Fodor's Review

Skip the first floor and head upstairs to the terrace for great views of the beach at Huanchaco's largest and most popular restaurant. Enjoy Huanchaquero specialties, including cangrejo reventado (baked crab stuffed with egg) and cebiche de mococho (algae cebiche). Only open 11–6, this open-air restaurant serves lunch and sunset drinks from a special wine list or cocktail menu.

Big Ben Review

Loved the place the wait staff was nice and helpful. The food was wonderful. The views from upstairs are so nice and it really keeps the children interested. The Bathrooms are very clean. The food value was nice; however, the portions sizes were not as big as they are in other places. This was good on this day because I believe we were so full anyway that a light lunch was great.

Big Ben Review

Some of the best Ceviche I have ever had. Each was delivered along with 'not too spicy' but well-flavored signature chile sauces. Aside from the view and the wonderful cuisine, this Restaurant carries one of my favorite Rums, Cartavio. We must have tasted at least 5 different Cartavio cocktails--all superb (especially the Cartavio Sour!)
