Great sea food. Ceviche was dreamy. Chocharron de pescado fantastic, but the sushi cevichado possibly the best we had. Service is frienfly and swift. Location extraordinary. We enjoyed the balcony at the first floor. I can imagine this place getting crowded in the summer afternoons. I'd certainly come back

We sat out on the deck and listened to the waves crash while enjoying a beautiful meal. Calamari was great! I had a seasonal scallop risotto (so good) and hubs had sea bass. The wine selection was good as well. The only bad thing is they charged a cover charge (S/18) which we didn't really understand what that was about.

First, the restaurant overlooks the ocean and is beautiful. We were able to get a reservation for 6:30 on a Saturday. I had the Amazon fish paiche and my girlfriend had a seafood and rice mix. Both dishes were amazing. Our waitress was great giving us attentive service but also letting us talk. It was my girlfriends birthday and she... More

Went to Cala on a food tour. Lovely atmosphere with stunning views directly on the ocean. You can sit outside above the crashing waves and feel the breeze. We had great Pisco Sours! I truly wish we could have come back for dinner. The menu looks delicious. In the bathroom with the windows open above each toilet you can hear... More

I was extremely impressed by this restaurant across the board. The food was amazing, the crowd was hip, great drinks and unbeatable location right on the water. This place is where the locals go for great ceviche. A real gem not to be missed.

We came here for a late lunch after exploring Lima. Ceviche here is fantastic! The restaurant is one of the few located right on the Pacific so the views are also incredible. This is as ocean to table as it gets. At night the place turns into a hopping bar scene but I can't speak to that. I will say,... More

If you want to enjoy a good Peruvian meal looking at the Pacific Ocean, there is no better place than Cala. Experienced Alfredo Aramburu has build a modern, spacious Restaurant right at the pebble beach with a great view. Service is friendly, with Peruvian modern and traditional dishes, mostly fish. They also have a comfortable lounge in the first floor... More
