There was around a 45 minute wait when we initially walked up (they don't take reservations), so we popped into Carmen next door for a drink. They notified us by whatsapp when our table was ready, so it was all pretty efficient. It was well...More

First things first - you're all but guaranteed a long wait for a table here. We waited around 30 minutes for an outdoor table in the early afternoon. The food we ordered (a spicy prawn starter dish, a ceviche and a main with king prawns)...More

This place does not take reservations and thanks to Anthony Bourdain putting it on the map some time ago it now has people lining up and waiting for an hour or more for a table, inside or out. Ceviche was good, the crab claws also...More

Nice Ceviche but overpriced. I was sitten at the bar so could see how everything is pre-prepared... drinks, ceviches,... I have to say the food is good but not as great as expected. I ate better ceviches from street vendors at much more reasonable price....More

Yes, come visit this restaurant for ceviche and the mixed grill. Plan accordingly because there will be a wait. There are great spots near by to visit during your wait time.
