I was recommended by the bell hop at my hotel to try the ceviche and I am glad I did. The restaurant was nicely busy and the meal exceeded my expectations. My waiter was quite helpful in explaining some of the other dishes but didn't push me as he could tell I was on a mission to try the national... More

We had amazing Seafood at Alfresco. Briljant taste and lots of vegies. Wines per botlle are a little expensive. Service is extremely good.

We ate ceviche, Lima's local specialty. Although we are no ceviche experts at all, we really enjoyed the (sea)food in combination with a local beer. Staff could be a bit more attentive. Prices are reasonable.

I came to Alfresco with people from my office, and all in all it's a great place to dive into Peruvian food. The restaurant has both indoor, and patio seating, offering a nice but tight environment. But lets talk food. This is not the best Peruvian food you will have, but it is an excellent place to dive into the... More

Our taxi driver recommended this restaurant and it was spot on. We were talked into having causa. The description of stuffed mashed potato was not very appetising but it was absolutely delicious with avocado and prawn. The service was excellent all in all an excellent experience.

I will start with positive like fast and great service. If this is the only restaurant you try in Lima it will be great but I eaten in several other restaurants in vicinity and we had bigger selection, bigger portions, less expensive and more fun. Average and expensive describes well this place.

We were inaugurated to our first pisco sour at Alfresco and that has set the standard for us. The grilled octopus is the best, so tender. This is our second visit to Lima and we have always gone back to Alfresco.

We found this restaurant thru Tripadvisor. It is 5 minutes from our hotel. Dinner was so good, we came back for lunch a few days later. And lunch was even better. Highly recommended for local seafood - delicious and uncommon dishes.
