After spending a day walking throughout Miraflores and central Lima, my friend and I wanted great food, an unfussy and authentic atmosphere: essentially a non tourist trap. We found it here. We tried 4 dishes and they were all fantastic. Our waiter seemed to delight in making suggestions. I loved the tiled floor, the posters in the wall, and the neighborhood.

Fantastic ceviche with just the right amount of spice and citrus. Calamari ceviche was tender and flavorful. Also had yucca fries with perfect crisp and tasty dipping sauce - not greasy. Great decor in a nice space. Attentive and friendly wait staff, even during a busy New Years day lunch rush. Great value and highly recommend!

For ceviche, parihuela de mariscos and all the other seafood delicacies go there. Service is friendly but not too speedy, the atmosphere inside great, the prices quality - food absolutely matching and it is right in the heart of Barranco!So, bit to be missed and from the fish much better than some overprized fancy restaurant in Miraflores!

Ate here twice during our stay in Barranco. It's located right behind Metro market on the corner but we missed it the first time because the street wasn't clearly marked Genova. Someone from the restaurant actually came out and got us when he saw us walking around like lost tourists! Huge menu so there was no way to try everything. Love the spaghetti dishes and the mix cebiche. Great service and a very cool laid back atmosphere mixed with locals and some tourists.
