I've been there before and food still excellent. Kind of expensive, its one of Lima's top restaurants. It is worth it!

Lima is a foodie city, and this is one of its premier restaurants. We ended up there my accident, having tried to get into the famous El Mercado (nearby), and when they couldn't accommodate us, they suggested Pescados Capitales. We could not have been happier that they did. This is an Asia-Peruvian fusion place, with flawless service, an interesting menu... More

I knew the restaurant a very years ago. It was an excelente but with the years it has been loosing the quality and the prices became high but still worth it. It's a good option to know the variety of Peruvian food.

...because if you can deal with the erratic, inconsistent service, the food is well worth the wait. If, however, you have a limited time to eat, go somewhere else. There are lots of places for great ceviche in Lima, so don't drive yourself mad if you don't have the time or tolerance for poor service. Having said that, the food... More

This place was in a really cool location, fun atmosphere and decorations with a great patio for sitting outdoors when Lima is sunny. The drinks and the food was delicious. I was fortunate enough to be there during Lima Food Week, where they offered a special menu, but the seafood I ate was incredible. Highly recommended.

I came here because I read reviews before. They just rebuilt this restaurant. Food is ok but service is terrible. I will give it a second chance.

Peruvian food has finally received the accolades it deserves. Peruvian ceviche has no competition. It is delicious and it uses fresh fish and limes that can only be sourced in Peru. I found Pescados Capitales to have an ample menu full of Peruvian musts. The location is a former mechanic shop turned into a regional fine dining location. Choclo and... More

The local is very informal and away in a residential area.the service was average and for the food I had great expectations but kind of not great. Food lacked taste and I was very sad.

Reviewed 15 March 2017

This restaurant was one of the first one in La Mar avenue. The name is a play on the phrase for "original sin" (in Spanish, pescado, or "fish," is one letter removed from pecado, or "sin") and the menu expands the notion by giving plates like ceviche and arroz con mariscos names like "guilt," "pride," or "envy." Food is ok... More

There are close to 2,000 cevicherias in Lima, but this one offers the best food in a great environment. Stop by at lunch and see why they have the best ceviches in town.
