Located on the private pier of Hotel Paracas, this restaurant is hard to beat as the best in Paracas. The restaurant partners with a local fisherman, so their fish is always fresh and delicious. This is one of the more expensive restaurants in Paracs, but for what they serve it’s more than worth the price.

Better for breakfast, but still makes a nice place to grab a bite to eat. The restaurant is vegan and vegetarian friendly and serve up vegetarian burgers which is always a nice touch. If you’re looking for classic Peruvian food this isn’t your spot. What they do best are their large smoothies which are perfect for breakfast or a light lunch.

Il Covo

Restaurant, Italian, $$$
It is a restaurant that took time and thought into setting a good ambiance, which is hard to find in Paracas. Owned by Italian immigrants, you have to order the Italian food here. Pizzas and pastas done by Italians in Peru, they’ll tell you—it’s not a fusion. They pride themselves on great ingredients and their Italian traditions.
