Another highly recommended place and it was okay, not by any means the best ceviche we had in Lima not the ambience I was expecting. We got a reservation there last minute (we were just too tired to go to the fancy restaurant we had planned on going to) and it was fine for that, but nothing special.

Delightful and very helpful service staff and a great menu! It took us a long time to decide, but a gentleman at our hotel told us NOT to miss the pulpo and we were not disappointed! Grilled and slightly smokey, it was served with asparagus and it was delicious. In fact, it was the best thing we've had so far... More

This is my favorite ceviche of all time.... Its simply the best! Sunday is great as its family day so you get part of the cultural aspect of Latin America.

Have been eating here for at least 14 years and have not been disappointed. The service could be better but the quality of the food and drink is great. The grilled octopus, ceviche, and chupe (a seafood stew) are all recommended along with the pisco sour or a cold cusquena to wash it all down. Recommended with larger groups (we... More

The ceviches and tiraditos were just sensational. Main courses were ok and came with more rice, yuca or potato than the guinea pig, fish and fried seafood (a big disappointment) we ordered. We spent a good while trying to understand the strange but original menu. In the end we would have preferred to have only ceviches and tiraditos because they... More

Visited Pescados capitales with our friends on our last night in Peru and were not disappointed. The place came highly recommended and it has clearly earned its reputation by offering great food at reasonable prices and excellent service. The food is basically seafood although it does have some poultry and beef (also pork). The ceviches are excellent and I particularly... More

This is a nice seafood restaurant. We had sea bass, great! the ceviche was really good too and also the drinks. Enjoyable lunch and it has a boutique where they sell very pretty jewelry. A little expensive but worth the try.

I went there with high expectations and maybe I had idealised the place a bit - I found an ok ceviche (but without enough leech de tigre and not seasoned right, to many onions despite asking for less), a very good octopus with causa, as well as a good seafood saltado. The appetisers, wantan, tequenos and parmesan scallops were good.... More

This restaurant is famous for its fresh seafood and excellent pisco sours. This is one of the best places in Lima to try a traditional ceviche or a tiradito They also have a great variety of cooked local fish, everything is fresh and delicious.

There are close to 2,000 cevicherias in Lima, but this one offers the best food in a great environment. Stop by at lunch and see why they have the best ceviches in town.
