Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We ended up here after a nearby restaurant had a two and a half hour wait. It was the best decision we ever made. My daughters had ceviche were both increíble and my son had the arroz con mariscos (seafood rice). He was beyond upset...because we all kept dipping into his rice but it was the best arroz con mariscos we have ever had. We have visited Spain several times and this was even better than Spanish paella. I would travel back to Peru just to order this dish again. The place was a small hole in the wall but there was excellent service from great staff. Only downside was no dessert menu.More

Barra Mar is a nice local restaurant Close to where we stayed at Hotel Santa Cruz. We tried 2x to eat here. The first time there wasn’t any tables available (there’s only 12-15 tables). The 2nd time we were successful but they were about to...close and were out of the first two things we tried to order. That was fine since the quinoa bowl with ceviche had caught my attention from the moment I sat down. That dish and a nice local beer hit the spot!More

Wandered past a great restaurant near my hotel which is starting to open for evening meals. The owners and employees were very welcoming. The food was exceptional and reasonably priced. I’d definitely recommend a Pisco Sour and Ceviche Bowl.

Very good menu centered around ceviche & fried rice (“chaufa”). The Combi Barra Mar was so good. My first reaction was “no way I can eat all this”. Well... ..I did! Good vibe & service.

We got in late in Miraflores and wanted a quick bite so ordered a few dishes to go. The chifa fried rice and fish sandwich were so delicious, beautifully presented and packed. Price is very reasonable too for the quality and presentation.

I had the Champion Bowl and I can’t even describe the flavours this dish had! Fresh and so delicious!!! Harrison was eager to help us understand the menu as we don’t speak Spanish and went above and beyond to make our first dining experience in...Lima the absolute best!More

In my mission to revisit excellent restaurants that are dear to me, I was unable to skip Barra Mar on this trip. The place is tiny with a limited menu. However, the ceviche de pejerrey (baitfish) is the best I have had to date. The...papa rellena was good, but could have been smaller and a bit more crunchy. I always love the idea of serving the dishes with a spork... Will be back on the next trip.More

The recommendations from Harrison were accurate and honest. Felt like Southern hospitality in South America. They allowed us to modify our meals with all of our favorites from each dish.

Went here based on a friend’s recommendation and was super pleased! It was the best ceviche I’ve had in Peru so far. Harrison was really nice and helpful, and it’s great that he speaks English so I understand what’s in my dish.
