I highly recommend trying this place. The decor is nothing fancy and it looks very different compared to the other beautiful restaurants that are popping up all over Lima. The food here is delicious. We tried the octopus in olive oil and garlic and the traditional ceviche. These were recommended by the waiter and we were very pleased! We are very adventurous eaters and are big time foodies. Give this place a try if you are in Miraflores. Keep in mind, most cebicherias are only open for LUNCH! This is a really informal type place. The sign said they were open at 12:30pm, but in fact, no one even showed up to open the place up until 1pm. Some people may find this frustrating, however, we found it very charming.

This place is perfect for an informal meal. The service makes you fill like if you were in a friend’s home. The owner receives each customer and he talks to everybody to provide (as he says) the best experience.
The food is delicious. If you go there in a group it is recommended to order an option which you can choose 4 different dishes. And it is highly recommended to order the “mushame de pulpo”. A delicious octopus prepared with olive oil, salt, tomato and avocado. They also have one of the best ceviche in Lima in my opinion.

Great food. First time in Lima, had to check out the ceviche. Great service and superb food! Señor Carlos and his family are great hosts. We arrived and he was closed and still welcomed us in. They even cater for extraterrestrials. Would absolutely recommend it to anybody.

We arrived in Lima on July 27th before Independence day. Lots of places were closed or closing early so we were happy when they said that even though they were closing soon, they would be happy to serve us. When we sat down our table for 5 became a table for 6 as the owner Carlos joined us frequently to chat and explain their food. Carlos explains everything and is so personable he makes this place special.

Here is what makes this place #10 on the list in Lima:

Solid Food (not fancy but Great) + Great Owner + Good Prices + They Care about you.

Warning: Carlos may offer you a free shot or two at the end of the meal. We had 2 for our anniversary. Be carfeul crossing streets if walking to your hotel. - Thanks Carlos!
