I came back the next day for lunch, had pulpo (octopus) en olivo, a purple olive sauce. The octopus was sliced longwise and thin, the sauce was excellent. I eat octopus as often as... More

Very fresh and tasty Ceviche. Big portions and great quality food. It is not cheap by any standards but worth it.

Big Ben is simply one of the very best places for fish in Huanchaco. My return visit was a big hit and much better experience than previous stop. Nice drink selection and main courses are outstanding. Personally I love the corvina prepared any way. Very good service and you do not feel rushed...so sit back and enjoy Big Ben

The food and service rival and exceed many US fine dining establishments. The ceviche is incredible. The Sea Bass is better than any I have had in the US. Must go.

You will never find a ceviche elsewhere that even comes close to how wonderful the Big Ben ceviches are. Looking out over the sea eating fresh ceviche, one of my favourite moments in my life.

I went with my family for holidays and we loved the place. It is located in front of the beach and the view is really nice. We enjoyed the meal and the service was great. The people of the staff are very friendly and helpful. The prices are affordable and I would definitely recommend this restaurant to my friends.

Thank Jorge C
