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.

It is a nice bar/restaurant. Lots of futebol time flags for decoration. Different kinds of beers. The "causa" was very good. The rice - Chinese style - was ok and the see food inside was fresh and well cooked.

This down to earth, corner eatery sits in the heart of Lima's coolest Barrio - Barranco. There's no fancy seating here and your food and drink is served on a plate with a glass rather than a roof tile and a jam jar (the mind...More
