El Pez On specialises in classic fish dishes and delivers the most amazing ceviches and causas. The fish stew is also first class and the waiting staff could not be more attentive.

Had lunch here 24 Sept 2016 and loved it. Great atmosphere and clearly very popular including locals which I find to be a good sign. Quite an extensive menu (in English) and with pics at reasonable prices. I opted for the ceviche which was delicious although a little less onion would have made it better balanced and perfect. I would... More

Today I was in Lima for just a few hours and was recommended to try the famous Ceviche hence my visit to El Pez. The food was great, served quickly as I had asked and then they arranged for a taxi to take me to the beach so I could dip my toes in the Pacific for the first time... More

Ate dinner there 17 September. Waitstaff was very attentive. Interesting posters abound. My only problem was all of the fish dishes seemed fried. I settled for a generous portion of panko breaded fish over flat noodle with a rich pesto sauce. Very tasty and filling. Rated only 4 stars as I prefer fish broiled.

We arrived late at the hotel and just popped into the nearest restaurant. Very big positive surprise. Cheerful service and excellent food served in large portions.

Ordered "Pezon Planchado". Presentation of dish wasnt good. Fish was salty and salad did not taste fresh. Did not like that they did not have a bar either.

We read about El Pez On on TripAdvisor and decided to have dinner there on our first night in Lima. We enjoyed the food and our server Carlos so much that we returned for dinner again on out last night before returning home. I highly recommend the ceviche and wonderfully positive attitude of Carlos. In fact, I'm craving the ceviche... More

We went for a late dinner and was greeted by Carlos who gave us a Pisco Sour (2 for 1) even though we we were over an hour past happy hour. The service was fast and fun. We had the Orgia Marina and the Lomo Saltado. Generous portions with the Pulpo al Olivo being the softest (& tastiest) ever! Recommended... More
