Best Place for lunch at the beach!

Big Ben has a good name and deserves it!! Cleanest cebiche I ever tried in Peru. The location is great, is not in front of a street, just sand and the ocean---I recomend you to start with a Crashed Crab, kind of soup, delicious. It was amazing experience of flavors!!

Unfortunately Big Ben only serves lunch and no dinner! From upstairs you can see the ocean and feel a nice breeze. My lomo saltado was good but not out of this world, same goes for the frozen limonada we had aside. Probably the best restaurant at the beach!

Above the 60's surfer vibe that resonates throughout Huanchaco is a retreat of great food; great drinks; and incredible views of the beach below. The sun keeps you warm. The food keeps you happy. The wait staff keeps you feeling special and the steady stream of special diners( engagement/ birthday/ etc) keeps you in the celebratory mood!

What a glorious restaurant! Please don't miss it if you are anywhere near this fishing and surfing location. We eat the best Cerviche I have ever tasted along with a mind blowing Pisco Sour. The hygiene is second to none, the waiters have a great command of English and the owner and his son, super friendly. As professional as any... More

This restaurant is located right in front of the beach and sea and has a great view. The prices are a bit expensive, but the food and service are very good. It is too bad that they are not open in the evening.

We came here with our organised tour. The location was lovely, but we were disappointed with the food. The causa had tinned tuna, the seabass I chose came with tinned mushrooms and asparagus and rather gloopy sauce. The peaches for dessert were also tinned, though the ice cream was good.

Excellent seafood restaurant, one of the best cebiches from Peru. Great views of the beach and the Huanchaco Pier. the atmosphere was great, with some tables in the terrace. Excellent service too. Quite expensive, however it worth’s it.

excellent, best ceviche ever, best chaufa de mariscos ever, the 5 items cool plate is the supreme dish, and the view to Huanchaco is unique, wonderful. The service is also very good, and the maracuya sour is the best of the best. Yummy.

My boyfriend and I came here for lunch on my 26th birthday. Immediately upon walking in we were greeted by at least three different staff and led to our table. The views of the beach are astounding, and I was quite literally blown away by the food. We were waited on like royalty, and ordered the classic Big Ben Ceviche,... More

I've eaten here on and off since 2009 - I surf the wave which breaks in front of the Hotel. The cooking, service, atmosphere, are all really first class. The views of Huanchaco are second to none. The service is formal but friendly and very professional. I've not eaten anywhere better and the place is consistently excellant. There is a... More
