Very fresh and tasty Ceviche. Big portions and great quality food. It is not cheap by any standards but worth it.

Big Ben is simply one of the very best places for fish in Huanchaco. My return visit was a big hit and much better experience than previous stop. Nice drink selection and main courses are outstanding. Personally I love the corvina prepared any way. Very good service and you do not feel rushed...so sit back and enjoy Big Ben

Food was nothing special Great view but that basically all it has going for it Ridiculously overpriced Don't bother. Spend 10 soles and get a burger from surfer burger

The food and service rival and exceed many US fine dining establishments. The ceviche is incredible. The Sea Bass is better than any I have had in the US. Must go.

You will never find a ceviche elsewhere that even comes close to how wonderful the Big Ben ceviches are. Looking out over the sea eating fresh ceviche, one of my favourite moments in my life.

I went with my family for holidays and we loved the place. It is located in front of the beach and the view is really nice. We enjoyed the meal and the service was great. The people of the staff are very friendly and helpful. The prices are affordable and I would definitely recommend this restaurant to my friends.

We had a wonderful lunch at Big Ben on New Year's Day. We were a large table (about 20) and we loved everything. I had the ceviche and it was delicious. We sat at a table by the windows giving us a gorgeous view. Big Ben is known for excellent seafood so definitely take advantage of it!
