If you like oysters and ceviche - then this is your place. Many variations of both make it a great experience. Good atmosphere and the pisco mule make it worth a visit.

A familiar peruvian ambience with commonly named servings that has been reinvented not to reflex even the basics of peruvian cuisine. (Tiradito with smoked cod instead of lemon cooked cod, it should be named smoked cod, for example). Too inventive without an essence. Prices are high, service however was really good ultil they offer a free sample (that they charged at the end) of picarones because we were not really pleased with the experience. Doesn't seem to be one of Acurio's restaurants, it really doesn't reflex in anyway peruvian cuisine. For this price, at least for me, this is the worst peruvian restaurant in Barcelona.

Very nice and bright atmosphere, nice decor.
Food wise, we had some croquettes which weren’t on the menu, entraña and lomito saltado - both meats were amazing! To top it off - pisco mule for all you Moscow mule lovers - you should definitely try it!
Didn’t care much for the dessert though

Excellent experience as a team here. We came in a bit early and could see the fresh fish and oysters being prepared in the counter. The restaurant smelled deliciously of good product. The waiter expertly advised on the best dishes to share and his choice was good: mussels, ceviche, anticuchos and a grilled fish. With some champagne as a starter and a Rias Baixas as the white wine to wash the meal, it was overall a very pleasant experience and we enjoyed the authenticity of the cuisine (I have been to Lima a few times) and the nice venue. Thanks also to the maître d' for changing our table and putting us in a very nice high table where we had a great experience. Gastón Acurio hits the bull eye again!

It is not just the food, which is excellent (a great mix between classic peruvian food and revisited one) but service is one of the greatest. It is greatly located in the heart of Barcelona and ambience is quite good. They serve great cocktails as well so we will get back for sure!
