Peruvian cuisine with seafood has been influenced by cuisines from almost 4 continents of the world; some of its most important influences are Basque, Spanish, African, Japanese, Sino-Cantonese, and Italian.
This cuisine has many varieties and specialties, and since it is located alongside the Pacific Ocean, it has a lot of seafood dishes to offer.
Peruvian seafood is getting famous for lemony sweet rice dishes like ceviche, and while in the capital city of Lima, you'll find no shortage of seafood restaurants offering these staple meals. At affordable prices and with ample portions, the Lima chefs are not known for skimping on the variety of seafood on offer.
Miraflores and San Isidro have plenty of good options, and some of our recommendations include the famous Pescados Capitales
; the young yet not less famous La Mar
and its ceviches; Segundo Muelle
and Punta Sal
, two restaurants chains that are growing and spreading; the affordable El Pez Amigo
; and if you want to go fancy, La Rosa Nautica.
Other good places are the traditional Cordano
, in Lima downtown; Sonia
, in Chorrillos; Embarcadero 41
, in Santiago de Surco, or Costanera 700
, also in Miraflores.
