The sushi rolls (3 types) were very good (we have had better). The highlight was the new special item that was a large seared tuna steak served with a side of octopus and scallops in a creamy yellow curry sauce. It was outstanding.

Overall, a very good meal, good service and very reasonable price.

Bad ceviche, small portion and overpriced. Their sushi are average. Not worth it. Any bar ceviche would taste better than makoto. Thumbs don't. Will not come back.

My search for really great sushi in Lima continues and was not slowed down by my return visit to Makoto in their new location. The service and the food were at best mediocre. I sat at the bar as I was alone, thinking to engage the chefs in the usual banter. Nope, no banter. Bland descriptions of fish and rolls. These in turn did turn out to be bland. They only had 4 kinds of fish, tuna, salmon, lenguado and congrillo (a large eel) for sushi, all pretty basic. I had two rolls, both forgettable. If you are in the neighborhood, it is OK for an easy meal, but not worth a cab ride.

The restaurant it self was beautiful, wait staff polite and friendly. My husband had three different rolls that he chose randomly. The fish was fresh and tasty. Enjoy.

Very well located, easy to find (behind El pardo Hotel), nice place with very good service. Sushi was very good although bites were bigger than normal making it difficult to fit in one bit.
Prices are normal to high but it's very well worth it.
