The food is average. Like any other cebiche restaurant. the problem is that it is not a fancy restaurant and the prices are excessive. No wonder it is almost always empty. And it really used to be crowded back in the good old days.

A popular restaurant, in the neighborhood of El Lince (not exclusive as Miraflores or San Isidro), but they serve the best seafood and at great prices. In my experience, it's where I have eaten the best bowl of shrimp soup (chupe de camarones), ceviche, and a plate of deep fried shrimp in years. It is not a romantic place, but... More

Not a romantic place, but if you are tired of tourist traps of Miraflores, you will enjoy it. This no thrills place is catered to local market and busy most of the time, especially during the lunch time. Menu is vast, food is delicious, nicely presented, portions are generous, prices are reasonable - 12-15USD for most of the main courses... More

I have seen family during day time. The place is clean and modest. It has several rooms that... More
