This place was amazing. The Ceviche mix platter was great, all kinds were delicious. Everything we ate was great and the prices were reasonable.

Again another restaurant that we visited in the hunt for a Geocache on our Honeymoon to Peru. The setting is lovely and the service is Excellent. I have the Ravioli which was ok, but hubby couldn't speak more highly of the mushroom fetticini.

This restaurant was suggested to my business college and I by our driver. It's within walking distance from most of the hotels in the Miraflores area and has some to die for food. If was not the cheapest place we've been, but did offer some of the best tasting food. Staff is fully bilingual and very friendly/helpful. Will be going... More

Went for lunch and got free pisco's from our hotel and enjoyed a lovely ceviche lunch! It was reasonably priced for the area and the quality of food.

Have been going to Alfresco since it opened almost 20 years ago in San Isidro. Their new location in Miraflores is in an old Spanish house and close to the main commercial area in Miraflores and the ocean. Alfresco has never disappointed. The service and food are outstanding. It remains one of our favorites for good seafood, pastas and grains.

Best ceviche we had in Lima, but also the most expensive! This restaurant was recommended by our hotel after we enjoyed a meal the previous day at Punta Azul (a similar but busier eatery). We ordered the traditional and mixed ceviche (1 for each person) for lunch, and greatly enjoyed both - it was fresh with generous portions, and attractively... More

We were recommended this restaurant by the staff at our hotel and we were not disappointed. We were also given a voucher for 2 free Pisco sours and they were very tasty! The staff spoke very good english and were friendly. The seafood was delicious. We shared the ceviche to start and the portion size for 2 people was good.... More

We had found this restaurant by chance in 2013 and had the octopus dish that set the bar for all the following octopus dishes that I would eat from then on. I looked far and wide in Greece, Italy, U.S., everywhere for a dish that would match it and have been disappointed since. This year I returned to Lima and... More

Everything we ordered was fantastic! The server was a bit condescending, but that was on us for not brushing up on our Spanish before we went.
