Fodor's Review

Overlooking the beach boardwalk, this breezypatio restaurant is slightly overpriced and service is slow, but you get dinner with a view anda menu specializing in Peruvian seafood dishes. The same family has had a beachfront restaurant here since 1954, with seating on a wooden deck, where you can watch fishing boats bobbing in the bay. The menu highlights Peruvian chaufa, rice and shrimp spiced with Japanese flavors, and a Peruvian-style chunky ceviche. Desserts include flans, flambéed Bananas Foster, and keylime pie. The wine list is notable for a wide range of Spanish and Italian wines, some available by the glass. There's live music on weekends.
