Fodor's Review

Perched on a ridge several miles north of town, El Mirador has a sweeping view of the Central Valley that is impressive by day but more beautiful at dusk and night when the basin is filled with twinkling lights. Get a window table in the dining room, or one on the adjacent porch if it isn't too cool. The menu, which includes lomito (tenderloin) and corvina (sea bass) served with various sauces, and several shrimp and chicken dishes, plays second fiddle to

the view. Stop in around sunset for drinks and appetizers instead. There are at least two other restaurants nearby with similar names and views—this one is on the main road, close to the Buena Vista Hotel.
