Great spot for cebiche! One of the best I've ever had! The staff is friendly and the service is good and fast. Not so fancy but the food is great!

We were looking for some good ceviche and pisco sours on our only full day in Lima and were sent to this restaurant. It was a great recommendation-- the choices of ceviche were many and varied and all were excellent. The pisco sours hit the spot! We plan on returning should we ever be in Lima again.

First of all, I was born in the seaport of Callao, where one grows up having Cebiche, because that is the way it is. Thus, we are extremely selective about the quality of same. So, whenever I am in Lima, I make a point to stop in Punta Sal. Adolfo Perret (owner) is an old friend and is good (and... More

My girlfriend and I came here for lunch one afternoon. We'd called ahea to reserve a 3rd floor table by the window, which was great advice. Picture sitting outside, overlooking the ocean, smelling the salt air, dinking a cold beer, and having some of the best ceviche in the city. The staff was very helpful and friendly, and the menu...

Tried Puntal sal several times. Service is not good. Ordered drinks several times with no answer! Fish Carpaccio was good. Parmesan scallops ok. "Chita Frita" Deep fried fish was delicious. Mediocre overall. Hope their service gets better.

Building is perched on a corner of the Malecon overlooking a park and the Pacific Ocean. Staff did their utmost to get us seated despite the large crowd. The 4 rooms are small from the basement to the 3rd floor. Try to get seated by a window. Service was a bit slow, probably due to the number of customers.

Food is awesome, but you will wait awhile. It's Ok, though, because you can watch the hang-gliders and the beach right out of the window.

This was the second restaurant we did in Lima (and Peru, for that matter). Must say I was a bit disappointed with the level of refinement of Lima cuisine. I had a decent meal here: both starter and main were acceptable, but not wow.
