Fodor's Review

This vast restaurant with a laid-back ambience is one of the best places in Lima for seafood, and it consequently gets packed at lunch. The name is a play on the Spanish term for the seven deadly sins, but the only one they're promoting is gluttony—and quite effectively at that. Consider such starters as tequeños capitales (shrimp eggrolls), a causa (cold mashed potato cake) with shrimp, avocado, and cream cheese, or a cebiche called Generosity, with generous chunks of sole, tuna, and salmon and red onion and aji chilis marinated in lime juice. Lust—fettuccine with a mix of scallops, shrimp, and squid in spicy cream sauce—is a sin worth committing, but so is the quinoa de mariscos (the Andean grain quinua baked with seafood and served with a garbanzo bean–and-avocado salad). Toss morality to the wind, and dig in! Very close to San Isidro, this place is one of the only cebicherías that opens for dinner.
