The food here was incredible! It took awhile to get it and I had to ask to order but the end result was so good I didn't care. I had seafood on the grill with garlic sauce and it was just fantastic. Not a good choice if you're in a hurry but this is a place to savor and enjoy!

We were recommended this restaurant and weren't disappointed. They specialise in seafood & barbecue. The wine list is great and the service was impeccable. Our waiter was English speaking and offered to explain the menu for us. Wine was also delicious. Best dining experience in South America so far.

Owner is a nice guy. The streetside grills are entertaining. The game of ushering in new customers entertaining to watch. Peru has much tastier potato fries. Side salad was not interesting. Can improve the overal food experience with simpler and better compliments to the delicious grilled fish and meat. Grilled vegetables for everyone and tastier french fries maybe?

I almost went for fish, seems a waste but my Spanish doesn't extend to "do you also cook meat on that barbecue". Probably. The omelette was awesome tho, and cost less than I'd have paid for a crap one in Lima this morning. Would definitely eat here again.

I ordered shrimp dish and paid S45. It's not worth at all. Better try other options along the beach at S15 incl ceviche and drink.

Great restaurant where they make the fish right in front of you on the barbecue. We shared a fish of 1 kg and shared it with two, it was the best fish i had in Peru.

My boyfriend and I were at La Esquina in April, on a weeknight. We asked if we could share a whole grilled fish to which the waiter responded that we had the option of getting the smallest one for 80 Soles, a medium for 90 or a big one for 100 Soles. He also pointed out, that the smallest one... More
