Delicious food and amazing ocean views. Get a reservation to sit outside by the water (we walked in on a weeknight at 7pm and were fine, but seats filled up soon afterwards). The wine was relatively overpriced compared to other bars and restaurants in Lima (35+ soles per glass), but otherwise the food was incredible and priced accordingly. The restaurant... More

Nestled on the beach between the Miraflores and Barranco, this high-end restaurant offers modern style decor, with top notch service and cuisine. Menu is primarily seafood but they also offer other meats. If you are looking to treat yourself to fine Peruvian cuisine in a classy environment with the sea as background, then this is a very good choice.

I had a business lunch. The food was delicious, quite tasty and good quantity. The location provides a superb view to the ocean. I highly recommend this restaurant.

My parents were in town visiting me here in Lima, Peru for the holidays. We looked for a great spot to have lunch on a beautiful summer day to celebrate Christmas. One of my friends suggested Cala. Thank God! It was an amazing experience! The View is 5 stars!! And the food too! We ordered several plates so we could... More

Cala was highly recommended in three articles we read, so we headed there mid-afternoon today. We were seated at about 3:20 p.m. in the bar at a table just inside the balcony, with a beautiful water view. The hostess left us menus in Spanish and English, and a cocktail/tapas menu. For 20 minutes, we were invisible. Finally someone came, took... More

This is one of the very best restaurants I have ever been to, and I go to a lot of restaurants. The ceviche is awesome, but so is everything else. We went on Christmas Eve and they were one of the few places open in Lima. We could not have asked for better food or service.

Me and my friends were there for dinner, the place is beautiful and the waiter were helpful explaining us the menu and some of the ingredients. They have a good variety of dishes so you can try most of the typical Peruvian dishes. In addition they have delicious desserts. I recommend to get a sit at the balcony so you... More

We were invited to Cala by local friends, so you can assume this is no tourist trap. What we had was a huge array of traditional Peruvian food, no fancy, shmancy, but the real deal, so much that most of the guests were also locals. The location right on the beach is ideal for a nice clear day, I don't... More

The atmosphere was spectacular. We sat on the balcony and the sea rushed underneath us. The coastline and lights of Lima stretched in both directions. The food was delicious. Watch out, we were charged extra for the bread.
