“Amazing...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

I have been living in Peru for 1 1/2 years now and have come to realize that this country has some of the best foodd in the world. And this restuarant is the best of them all. The grilled swordfish and mushroom rissoto is unbelieveable. I have had 5 or 6 dishes and all of them were amazing.

“Fresh, delicious and tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014 via mobile

Went with my wife in march. The ceviche was as fresh, the seasonings of the food were outstanding. A little bit overpriced. Service very good.

“A very nice lunch.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

The only reason we did not rate this restaurant with 5 “stars”, is that we have to be clear about comparisons between all other restaurants in Lima we ate in. There is some world class food to be had in Lima. This restaurant is not one of the best in Lima, but it was a pleasure to eat at. It is a large place but the service is excellent and the food very good. We are glad we chose it.

“Best meal we had in Lima..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

We were invited by my sister-in-law to eat lunch at Pescados Capitales on our recent visit to Lima, celebrating my father-in-law's 90th birthday. There were about 11 or 12 of us and we were all seated right away. The place is open air with no A/C, a bit warm, but not too bad, on this 80 degree day. Our waiter did an excellent job of keeping everyone happy. There were several appetizers ordered of fish, meat & other goodies...all were terrific...I ordered rice and seafood ( "arroz con mariscos"), kind of like a paella, and it was VERY good...my wife had fish and also said it was very good...desserts followed and again, very nice choices...after thinking about it, I thought this was the best meal we had out of 6 lunches & dinners in 3 days- and all the others were also very good, but this was the best, food wise...
