Great seafood restaurant in the middle of the city, one of the best ceviches I have ever eaten. Definite stop!

I had the chipotle octopus, "spicy" shrimp and avocado, patacones, and rice. The chipotle octopus was the star and ultimately what I am reviewing. Don't leave without trying it. Everything else was so so. Very empty on a Monday night and a bit expensive.

Called in here for lunch just before the crowds arrived. Seemed a very popular place with tables being filled very quickly around 1230 for lunch. We ordered the specials for the day which turned out to be two large (and I mean large), fresh Colombian shrimps for starters. The main course was excellent as well. The desserts were scrumptous!

I've enjoyed a nice dinner with my colleagues in this restaurant, where you can try many dishes of tasty food (mainly fish) at affordable prices. Chevices are very good, in particular the spicy versions. The place is visited by local people and also foreiners, the restaurant in fact maintains a good balance between local cuisine and international standards. Service was... More

Some of the best seafood since Seattle or Boston. I had the grilled seafood platter. It had the best grilled octopus with shrimp, squid, and roasted potatoes. My associate had the grilled tuna and both were great. But, the platter was the best all for 46k pesos or a little over $15!

The menu is varied but mainly seafood; the food is excellent (fusion Peruvian/Colombian, done in a very sophisticated way), the ambience is posh yet relaxing, prices are not high but it is not a cheap place either, plus service is excellent. An ideal recipe for a great lunch or dinner, although I have seen it packed at 3 to 5... More

I came for a light dinner and had a great ceviche. They have an extensive ceviche menu with may choices. I ordered a spicier one which was fantastic. It was full of flavor and the combination of fish, shrimp and octopus was great. I highly recommend this place for ceviche lovers like myself!

I came here with some business associates for dinner. We ordered different ceviches and they were all out of this world. Very flavorful and portions were good. We also ordered the Sangria (which ended up being half of the bill), and, although it was freshly made I would probably do just fine with a beer next time. They bring out... More
