When both the taxi driver and the hotel concierge recommend a restaurant, where city tour buses pull up outside, my suspicious instincts kick in. Nonetheless, Alfresco delivers a very decent feed at not unreasonable prices with quite acceptable, friendly and informative service in an agreeable environment. No modern "chef-fy nonsense" (the joint has been going about 25 years and I... More

After tasting the fresh A1, prepare for the main course, this moment would be your moment above the clouds. Recommendation Squid Ink Risotto. A3: Pisco, Pisco, Pisco.

Have just got back from a great night out at this hotel. It was recommended to us by a driver that we used whilst in Lima. He was not wrong! It was fantastic. Great staff and wonderful traditional food. Good location walking distance 10 mins from the Marriott Hotel Miraflores where we were staying. Recommend to all.

We were excited to try Alfresco based on a recommendation. The location and dining room are beautiful, and our initial interaction with the hostess was pleasant. It took a while to get a waiter to come over, and once we did even a few menu questions seemed to exasperate him. We finally were able to order our food, and once... More

For Lunch, my travel companion and I were referred to Alfresco for ceviche and a wide seafood menu. The walk to the restaurant in the Miraflores area was enjoyable and we were greeted by a friendly staff who brought us pisco sours to start. I ordered the octopus ceviche as a starter, a delicious combination of tender thin octopus and... More

Wonderful fresh fish. Fabulous service. All in all the perfect place for lunch followed by walk along the Pacific Coast. A Lima high light.

This restaurant was highly recommended by the concierge of the hotel in which I stayed and it was just OK. The prices were about average but the food flavor was nothing to write home about. The service was also a bit lackluster. I didn't get the feeling of, "We're glad you are here," but rather, "OK, so, what do you... More

We went too Alfresco as was so highly rated. Very disappointed. The things we chose were not available, service hap hazard and wrong dish arrived probably due to misunderstandings in translations. Probably just an unlucky night for us.

A short enjoyable walk from the Hotel Jose Antonio and highly recommended this restaurant did not disappoint. They were sensitive to our likes and dislikes and their recommendations were superb. The quality of the food and service was exceptional.
