Seafood Restaurant
$$
“This is one of our favorite restaurants to eat Seafood or peruvian Dishes, the price is very good, and the quality of the food is just amazing. You can try here Ceviche, octupus, chicharron de calamarres, Try to always ask the recommended dishes. This restaurant is very popular, so you can't do reservations in advance, so what we recomend is to go an hour before you want to eat, sign up, walk a little bit arround and then come back, they also offer the option of a bar, but you will have to wait standing up. It sounds bad, but the wait is totally worth it. ”
