This restaurant is an excellent choice in Lima to go out with friends and take drinks by the deck or take that special someone to enjoy a great meal at any time. I totally recommend it

A warm welcome, a pisco sour on arrival, of course, and a small and very well thought-out menu. A delightful meal. Not many of the staff spoke english - didn't matter at all. Tricky to order a straight-forward coffee afterwards. Overall, a great meal. Try to get a table on the balcony - sea breeze and beautiful views.

For a first timer in Peru and in South America, together with the fact that I'm coming from North America - the food and services were great. Price wise - you are paying extra 30% for the view. There is a super nice lounge underneath the restaurant. Very much western and seems like a normal high end bar you will... More

Great view but the staff and servers aren't the friendliest and not very accomodating. We have visited several times and although their food is very good, their menu and facebook page show that they have the finest and most expensive fish "lenguado" but they always seem to be out of it when we go...(reminder: on several occasions). They also seem... More

We went to this restaurant with my family on August 24, 2014. It was my 2nd time. We asked to be sitting outside to contemplate and feel the ocean breeze, it was great. The food is okay. My expectations were higher. The pisco sour was not good. I had delicious pisco sour in many other places around Peru. The breads... More

We had dinner at Cala, which is by the water in Barranco. The specialty is seafood. The place was packed with a mix of tourists and locals. The menu is quite extensive with a long list of appetizers. We shared appetizers as portions were pretty sizable. The shrimps with risotto was very good as well as the trout. Very good... More

This place is fab! With a spectacular view of the ocean, you can sit back and relax in the shade. Enjoy their wonderful sushi and have a cocktail with it.

We were seated quite early (6:30 p.m.). There were 2 waiters waiting on the outdoor deck facing the ocean. I came with my partner. Our waiter was VERY surly toward us. Then he went back to the server station and I overheard him telling the other server, in Spanish, that he begrudgingly had to wait on the two homosexual males... More

This restaurant in Lima is situated up on the bluffs in Montefiore, and with a table by the ocean, you have a great view of the coastline ----as well as watching the pelicans feed in the surf. The food is excellent-----when we ordered the "chicken soup", we received a bowl that would have fed a family of six!!. The noodle... More
