Ceviche is a dish typically prepared from raw fish cured in citrus juices and seasoned with peppers, widely believed to have originated in Peru. Therefore, a trip to Peru’s capital city is not complete without trying the country’s national seafood dish. La Mar in the Miraflores neighborhood is perhaps the most well-known ceviche spot in town, and for good reason. Created by internationally acclaimed chef and Peruvian food ambassador Gastón Acurio, La Mar serves up all sorts of ceviche, from a classic version to a Japanese-inspired fusion with tuna.

Pescados Capitales has a modern decor and there are two outdoor terraces where you can enjoy a traditional cocktail and some of the freshest fish in the city. Highlights are not limited to the creative ceviches; also worth trying are the seafood fettuccine and the shrimp eggrolls called tequeños.
