As I am in Peru for work for a week and a half, I am a foodie and one who has now been to Peru several times. As such, I feel I have experienced and dined at some of Peru's greatest restaurants. However, a foodie also knows that the first time should most likely be the last time you go... More

Excellent food. Best 'Ceviche' I ever had. Tuna in pisco was delicious. Staff very friendly and helpful. However.... I would strongly recommend NOT to have the Cala staff on the parking lot to arrange for a taxi. They rip you off...

Had lunch here. Needed halal food, the selection of vegetarian and seafood here is good. Am a small eater, so portions are pretty generous (or maybe it is normal for Latin Americans) - so had to share. Superb view and great lunch makes a good combo.

A little bit out of my way, but I made it to this restaurant which has awesome views. Loved the Cala ceviche & pisco sour. Soaked up the sun, and loved the breeze in an outdoor seat.

This was out first dinner in Lima, and looking back it was one of the better ones. Nice setting right on the water with high quality food. Definitely worth checking out.

This is one of the places that upper crust Limenos go to meat friends for a drink. You can look out on the ocean and if the mood is there the food is good too. Funny, three different people wanted to invite us so we just joined them all up.

Excellent Ceviche! The House Ceviche as well as it's speciality Ceviches are absolutely fantastic. The grilled fish (Catch of the day), is grilled to perfection.

Nice location by the sea, good atmosphere and very good food. Try the Coca and the Maracuya Piscos and enjoy some fresh seafood. Looking forward to go back.
