Was pretty good, of good quality, definitely hit the spot. For a glass of wine and regular portion, which was generous for me, paid 50 soles. Place is cute covered with memorabilia etc. Recommend.

I was told this is the place to have some ceviche - and it did not disappoint. The fish was very fresh and the portion was quite big as well.

Went here for our first lunch in Lima, and our first Ceviche in Peru and couldn't have asked for anything better. The atmosphere was welcoming and a bit football mad, and the food was to die for. Some of the freshest, tastiest fish I've eaten,...More

I don’t know if reservations are possible. I advice to get there early because it is full during lunch hour.

Legendary cevicheria, football sanctuary in the heart of Barranco, familiar spot, delicaies factory, unforgeatable feasts and eternal toasts scenary. Much more than a cevocheria, a place of pilgrimage in the most bohemian neighbourhood of Lima.
