“Very nice place and great cebiche”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

This place was unique with its noisy environment and crowd. We arrived with no reservation so we had to wait around 30 minutes while drinking some great pisco sours and some "piqueos" at the bar. The food was excellent and service was quick and pleasant. I certainly recommend a visit to this special place.

“Very nice place for a noisy Sunday lunch in Lima”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

The food is very good. Typical cebicheria plates plus amusing inventions by the well known chef Rafael Osterling. The aperitifs (Margarita) was not fantastic and that is a pity. The one problem (depending on the sensitivity of your ears) is the noise: the acoustics are aweful so the place becomes very noisy when crowded. I personaly have a very sensitve ear, but have survived the noise quite well and the quality f the food deserves the effort.
