With my wife and another couple went for lunch to this place. We made reservations the same day and got a table on the second floor with the ocean view. We had the Tiradito Francesco, traditional ceviche, causa de cangrejo and a couple of other piqueos that we shared. Everything tasted as expected. We also had pisco sours that were... More

Came here on a recommendation. The place was decent but didn't blow me away. Unfortunately, I sat downstairs which has a much different vibe than the upstairs. The views upstairs are great, no views downstairs and the music was a tad loud, which made it challenging to understand and hear my soft-talking waitress. The lunch came with a nice fishy... More

In Lima you will find several good places to eat, but if you want to eat the best seafood this is the place to go. It is not big so you need to call in advance to reserve a table.

I love Francesco, it is of course much better than the one in Miami.. I love the ceviches, tiraditos, conchas a la parmesana etc.... Just pick anything, you won't be disappointed

After many years of success of its first restaurant, overlooking the ocean, Francesco has recently opened its second location in the district of Surco. A much more contemporary environment, with ample bar, lounge and terrace area, the food remains as good as in its first location. Fantastic fresh ceviche, tiradito and carpaccio as well as many seafood infused pasta dishes.... More

We went here some weeks ago. Really tasty food, very recomendable. And the service was fine. However, we didnt got the second floor tables (that's where you get the view). Strangely, other people came later and went upstairs without any trouble. So be careful and try to fight to get a table in the second floor.

Great view, excellent food. Typical Peruvian cuisine, the restaurant is full of locals, families. Amazing atmosphere on Sundays, while traveling it feels good to be surrounding by nice families. Cebiche, tiraditos, sopa, causa, pulpo, conchas a la parmesana, everything is excellent. Don't forget to start with the Francisco Pisco Sour. Enjoy!!! A great address on the Malecon.

Had an excellent ceviche, followed by an octopus tamale, not quite so exciting. Only a few tables have the direct view over the ocean, so try and reserve one of them, otherwise it is just another very good Miraflores restaurant.

After a busy week long conference my business associates and I needed a relaxed Saturday afternoon lunch. We went "Francesco" and had a great meal. The grilled octopus was the best I've ever had. It was fresh, cooked simply, and was served with grilled veggies and sauces. Delicious. We also had the Ceviche Francesco. Again, fresh, white fish in a... More
