But I love it. This place was filled with locals on a Sunday afternoon. I ordered ceviche and a grilled fish. The waitress assured me just the ceviche would be enough. And with a couple of glasses of wine, it was perfect. And I helped...More

This is a fantastic no-frills restaurant in Barranco. The portions are extremely generous, the quality of the food is great and they have just any Peruvian dish I know on the menu. Services is friendly but spotty.

Was pretty good, of good quality, definitely hit the spot. For a glass of wine and regular portion, which was generous for me, paid 50 soles. Place is cute covered with memorabilia etc. Recommend.

There were a few ceviche restaurants near our hotel - but this one sounded interesting. We walked from Miraflores and found Canta Rana bustling with lunchtime traffic. We had ceviche mixto and also solo pescado. Both were delicious - fresh with great flavor, generous portions....More

I don’t know if reservations are possible. I advice to get there early because it is full during lunch hour.

Legendary cevicheria, football sanctuary in the heart of Barranco, familiar spot, delicaies factory, unforgeatable feasts and eternal toasts scenary. Much more than a cevocheria, a place of pilgrimage in the most bohemian neighbourhood of Lima.
