“Highly recommend!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2014

The food and the service was outstanding! Try their many ceviches, arroz chaufa, conchitas, chicharonnes and papas a la huancaina!

“Strange name, great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

I don´t know how they came on the name the “Good Death”, but this restaurant is a treasure. Poorly located like many of the great cevicherias in Lima but worth the effort to cross Javier Pardo to find it. Plenty of good supervised parking in front and easy access from any direction. Usually we split a cebiche mixto and then each order one of the wonderful baked or fried dishes. The ambience is large and spacious making it a perfect place to have a private business lunch or conversation. The waiters are friendly and attentive and the addition of chifles, fried bananas, with the canchita is a very nice touch.

“Perhaps the best ever cebiches .... plus plus plus”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2011

This has to be one of the most laid back and effortless restaurants that I've visited worlwide. You arrive and ask for a table for 7 ... and if by magic it appears. You seat yourself and goodies arrive plus menus in spanish & english. You start to order and more goodies arrive and so the meal goes on .... but, it's the quality of the food: most places cebiche can blow your taste-buds apart, but here, the cebiche is both created and crafted oh so subtle ... as was the rest of the dishes even better than the one before ....

A great restaurant ... but all the hard surfaces reflect noise .... and the noise knocks its 4.5/5 stars to 3.5 ..... Noise and Comfort don't go together ... but don't let that put you off: The food is superb.
