Enjoyed our lunch with the wonderful staff. Our first waiter didn't speak English. He got another waiter and we communicated nicely. They have an English menu, you'll need to just ask. We had pasta with scrimp and seafood melody. Our wine was a bottle of Peru wine and was very good.

Based on the quality food we have eaten in peru, this place provides an extensive menu yet it wasn't up to participate with what we have had elsewhere. Don't get me wrong, it was tasty. However, the price vs value wasn't really there. Pricey ceviches, even pricier main dishes. Overall the decor is somewhat basic, which doesn't go with the... More

A great restaurant on a residential street. I suggest the three mini-causa appetizer with shrimp, fish, and octopus. The chef's special is always good and the full bar makes great cocktails and drinks.

We could not say more positive things about how delicious the food here was!! We ordered from the chefs special menu and have craved these meals again ever sense. The location isn't far from downtown Miraflores and there aren't many tourists there. We loved it!

El Pez Amigo, located in La Paz Av. in the residential area in Miraflores, is a good place to visit. It’s not a touristic place but some foreigners drop by to eat traditional Peruvian seafood. It’s a small informal restaurant with a great variety of seafood. I have been there recently and I really like that place, you feel at... More

While visiting from the US, we found this restaurant via TripAdvisor by searching for ceviche in Lima. The reviews were great so we tried it. It lived up to the reviews. The ceviche mixto was terrific. We also tried the grilled octopus and it, too, was wonderful. We really enjoyed the staff - although only one waiter spoke English -... More

Nice restaurant and excellent food. If you want to experience a great ceviche you have to visit this place. Prices are right and service is friendly. Mondays are closed and open only from 12 to 5pm.
