This restaurant was booked by our tour guide to end our city tour. He left us in the hands of the staff after enjoying a Pisco Sour with us. We ordered food and drinks including 2 bottles of water. When the Waiter arrived back with the drinks we spotted that he'd brought 2 bottles of Voss. I immediately asked him... More

This was an experience.... the food was quite average. The fish was a real disappointment as the main market is essentially a fish market. I expected better although I had read about the many people disappointed with this place. Wifi was impossible to access. Service was OK but not great. The Pisco Sours were excellent.

My wife and I had a bad experience in this restaurant. Waitress did not care to understand another language than spanish. The main food was cold and when I payed the bill, the change was wrong.

Went to El Galeon on advice from someone else. I had a great seafood dish with a glass of wine that was ok.

You are pulled in by pushers. The restaurant looks ok and seems clean. The reason for the low rating is that the fish one orders is not the fish being served. P.e. The ceviche ordered as 'sea bass' only was served with what seems an inferior species. Similarly the sole classico ordered came of a species which definitely was NOT... More

We had a very quick stop for lunch as we were getting close to start our wine tour. The staff was very pleasant and accommodating and my husband loved his Arroz Pacifico, which was sort like a seafood risotto. I had a seafood combination sauteed in a garlic sauce, which was just ok. The shrimps were the size of my... More

This restaurant is located at Mercado Central together with many other restaurants. It offers air conditioning and a decent bathroom, two important features in the location. Restaurants offer similar food at similar price, overpriced. Free pisco sour (up to two per person) and large servings add to its advantage. Good ceviches and "centolla", one orlder serves two

It's a good clean spot for a serviceable lunch. It probably won't blow you away but it'll fill a hole while you wait for lunch!

My wife and I were taken to El Galeon by our tour guide as part of a city tour. We ate from a set menu and our guide seemed to know many of the staff, so I think that worked to our benefit based on reading some of the other reviews. The mixed seafood platter was great and the wine... More
