The second floor dining room looks out on the Malecon and the Pacific Ocean. This place has excellent ceviche and tiradito. The seafood is fresh and well presented. The service is good, but not great.

Just go there if you want to experience the real peruvian ceviche. Fish was fresh and the way they prepare it is just something worth trying,

I must say they prepare the best Ceviche in Lima, you have to tell the waitress if you want it spicy, medium or no spicy. They always serve a small bowl of bisque which is really good, with a little bit of lemon. You must start sharing a ceviche with your partner, the second time you go there , you... More

With my wife and another couple went for lunch to this place. We made reservations the same day and got a table on the second floor with the ocean view. We had the Tiradito Francesco, traditional ceviche, causa de cangrejo and a couple of other piqueos that we shared. Everything tasted as expected. We also had pisco sours that were... More

Came here on a recommendation. The place was decent but didn't blow me away. Unfortunately, I sat downstairs which has a much different vibe than the upstairs. The views upstairs are great, no views downstairs and the music was a tad loud, which made it challenging to understand and hear my soft-talking waitress. The lunch came with a nice fishy... More

In Lima you will find several good places to eat, but if you want to eat the best seafood this is the place to go. It is not big so you need to call in advance to reserve a table.
