We arrived around 2:15 and had about a 30 minute wait for a table. While we were waiting the hostess ordered our drinks for us. It is a lively place that seemed to have a equal mix of tourists and locals. We order the traditional causas to start which were delicious and beautifully presented. I had the classico ceviche made with sole for my main course. It was very good. My boyfriend had one of the platters which consisted of a mixto ceviche, calamari and a seafood causa. The calamari was the best I've ever had!

The service and location is amazing. The presentation of food is wonderful. We all enjoyed the arroz with mariscos, ceviche and the other things we ordered. They were very thoughtful when it came to the kids taking their order early and making sure they had plenty of yummy chips. We would definitely go again.

Ok atrocious title. Great service, fab fresh fish
Our first lunch in Lima later on the day we arrived.. Its reputation is well deserved. We ate the La Mar special ceviche trio, folowed by a mixed seafood wok dish. Portions are generous.
The chifles of plantain and various potatoes plus mild pepper sauces and local corn are standard for the tables. Ceviche was simply outstanding. Learnt that turning up at 2:30pm on a Monday afternoon and expecting the place to be half empty was quite shockingly wrong. The place was a mass of local businessmen tourists and families enjoying the amazing cuisine.

As we travel every year to Peru, we have our list of favourite restaurants that we revisit each time. La Mar is one of them and we are happy to see that it has maintained the quality of food and service over tie, unlike other places that we used to love (ex:Tanta). Since they have a no reservation policy, you usually have to wait in line until you get a table. The wait is usually very pleasant, as you can sit at the bar and have some delicious appetizers and drinks. This time we arrived around 2pm and we got seated right away.
La Mar is one of our go to places whenever our foreign friends come to visit. We order the assorted cebiches, the colourful mix of causitas on a boat, choritos a la chalaca, pulpo 2 olivas, makis crocante and the succes is assured. This time we ordered the cebiche mixto, tiradito Gaston, calamares y pulpo en salsa anticuchera and they were also delicious. We finished with the crunchy picarones which is a must for any newcomer. The cocktails are good too and the ladies might discover new exotic favorites in the Cholopolitan, Chicha punch, Canita al aire or any of the virgin alternatives.
