Everything was excellent, the restaurant has a great reception, excellent service, has a nice view of the Pacific Ocean. The quality of the food was excellent, the service was excellent as well. The restaurant has a great location and it's really clean, it's highly recommended.

Food poison!! 3 of us got sick. Not acceptable For such an expensive and reference restaurant. Food was good but I don't recommend as obviously they don't have quality standards. This seems to be an issue in Lima..

Great place to gather with friends or family to enjoy a nice meal overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The food is great and at a reasonable price. While you may be the only ones at the restaurant it is also a great place to start the evening with appetizer and drinks to watch the sunset over the pacific.

Wonderful beachfront dining and very close to the Bajada del Bano in Barranco.. Food was great and the cusquenas fria! A bit difficult to access via walking and the music in the lounge was loud to say the least. Had a very good late afternoon lunch and happy hour!

Ended up eventually at Cala and found a table. The restaurant was pretty full. It is right next to the Barranquito beach and some tables... More

Service was extremely slow and poor. Decoration nothing special very simple. Linens were humid and in bad condition. Flowers were not fresh. Food was equally disappointing. We had dinner Sunday, Aug 8,2015.

We enjoyed the atmosphere of the restaurant. right next to the sea. We sat outside. The service was excellent. The food was very good, but I would not say excellent. If you are close by, I recommended it.

I went with three friends, we all got something different, and all were good. The fish dishes are great and one friend got the roast beef...also good. It is not cheap (You can get cheaper) but the ambiance is what you are paying for.
