Excellent fish and sea food. We went for lunch and had 5 appetizers and 5 main courses. ALL plates were excellent. The service was also outstanding. Everyone we asked about a certain plate knew every detail of it. They asked if anyone was allergic. One of us was allergic to shellfish, so they recommended plates which they knew 100% had nothing related to shellfish (they even took into account that oyster sauce is used on certain plates as a condiment).
The restaurant is not located in the nicest part of Miraflores, but I really don't care since I am mostly interested in good food and then service. It is not the cheapest restaurant but price is relative to the quality and portions served.
This restaurant is definitely worth going.
Recommendations: Templanza (The tuna tiraditos) were spectacular. Both cebiche Gandhi and capital 3 x 3 were really good. For main plates the pescado rockefeller

Hard to beat fresh seafood. I had grilled paiche as my main course with pulpo risotto that was outstanding.

How I loved this place!
Not only the ceviche is amazing, but they also have plenty of vegetarian options, which is not very common in other similar restaurants.
Try the Peruvian Pisco Sour, and don't forget the ceviche: big chunks of fish, lime juice, a touch of rocoto an onion. YUM. This is what ceviche is supposed to taste like.
Desserts were also great.
Although more expensive than other restaurants we went to, the difference it's totally worth it. No matter how much they tell you to choose a different one based only on the price, don't do it. If you travel to Lima, this is a must. You won't regret it.

We were in lima for three and a half days and ate here four times. We went to Paracas and came back in the morning so we could eat here one more time before flying out. The Tiraditos and Ceviches are out of this world and we (our full family of Bolivians and Gringos, plus grandpa and child of four) never managed to get past them, to experience the rest of the menu. The Pisco Sour and White Wines set you out in a good vacation mood an so does the chic, beachy decor and nice happy diverse crowd. Loooooove this place!
