Big and soberly decorated restaurant located in a nice area of Surquillo. They offer a good variety of cebiches and other seafood dishes like tiradito (kind of a cebiche without onions), parihuela (a spicy thick soup with fish, shellfish and crabs), jalea (fried seafood on top of a fried fish filet covered with an onions salad), sudado, etc. The piqueos (trays with a sample of a couple of dishes) are really good. Piqueo del puerto brings cebiche, tiradito and causa de pulpa de cangrejo (a dish that has two layers of spicy and sour mash potatoes and crab meat stuffing between them). They have a nice selection of piscos and they prepare a good pisco sour.
Price Range: Moderate
