When you ever have the possibility to visit Peru, please visit Pescados Capitales I never eat in a better fish restaurant than this.

Interestingly decorated and open air ambiance, with a low sound level, that allows you to talk freely enjoying the freshest fish ceviches and hot dishes with fantastic Pisco Sours. A businessman's lunch and watering hole. Pescado Capitales will surely meet and exceed your expectations.

To be totally honest, I'm not sure why this is my second choice after el Mercado, love the food, service could improve, but there is something about the restaurant that doesn't make it my 1st choice Maybe the menu that haven't change at all for the past decade Don't take me wrong, great pisco sour and great cebiches tres sabores

Superb quality and flavour, ceviche is a must have, fresh and tender. Service is great and the kind of outside dining is really enjoyable. Crowded at lunch time get there early noon.

The restaurant was recommended to me as one of the best restaurants serving ceviche in Lima. It's true. Tuna ceviche and pisco sour were great! Fancy menu, fast and courteous service as well. Enjoy the hospitality and friendly atmosphere instead of using free wi-fi.

We came on the recommendation of a friend and sure it was worth it. The flavor of everything!!! I felt like that "Ratatouille" movie while trying things. Octopus, calamari, shrimp, scallops tasted like I never had them before, really! We had a shrimp starter, then the "Lujuria" fettuccine and "Soberbia" Risotto. Cool thing they name plates after the seven capital... More

The menu is fun with catchy phrases and fun descriptions. The place is mostly outdoor but they have heaters by the tables if you feel cool so you can enjoy dining experience. All the food from my party was nicely presented and very delicious, they have some interesting mix of ingredients and new twist to typical dishes. my only bad... 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.
