The location is great and the table setup is spacious and comfortable. Nevertheless, service was slow and the food was good but not great compared with peers. I was underwhelmed by two mainstream dishes, though the menu looked creative and broad. Portions were not particularly large. Prices, very attractive. Overall, a good experience but improvable on several dimensions.

Although the service was good and it had a cool atmosphere. The whole experience was ruined by a uneatable salty octopus, and when we send it back and asked for another one they only scrapped the surface.

We had a nice family lunch of 4. At first I thought the price of juices and chica where steep, but they actually serve a 500 ml jar, which comes down to 2 glasses. The presentation of the food it excellent and they actually came ask us twice if everything was allright ( this isn't custom in Lima .. )

I have been eating at the original Santo Pez on Benavides in Surco for several years - even before it added its second floor - and the restaurant has been consistently good. Its a good place to avoid the gringo crowd and just enjoy very well prepared ceviches and other fish dishes.

There's a wide variety and everything I've had here was always very good and of great quality. I would recommend their tiraditos with a lovely Chilcano !

The food and drinks at Santo Pez have been some of the best that I have experienced so far; the menu is not complicated or full of “weird” dishes and the serving sizes are big enough to be shared with a friend or a relative and having both parties satisfied at the end of their meal. The restaurant is clean... More

Great choice for ceviche in Lima!!! We went to another place that was recommended, but the line was too long. The taxi driver sent us to Santo Pez, we had a great time, over ate and over drank, but great time!

It was the first time i came to this restaurant. We went to the location of Miraflores; we have seen it before, but this time we decided to go inside :) It was almost empty around 12 o'clock. I ordered Tuna Tartare as appetizer, it was so so, we have tasted better ones before. As a main dish, i ordered... More

Yes, I love peruvian sea food, and this is one of the best I have tasted!. They call it "fusion" sea food, I call it "excellent sea food". My niece took me there on my last visit to Lima. From the appetizer to the main course: delicious. I especially loved the fish-stuffed wonton, dipped in "mazamorra morada", which is usually... More
