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!

New Paths Expeditions trip to Peru over New Years was amazing with our Expedition Leader, Jorge Salas. One of the highlights was the cooking class and lunch at Big Ben Huanchaco afer our visit to Chan Chan. On the second floor open terrace, we were greeted with a Pisco Sour and smiles. We first learned how to prepare Causa, then... More

Yes, the balcony setting is beautiful, the service excellent, the food delicious. However, after trying many restos in Huanchaco we don't seek out Big Bens because we feel the high-end prices are just not quite worth the outlay. The best thing about this place is you can always rely on a delicious cold pisco sour, cleanliness and a beautiful view.... More

Over the last 4 years I have had the pleasure of dining at Big Ben's no less than a dozen times and have never been disappointed. The ceviche is amazing and the drinks are perfect for a wrap up of a busy day. Great location for couples of business groups.

Lovely restaurant, well located by the beach, with out-door dining. The food was amazing, best ceviche dishes I have eaten in Peru so far!! And the Pisco Sour was very nice too :) I definitely recommend this restaurant if you're in the area....

We went around four thirty, just before they closed, to take advantage of the sunset view and man did it deliver. I had the causas and my boyfriend had the ceviche. Both were just to die for. The double pisco sours were delicous as well and only one was needed! So great. You have to go when you are in... More

Big Ben in Huanchaco is a bit pricey compared to the majority of the restaurants in the town, but it is worth every penny. Had the ceviche and calamari, as well as the seafood causas. Both were incredible. Also, they make the absolute best pisco sours.
