We could not say more positive things about how delicious the food here was!! We ordered from the chefs special menu and have craved these meals again ever sense. The location isn't far from downtown Miraflores and there aren't many tourists there. We loved it!

While visiting from the US, we found this restaurant via TripAdvisor by searching for ceviche in Lima. The reviews were great so we tried it. It lived up to the reviews. The ceviche mixto was terrific. We also tried the grilled octopus and it, too, was wonderful. We really enjoyed the staff - although only one waiter spoke English -... More

Nice restaurant and excellent food. If you want to experience a great ceviche you have to visit this place. Prices are right and service is friendly. Mondays are closed and open only from 12 to 5pm.

This restaurant is only open for lunch. It's frequently mostly by local business people. Very good for ceviche and other seafood dishes especially their soups and stews.

This was our first ceviche of Lima, and it did not disappoint! We went with the micro and it was fantastic. Definitely pop in if you're in the neighborhood.

My family and I had taken a half day tour of Lima and our guide recommended this restaurant to us. We were hungry, so we had him drop us there instead of taking us back to our hotel. What an excellent decision. We were blown away by the freshness and preparation of the fish dishes we ordered. Our waiter who... More
