Famous because his association with the name of the Chef Gaston Acurio, but it fails to the expectations, nothing special, the other Gaston's restaurants are much better

Peruvian seafood has a distinctive taste. Nothing we have tasted before. From what we have heard there are various different levels of quality when having ceviche so we decided to go to the best reccommended. La Mar didnt dissapoint.

Absolutely hands down my favorite dining experience in Lima (and there were many). The ceviche selection and Pisco sour selection could not have been more satisfying. It felt like the paparazzi should be right outside the door this place simply buzzed with excitement. In particular I loved the simplicity of the decor - outdoors with a tented roof and running pond separating the entrance.
With so many choices of entrees I just let it go and asked the waitress to bring me her favorite and I believe it turned out to be everyone's favorite. A casserole dish of potato (it is Peru after all) with scrambled egg layered on top and then large savory chunks of perfectly cooked as the top layer. I would never have picked this in a million years and it made the most lasting impression with its flavor and simplicity. Please just go (if you can get in!) and order the ceviche sampler.
