We had an assortment of wonderful soups, beef and seafood. Do not miss this “truly Lima” experience. Make a reservation or enjoy the lively bar while you wait.

Do not expect great service or fancy location. Be ready for long standing before you sit. The menu is just simple. Pick the fish and weigh so they prepare three dishes out of it. You will eat a fantastic food sharing a table with other...More

We like to eat local. The Picanreria seemed the right thing and we were not disappointed. We have chosen for two a 1.2kg half the Chita ( a Peruvian sea bass - white fish) and had it as Ceviche for starter with some sea urchin....More

Excellent food, northern style. You choose your fish and they cook 3 dishes for you. I chose a 2kg Chita for 4 people. It was enough food. I chose a ceviche, a garlic preparation and a soup. The place is very small and doesn’t take...More

This place is unique. Your experience starts choosing the fish, then you have to select several ways of getting the most of it. Cebiche, Soup, Grilled were our selections, and I regret nothing, just wonderful.

Simply put, one of the best meals I've ever had. You choose your fish by weight and have the chefs prepare it 3 ways. For a couple, 800-900g is more than enough to leave feeling a bit guilty for how much you've consumed. The standard...More

I have visited La Picanteria in several occasions, with different groups of people. It was funny the first time and although nothing has changed, it is not funny anymore. Waiting two hours (if not longer) for a table is common, but doing it at an...More
