A brilliant informal restaurant, the calamares are special, the pisco sours fantastic and the rest is wonderful. Try the Lucuma pudding. I cannot rate this restaurant high enough. Not pretentious, just excellent

This spot is on the more expensive side, definitely designed for foreigners, but you get a wide range of good options of traditional Peruvian cuisine like arroz chaufa, ceviche, pisco, and others.

This menu has an art for their descriptive selections. If you want the freshest fish done Peruvian style this is the place! Start with one of the most delectable Ceviches as your cold dish. Then the grilled Polpo / Octopus is so tender it's simply to die for. Then the mains so many delectable selections you can't go wrong with... More

This is one of the better fish restaurants in Lima. Everything is delicious. Unfortunately they changed the design of the restaurant. In former times everything had been really stylish and cosy, now the Restaurant is loud and like a normal and simple beach cevicheria. They said that they are modernizing, In hope they get back to their old style. For... More

Very good Cebiche, or Ceviche (not sure, as it is spelled both ways in Lima) and Pisco Sours. Even though it is being remodeled, it's still a great place to go.

The restaurant is nic and clean and we really like the astmosphere. Food tasted really good especially Ceviche. We tried Ceviche at other restaurants but nothing comparable to this. I would love to go back again.

If you like seafood, that´s the place to go. You will find a great variety of seafood, each one better than the other. From a fresh "Ceviche" to a rare Tuna Steak.

I have been going to Pescados Capitales for years. Prices have always been on the high side but on this visit they have gone sky high. Might as well be eating in the USA at these prices. Food is good but not worth the price increase. Meal for two with appetizer and main coarse no alcohol will cost you $100... More

When we arrived, they didn't seem to have our reservation, but sat us without any concerns (because the restaurant was essentially empty). It is somewhat of an indoor/outdoor experience. It is very, very casual inside. Overall, the food was average at best and the service was about the same. By the time we got desert, we just decided to head... More

There are close to 2,000 cevicherias in Lima, but this one offers the best food in a great environment. Stop by at lunch and see why they have the best ceviches in town.
