Despite the reservation, we were seated in a bad location. The waiter was quite rude and the quality of food was not as good as other peruvian restaurants.

Great restaurant to taste the best of Peruvian traditional food! Excellent ceviche! And the best Pisco Sour I've ever had! Recommend it 100% for lunch, didn't see it by night but for lunch it was very nice.

We went there with a big group. Attendants didn't remember orders, we had to ordered twice some things we wanted (wine, water). Food is medium, didn't find so good as people said.

We visited it with a local that strongly recommend it. Works were taking place when we visited so the space was smaller than normal (I guess) but no noise or nuisance at all. We had ceviche two ways, extremely delicious, as starter and then the three mean courses were grilled octopus, Seabass a lo macho (shrimps and squid with a... More

This is a highly rated seafood restaurant with an interesting and funny name referring to the seven capital sins but in Spanish fish sound very similar to sin, so the logo has seven different fish to represent the seven capital sins. Most definitely gluttony he will be the one best represented. It's a great seafood restaurant that prepares traditional Peruvian... More

I remember my first time in this place, I had a great meal. Tiraditos and ceviches are the specialties to not bypass! But when I went back this month, something was disappointing. First I think the renovations changed the place, which wasn't as welcoming as before. Then... Am not sure. It is still a very good place, simple, tasty to... More

Overall, the food in Lima was fantastic but this was one of the stand out restaurants. Excellent ceviche and octopus appetizer as well as a great fish (Chita) main course. The service was excellent and the setting nice but relaxed. Highly recommended.

Normally, I don´t give Peru high marks in Desserts, but this restaurant gave an all round experience. Their grilled Octopus was outstanding as well as the Amazon river fish, Paiche, which is a huge fish. I ordered the desserts as a habit and the Lucuma (local fruit) mousse was excellently well presented and just perfect in the flavour combinations

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.
