This ceviche and seafood restaurant should get more press than it does; steadily over the last two years it's become one of my favorite cevicherias, and you almost never have to wait for a table.
Things that El Huarike has going for it: (1) very good ceviche AND cooked seafood dishes; (2) an extensive, innovative menu; (3) reliability and consistency (you don't get a good meal one time and a bad meal the next); (4) extremely good service; (5) lots of space between tables.
El Huarike hits a lot of the right notes for a quality restaurant. And it keeps improving each time I go there.
What to order? The menu is big but photos will guide you in visualizing what will appear on your plate. Do order the ceviche but be warned that it is made with more spicy red rocoto than is common in many ceviche restaurants, so ask for it very mild (unless you like it hot). One dish that I often order is Ceviche El Barrio, which is half a plate of ceviche and the other half fried seafood and yuca. Portions are big, by the way.
The grilled tuna atop a bed of fettucine is excellent, as are the other grilled fish options. My son orders the makis here and loves them.
Bottom line: worth seeking out.
