We enjoyed a very fine lunch, with a beautiful view over the Pacific Ocean. Do not miss the opportunity if you are in the area.

“Best Seafood + View in Peru”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2011

Lunch is probably the best meal here. Sitting on the third deck, overlooking the ocean, enjoying a modestly prices menu, with lots of seafood choices. Also amazing if all you want is a drink, watch the sunset, and snack on some pequeños. Ceviche de corvina (sea bass) is good, causa de atun (tuna with avacado), and all the corvina (sea bass) dishes will blow you away.

“Spectacular!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2011

One of the best seafood restaurants in Peru and definitely the best in Huanchaco. The cangrejo reventado is out of this world. The ceviche is as fresh as it can be. The service is extremely attentive and the view is probably the best in Huanchaco. A must if you're in Trujillo.

“Stunning seafront setting, exquisite seafood, wonderful afternoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2011

The four of us came here one afternoon after a hot morning visiting Chan Chan in the arid desert and it would have been hard to imagine a better spot to spend the afternoon eating exquisite seafood and drinking Pisco sours and beer while watching the sun setting over the Pacific.

This was low season so the place was kind of empty, but the service was attentive and professional. The fish and seafood was fresh and tasty with causa, grilled shrimp and the sole ceviche highlights for us. These were also the best pisco sours we had on the trip. This isn't a dinner place and if you're not staying in Huanchaco it's probably best to get a taxi back to your hotel.

“The best Ceviche ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2011

Big Ben's is only open for lunch - I believe from 11 AM to 6 PM. It's a great place to stop before or after visiting Chan Chan - the largest adobe city in the world. It's in a pretty beach town of Huanchaco - an easy drive from Trujillo - 7 miles away. You must sit upstairs on the outdoor patio to appreciate the view of the coastline and the ocean. You should also order the ceviche combination plate - be sure to order the ceviche dish that includes the seaweed - it has many other delicious items on the plate. Ceviche and beer is a fantastic combination. Then, after lunch you can stroll along the walkway through the town of Huanchaco.
