Located in the Barranco district, this is a colorful, typical place with wonderful food. We were on to try several things, so in a party of two we shared 3 different appetizers (leguado ceviche, fish tiradito and octopus salad) and a Chaufa (Peruvian-Chinese) rice with...More

A great restaurant experience where the ceviche truly shines! The other dishes that we tried were OK, but I would go for the great ceviche every time.

After walking around the Barranco district, we were told to try this restaurant. Very business and noisy. Local hangout. Lots of soccer jerseys and sports photos hanging on the walls. Had a great lunch or pasta with shrimp. Huge portions. Could have easily split. Enjoyed.

This restaurant knows how to make ceviche! It's a whole in the wall with a very casual vibe, so no need to dress up. Wasn't impressed with the shrimp, but wanted to come back to try the variety of ceviche on the menu. Great service,...More
