This is a fantastic no-frills restaurant in Barranco. The portions are extremely generous, the quality of the food is great and they have just any Peruvian dish I know on the menu. Services is friendly but spotty.

Food must be fantastic but unfortunately after sitting outside waiting and the lady working there ignoring us only to hand people numbers that came up behind us we threw in the towel. Wife and I are to tourista looking I suppose.

There were a few ceviche restaurants near our hotel - but this one sounded interesting. We walked from Miraflores and found Canta Rana bustling with lunchtime traffic. We had ceviche mixto and also solo pescado. Both were delicious - fresh with great flavor, generous portions....More

I was told this is the place to have some ceviche - and it did not disappoint. The fish was very fresh and the portion was quite big as well.
