Pescados Capitales in Miraflores

Ever since I translated María Elena Cornejo's review of Pescados Capitales, from her Mucho Gusto Perú blog, I had been wanting to go there.

One overcast weekday in early December, we got to do just that, and meet María Elena in person for the first time.

We had a great lunch. The place was packed, very noisy, and very lively. There were a lot of suits enjoying a long lunch. This is not a cheap restaurant but well worth the price.

I was so happy to be there, and so engrossed in the conversation, I didn't start taking pictures until well into the meal and a bottle of very good Argentine wine.

Upon arrival, we were promptly given conchas al bloody mary, a type of shellfish swimming in a bloody mary sauce. It was an excellent way to start off our own long and leisurely lunch.

Pescados capitales
solo es nice
eso es todo.
Porque la comida es mala
y muy mala.
He ido mas de 5 veces
y siempre salgo con la idea
de que falto algo...
no se que...
pero le falta mucho

Prefiero segundo muelle
pero el que esta frente al

Javi: Bueno, tendré que ir muchas veces más para confirmar lo que comentas, a nosotros, en nuestra única visita, la comida no nos pareció 'mala, muy mala', pero como dicen, en gustos y sabores...

Gracias por el comentario, ya tengo Segundo Muelle en la lista para el próximo viaje a Lima.
