The restaurant had a great vibe, drinks were delicious, and the menu had a huge variety of both ceviches and cooked dishes. The food was absolutely delicious- fresh, tasty, high quality.

This restaurant must have been excellent in the past, as it has a a good reputation. The food was good, but not great. And, it was pricey for the quality received.

We went thinking it was one of the best restaurants in Lima but we had better ceviche at cheaper places. Too expensive for what you get.

We went for lunch and had a good time, the dishes are average and the fish very good. The service is good. Prices are not cheap at all, but many good restaurants in Lima have rised their prices to international levels.

All dishes are well above average. Rather friendly staff, quick delivery from the kitchen. Big restaurant with the good and bad of its size. Descent food and nice wine list. Kind of expensive for what they offer, as most of the restaurants in Lima.

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

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.
