Kind of noisy, but with good service, really nice and well presented dishes. A big variety of seafood for all tastes, either for those of plain food lovers or for more complicated ones. The wine cellar is also good. Its a recommended place while in Lima.

Lima is the kingdom of the ceviche, and this restaurant proves it. We tried 3 different ceviches and all of the were delicious, the other plates disappointed me a bit, but the ceviche is really worth the place. Not that expensive and it is a nice place, with a satisfying service.

Tried the "Ceviche Capitale," which contains three different kinds of fish — absolutely delicious! The good versus evil-themed menu is amusing. One drawback: the place next door was under construction when we visited and the hammering and drilling sounds were a bit intrusive.

This place started the innovation in sea food. Try the calamari in anticucho sauce or the ceviche ghandi. Tastes that you will never forget.

Very nice place packed for lunch with one of the best Cebiche we had while touring Peru. Service a bit long at first but always sweet. Try the Peruvian Sauvignon as it is affordable and great for lunch

I found a nice fish dishes alternative and with good suggestions on the daily fish arrivals. Kind place, good service and well emplacement in the economical city center. A place to visit and check Peruvian fusion meals.

If you love sushi, you should love the ceviche here. Dozens of varieties, and everything we had was really good. The place is very new and clean.

Went there for business lunch, tasty peruvian food, simple and sophisticated at the same time. Absolutely above average of Lima restaurants, You can also enjoy some art galleries nearby.

We were here 7 years ago and loved it. Back then good attentive service, and good value for very good food. This time the food was good - not great but the prices were ridiculously high. The worst part was the service. Bringing us the wrong dinner...no apology. Never asked if we wanted more drinks. Missing in action for most... More

There are close to 2,000 cevicherias in Lima, but this one offers the best food in a great environment. Stop by at lunch and see why they have the best ceviches in town.
