The food was great. We had the mixed fish ceviche and fried seafood rice. The only bad thing was that the menu was pretty confusing, they have many different things on there so I didn’t really know what to order. For the mixed rice dish...More

Contrary to so many other reviewers, I wasn’t really impressed by their fish ceviche. I thought it was bland. Needed more zing and salt! On the other hand, the lomos saltado had a delicious wine/mushroom sauce and very tender meat.

Legendary cevicheria, football sanctuary in the heart of Barranco, familiar spot, delicaies factory, unforgeatable feasts and eternal toasts scenary. Much more than a cevocheria, a place of pilgrimage in the most bohemian neighbourhood of Lima.
