Blu Mar Lima Reviews
The best service and good food - Blu Mar Jan 04, 2010
This restaurant is located on Av. La Mar, which in the last few years became the favorite location for several fish and sea food restaurants.
This place opened just 3 months ago, so they are still trying to attract new customers and become them regular ones. All the restaurants in this area are very high quality and not that cheap. Besides the nice decoration - all in white and blue as its name suggests - the delicious food - good taste and impeccable presentation, they also offer an outstanding service.
This awesome service starts since the very beginning, with the security man at the front door helping you with the parking, and also giving business cards. Actually he was the reason why we decided to try this place. Then a nice girl will welcome you and while you are getting your table, everybody (chef, waiters and the owner) will wave and make you feel like a star is arriving.
Regarding the food it's very good. Prices are not cheap, but they are average. Food has a good taste and the presentation is very good. They put special effort. We had:
-Choritos del Puerto: an own version of the "choritos a la chalaca" which are mussels with onion, tomato and red pepper. Here they add a dash of pisco and cocona juice. The cocona is a fruit from the rain forest.
-Leche de Tigre: also a classic, just the juice of the cebiche. I've already tried the best one, so my expectations weren't that high for this subject. But the presentation in a blue glass was very neat!
-Blu Crab Cake: the reason why we came here. It was delicious. You can taste the crab meat. Although it was fried, it wasn't greasy at all. As side they serve a salad with avocado and mango, a great combination. Also the tartar sauce has its own twist: jalapenos!
I don't know if the service was that great just because they are new. But I won't hesitate in coming back and recommend this place to friends. I might even like to have a reunion here... :)
