This is a reasonably priced, family-run restaurant on the seafront in Paracas. Tables were arranged inside the open restaurant or outside. We were the first patrons to arrive as it was early in the evening and got our order in before many other diners appeared. I had the Lomo Saltado, a beef stir fry of generous proportions, even though I... More

One of the dozen or so restaurants along the bay. The fish (something like trout) was perfect. The sort of unfried French fries were unappealing, the white rice as bland as usual in Peru. An option for salad or vegetables would have made the dinner more appealing. The menu price of s/40 was reduced to get me in the door.... More

If you are very hungry go to El Arizal. It is delicious and they gave a lot of food. We ate chicharron de pescado, conchas a la parmesana, arroz marinero.

I had high expectations based on the reviews but was disappointed with my dinner of grilled shrimp(dry and overlooked) and my husband's dinner never came. I expect he contributed to the confusion by ordering in Spanish which is pretty basic. He choose not to ask about his dinner so I ate mine and we left. Must say however that the... More

After wandering the Malecon a little while looking for somewhere to have fish for dinner, and encouraged by TripAdvisor reviews, I chose El Arizal. I had grilled seabass which came with slightly underdone chips and a good salad of avocado, lettuce, cucumber and tomato. The fish was excellent. Together with a large bottle of Cusquena the bill came to S/.... More

We had fried scallops and calimari. Generous servings. Seafood is featured in almost all the restaurants. They were all busy. Nice people.

This is on the Boulevard in Paracas. We ate outside and had a great dinner: fresh fish, ceviche & Pisco Sours! It was reasonably priced, and we had a helpful, sweet woman (who couldn't speak English) to take our order. Delicious meal!

This restaurant was reasonable priced and had a variety of food. The staff were attentive and the food was served fairly quickly. I had the fried fish with fries and my dad has the tacu tacu. My fish was fresh and fried perfectly and the tacu tacu was decent. The food was hot and you could tell the kitchen staff... More

Stopped by for a late lunch after a day on the beach. The food was all freshly prepared and tasted excellent, really fast service as well. Accomomodated two children without problem.
