We were recommended to go here by our hotel - what a great recommendation! The ceviches that we had were delicious, as were the pisco drinks. There was a live band when we got there that was on the loud side and detracted from the ambience a little, but overall it was a great lunch.

This restaurant was recommended by the concierge of the hotel as being on a par with some of the better fish restaurants in Lima, so I thought I would try it. He told me that a reservation was not necessary, but when I arrived the restaurant was packed and with people waiting for tables. I was offered a table in... More

Lunch was good but not exceptional. The seafood soup was very good. The papas a la huancaina were average. The chaifa (rice with seafood) was acceptable. Desserts were good. Staff was very polite and helpfull and the place was pleasant.

Okay, I'm still giving the place four out of five, but of the four of us who went to Alfresco, one of us got really sick. The food tasted delicious - big portions of ceviche and other seafood were all great. Within about two hours of dinner, though, one of the people in our group was miserable. It's busy and... More

Our tour guide recommended this place. We were a group of 18 people and went there the 1st evening in Lima at the beginning of our tour. With 18 people, we were able to order a wide selection of dishes and so everyone can get a taste of the different dishes. Everybody loved this restaurant and we ended up going... More

Alfresco was one of our first meals on arrival in Peru. We were keen to have ceviche in Lima and we had been recommended that Alfresco was the place to go for ceviche. Beautifully looked after from the moment we arrived. This is not a local restaurant but it shows strong family heritage in welcoming visitors whether international or Peruvian.... More

We found Alfresco on TripAdvisor and we saw a lot of positive responses. And it should be. The food was amazing. For me it was the best fish we had so far in these three weeks in Peru! I highly recommend the swordfish, just like other visitors and the tuna steak. The wine we had was also pretty good by... More

I had dinner here a few nights ago and was pleasantly surprised. I wanted the Surf & Turf but it was not available that night, so for a starter I had calamari in an olive sauce, followed by salmon marinated with curry sauce. Quality and presentation of both was excellent. Ambience was OK, nothing fancy. Service was a bit slow... More

The food here was absolutely gorgeous, Although quite expensive. The service was pretty poor! I felt like I was an inconvenience. I'm sure the staff are lovely and there was an obvious language barrier (I should be able to spk better Spanish), however, I felt very uncomfortable and to be honest I could not wait to leave. We ordered a... More

The seafood here is slightly upscale but worth it, still only about $25 US/person. The service was friendly, fast and very professional.
