Description: This restaurant, decorated with futbol (soccer) motifs, has an informal, relaxed and friendly atmosphere. It is located in downtown Barranco and has been around for more than 20 years. It offers very nice cebiches and fresh seafood in classic Peruvian coastal preparations with some Northern influence. While you wait for your order you can taste zarandaja (Northern cooked beans marinated with oil and spices). If you are thirsty or as a perfect companion to your cebiche try the chicha morada (a refreshing drink prepared from boiled purple corn to which chunks of pineapple, sugar, ice and lemon are added).
Price Range: Moderate
