I'll admit that I was a first-time visitor to Lima, eager to experience authentic ceviche. In an important sense, my trip to Chez Wong was ripe for disappointment, as expectations were through the roof. A long-time resident of Lima explained that this was truly the prime location for a single ceviche mean. In the end, three words - expectations far... More

Three dishes. The ceviche is really good, the second and third course are fried variations of the same fish used in the ceviche - sole the day I went. The fried dishes are average, what you would eat in any chifa restaurant - taste is not bad but its greasy and not imaginative at all. The place is a garage... More

Six of us made reservations FOUR months ahead of time. The venue is small and spartan - but, yes, there is a restroom with paper and everything is neat and clean. I'm not sure why so many folks mentioned the paper napkins, but they were just fine with us. Folks, we were in Lima - a five hour flight from... More

Heard about this place from some friends, it´s a must do when you go to Lima. Loved the Ceviche, regarded as one of the World´s best Ceviche´s. Here you can see the star of the show at work in the kitchen working away on his wok, Javier Wong.

Yes it is not fancy but I wanted real ingredients! So satisfied until I could not eat anymore!!!!! I will pay the price for a chef of his caliber to cook in front of me! Yummy - highly recommended!

This is an iconic restaurant in Lima Peru. It's in an unassuming part of a middle-class neighborhood and has no markings or advertising outside so you have to ask people around where the restaurant is located and everybody will guide you since everyone knows who he is. Chef Wong has been at this location since 1994 and doesn't plan to... More

Nice cebiche, but nothing special. We came following Tony's recommendation but left completely disappointed. The second course was terrible: a stir fried using canned fruits and mushrooms for 25 USD is a disgust to the industry. Besides, it tasted of pure soy sauce. Would encourage critics to find the actual best cebiche because this one is definitely not. PS. Extremely... More

He's a national treasure in Peru. His apron is embroidered "Embajador de Perú" (Ambassador of Peru). His ceviche is legendary. Chef Javier Wong is Chinese by ancestry but his soul is Peruvian. We had the pleasure to have lunch in the modest restaurant located at his home. He presides over a small dining room of about 10 tables at a... More

I do not understand the complains about the look and feel of the place. It's part of the great charm of this place. I absolutely loved it. It really feels like you are in proper local place and not some hip design posh place like thousand others - here it feels almost like you visited your grandad and he made... More

Cheviche was really worth it... premises are not at all adequate. So it really depends what you are looking for. If you want to have great food and assist a showcooking (or showcutting) of a master of ceviche, just go for it. If you think the price (very high for peruvian standards) will get you also a fancy location and... More
