisite. Save room for dessert! Atmosphere is rustic and informal—definitely a cool place to go.

This is a restaurant I had heard alot for years and finally decided to go on a business dinner. The first impression is poor. A mix between the looks of a Camp dinner hall and a garage full of tables. Very cold inside too. Not a fancy industrial garage in case you are wondering. Quite dissapointed on that side. On... More

A soggy pasta dish with a bland sauce. The ceviche was good for a medium serving, but pricey. You could get a lot more for cheaper elsewhere. Beware the awkward cover charge for setting the plates on the table? I could understand if there was a band playing but that was ridiculous. Plus it was cold in Pescados Capitales. Everyone... More

We went for lunch and the airy, open restaurant was packed with some tourists but mainly Peruvians on business lunches. I think this place had the best Pisco Sour I tasted, it did cost about $6.00 which I think was the most we paid for a pisco sour. Service and food excellent, if you are in Miraflores head here for...

Apart from the good fish dishes. Prices quite high. I would recommend mango Cheviche and had 2 chocolate soufflés which taken time to prepare so order ahead. Nice please but again other restaurants in Lima much better for the price and service.
