We are first time visitors to Lima. Our hotel concierge offered us recommendations to seafood restaurants that appeared to be in the tourist trap category rather than something representative of an authentic Lima dining experience. So we turned to Tripadvisor for recommendations in the Miraflores neighborhood we were visiting and Costazul appeared at the very top of the list.
The whole experience was terrific, with owner Carlos and his son proving to be excellent hosts and guides through their fresh, simple seafood menu. We went with their recommendations and were very pleased. The octopus mushame, a house specialty, was a highlight, as were the ceviches and grilled sea bass dishes we tried. The pisco sours were also top notch. All told, it was an experience that was about (great) food but also about exceptional personal hospitality that made for a memorable dining experience. Be aware that only cash payments are accepted, in soles and USD.
