In fact this is a good restaurant. The ceviches are tasty, the seafood is ok. But, even for Rio de Janeiro standards, it is overpriced. We didn't really feel like we were having unique chef cuisine for that range of price. Don't plan on coming back.

We planned to go in a regular bar but, seemed the luck had kicked us out. But, when we passed through this restobar we felt to try it. Glad luck had something much nicer for us. Kind of pricey but, worth spending and visiting. The servers are very polite and serve quickly. We ordered appetizers since it was just to... More

Reading the various reviews about Lima we were probably expecting too much or the place. Anyhow, we went there for dinner with family and we had ceviche, grilled octopus and of course pisco sour. Now the ceviche was indeed good, the flavors were well combined and were mixing together pretty well, plus what we had was enough or 2 people.... More

Fantastic, wonderful conchitas parmesan, excellent tuna fish and dorado fish. For the final score we asked for suspiro limeño with lucuma. Strongly recommended.

Best ceviche I've ever had- and I was in Lima for several weeks! I ordered the ceviche sampler, including the mixta and the salmon. Was so delicious I almost went back the next day.

Went on a Sunday at lunch. Good peruvian food, some ingredients missing, but well we are not in Peru. Good ceviche, good arroz com pato and good tuna, seared right to the point. But what tops everything is the lucuma dessert! Just delicious. Try the Pisco Sour, they know how to do a good one.

Loved this place so much we went twice! The staff is great, as are their ceviches. And a healthy portion for the price, too. As a Peruvian, totally recommend this place.
