We were recommended to try this place as it's packed with locals. Please be aware to take a number and stay in line until they call you. We were lucky as our wait was only 15 minutes long on a Sat at 1 pm. As...More

Amazing ceviche place. The prices were relatively high, but worth it, I think. Seems like a more local spot -- a must if you're in Barranco!

This local, casual restaurant is well worth going to. We had the ceviche (delicious) and a dish a local couple recommended Tacu Tacu (rice and shrimp dish, also delicious). Some reviews mention it is easy to meet people here. This was our experience. Before lunch...More
