Didn't have a good experience last time I went. There were about 10 waiters but none of them took our order so after 10 minutes of waiters passing our table we had to call one to ask him to take our order. When we thought we were going to gave our food about half an hour passed and nothing. It took more than 30 minutes to have our food at the table despite us asking for it many times, It was not a busy time. Many people who came at the same time as us have already gone and others who arrived after us were already eating. In a city where it is easy to find good quality and delicious food almost everywhere what makes the difference (in my opinion) is the service and the experience. Having said that I hope the owner reads this to fix this kind of 'mistake' that really makes a difference. I don't think I will get back.

Amazing ceviche, delicious pisco shower, guacamole, excellent staff. The pulpo was perfectly cooked. Just the concitas had a lot of Parmesan, a bit heavy. Otherwise a must!

Warning: this restaurant is not for people on a budget but...... if you are looking for one of the best gastronomic experieces in Perú. Come to Pescados Capitales and order a classic ceviche and lomo saltado.
Pd.: For dessert go to your nearest Chili’s, your welcome

An esteemed member of the Lima gourmet food scene, Pescados takes seafood to a new level. Every dish, especially the octopus, was very thoughtfully prepared and the taste was sublime. A must visit for a seafood aficionado.

I loved this restaurant. I went with my friend who lives in Lima to meet him during his business day. I got there and it was packed with local Lima professionals. The environment was so fresh I thought I was in San Francisco or Los Angels, not South America, Our food was amazing. Amazing flavors and very clean food. Even though we were only two people, we order a lot and everything was really fabulous. Lima is know for its excellent dinning options and this does not disappoint.
