Wanted to go to Punta Anzul but it was a Monday and was closed so a few doors away stopped into El Pez On. The ceviche with seafood Fish, shrimp, squid & octopus in the usual Tigers Milk was excellent. My first go at ceviche and won't forget it. Even with 13 in our group service was good. All were...

Food was "ok". Service was very slow. The place looks really nice and modern but the place was empty.

We have eaten here for lunch and dinner the past 3 limes we visited Lima. They have really good food and reasonable prices. The atmosphere of the restaurant is also attractive. It's a nice place to relax and have a beer and a meal.

Despite the decent reviews, our service was very slow. One guy was the bar tender, our server and taking inventory of beer. My friends pasta was cold in the middle and my tuna was REALLY fishy. Unfortunately I won't be back or recommend this place to anyone. Especially since there are so many other amazing restaurants in the area.

This restaurant bills itself as the best restaurant in Miraflores, but that would set a very low standard. The restaurant is noisy and does not have a pleasant atmosphere. Nor do the waiters seem to be very anxious to serve you. The first one disappeared miraculously. I started the meal with a Peruvian ceviche which was tasty and good. But... More

This restaurant is just down the street from the more famous punto azul. However personally I prefer it. The portions aren't as big but more thought has been put into the flavours. It's traditional Peruvian with a bit of style. Skip the wait at punto azul and come here instead.

We were looking for a nice local place for lunch, eschewing the easy hotel restaurant choice. My friend found this on trip advisor, saying it got a good review. We weren't disappointed. We sat on the outside deck, which had a nice atmosphere. We all ordered some "chifa" dishes, which is a fusion of Cantonese and traditional Peruvian cuisine. The... More

El Pez On specialises in classic fish dishes and delivers the most amazing ceviches and causas. The fish stew is also first class and the waiting staff could not be more attentive.
