We were recommended this place by our tour guide, but must have gone on an OFF night. Had two sharing plates, but neither was very interesting, the scallops in cheese sauce were quite dry and not a lot of taste. The service was terrible and it seemed they did not have enough staff. The waiter was rude and abrupt as... More

When we asked for restaurant suggestions from our hotel, they told us about this place and said we would be given free pisco sours (1 each.) Also were told it was only "2-3 blocks" but it was way farther. So I feel we were steered there. The restaurant asked if we had the free drink certs., obviously expecting this deal... More

we got 2 small free drinks and we had an appetizer and an entree that we split. The food and service were both good. The location was very convenient.

Spent around 120 soles for the 2 of us and enjoyed a decent pisco sour and a selection of tiradito, ceviche, braised octopus, causa, and a few other less memorable items. The staff was attentive and the atmosphere was nice and reasonably quiet (given its size).

We came here for a very late lunch after going on a walking tour of Miraflores. The food was really nice and would recommend the vegetarian lasagna.

Just last week a ravenous group of five of us had a day to spend in Lima. We got a recommendation for Alfresco in Miraflores, and decided to give it a try. What a find. This is top-notch Peruvian cuisine, with ceviche and braised octopus, risotto, pastas, large salads, delicious seafood entrees of all kinds, in a pretty place in... More

This place was recommended to me by an american lady we met at the Inca Trail and I'm so glad we went there! Exceptional ceviche and a very nice place to spend an evening at. Highly recommended!

After a day of site-seeing we stopped here for late lunch/early dinner. The ceviche was an excellent selection of fish. Next we had the tuna - done expertly, coconut sauce complemented the dish without overpowering it. Service was attentive and spoke English. Wine selection was good.

We had black oyster and tri color civiche. Both dishes recommended by the waiter who spoke English well. My oh my this was delicate and very delicious. Following this we had the grill platter of fish. Everything was beautifully cooked and tender. Flavours were great throughout and to top it all off , for 2 of us without alcohol or... More

Had too many sashimi in a Japanese restaurant. First time I tried Peruvian raw fish. Really exceptional. The sauce is important. Service is excellent. The catch of the day was also very good. They even gave us free welcome drinks because our hotel booked out table for us.

Thank Tcicccec
