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.

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

Very fresh and beautiful place to enjoy delicious sea food. Located in a most important gastronomy street in Lima, where you can eat the best ceviches in Peru.

Another highly recommended place and it was okay, not by any means the best ceviche we had in Lima not the ambience I was expecting. We got a reservation there last minute (we were just too tired to go to the fancy restaurant we had planned on going to) and it was fine for that, but nothing special.

Delightful and very helpful service staff and a great menu! It took us a long time to decide, but a gentleman at our hotel told us NOT to miss the pulpo and we were not disappointed! Grilled and slightly smokey, it was served with asparagus and it was delicious. In fact, it was the best thing we've had so far... More

This is my favorite ceviche of all time.... Its simply the best! Sunday is great as its family day so you get part of the cultural aspect of Latin America.

Have been eating here for at least 14 years and have not been disappointed. The service could be better but the quality of the food and drink is great. The grilled octopus, ceviche, and chupe (a seafood stew) are all recommended along with the pisco sour or a cold cusquena to wash it all down. Recommended with larger groups (we... 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.
