Amazing

Amazing food! Great ambience. Try the maracuja pisco sour. I had the risotto with camarones and it was delicious. My friends had the ceviche sampler. Check it out.

The view is fantastic and most of all, if it is quite enough, you are right on the beach so, you will have the relaxing sound of the waves. The food is great and severed very well. The service is fantastic and you will always find one or 2 waiters that speak English.

The restaurant is a great place to eat down by the seaside, enjoying the gastronomy of Peru. But the lounge was even better, great electronic music and drinks to end, or begging, the night with friends in a very cool ambiance next to waves. Unique place in Lima.

We popped by Cala on our way back from El Barranco. The restaurant is ideally situated by the ocean, but a bit hard to access if you're not already on the beach. The highway is under construction so traffic is a bit crazy in the area. We didn't have reservations, but were lucky enough to be seated upstairs on the... More

We chose this restaurant because we wanted to go somewhere special on the last night of a three week vacation in Peru. We had to be asked to be seated even though we had Reservation they kind of indicated to sit anywhere. Drink service was so slow & no cocktail menu was given. We ordered half our order & they...

Had dinner here with friends. It was Friday night and the place was packed. The food and service were both very good. The booming house music from the bar downstairs was a bit loud.

Food was excellent. Service was a little confusing but maybe it was just an off day. Location is perfect right on the water. Request a seat outside.

If you are looking for a place next to the ocean to enjoy a nice Piscu Sour and the sunset look no further. This place is just awesome!
