First time to this place, the food is simply spectacular. Everything was great. Very inventive cuisine. Big emphasis on seafood. Lots of ceviche and Japanese/Peruvian inspired dishes. Great cocktails too. The location is great, right on the waterfront, near the ferry building. Service was discreet...More

Once a favorite, this place has sadly gone downhill. The menu selection has been reduced to the boring basics, while the price has tripled. Quite the letdown from the family of restaurants created by chef Gaston Acuria.

This is a large, spacious and airy restaurant overlooking the bay. The ambience is casual and relaxed. The serving staff are friendly and very helpful. And the good is rich, spicy and beautifully presented - and with a nice Peruvian slant. It's not Michelin star...More

We had four types of cerviche. It was delicious! They're complementary dip and chips were very good. They have a fun list of cocktails and a wide range of wines. Our server did a great job. We would recommend this.

The Corkage Fee for 1 bottle of Wine is $25.00. Have a great time and I suggest going to Happy Hour in the Bar and the drinks and wine is at a great price.
