Punto Azul Restaurant in Miraflores, Peru Mar 24, 2012
I would like to first state that my fiance is from Peru and lives one half block from this restaraunt. She tells me it is very good. Every day there are people lined up outside, waiting to eat here.The first time I waited in line, I was not to impressed with the food. I had the "langostinos" shrimp. BUT worst part about this restaurant, I payed the bill and got bad money back. IT WAS FAKE. IN Peru, be careful of this. My fiance works in a bank and sees this all the time. BUT, back to the restaraunt, I ordered langostinos con pasta. It was a little dry. I asked for more sauce and they brought me back a bowl of soup. Pasta soaked in grease. I would not go here to eat at all. If you do, check your money when you leave.

Seafood Apr 17, 2010
I really recommend this restaurant. The food is very good, the plates are served in big portions and the prices are cheaper than other restaurants.

It is always crowded and sometimes you have to wait for a table. I recommend to go early, like half day.

I like the dish "tiradito tricolor"

Punto Azul BBB - Tasty & fresh Fish and Seafood Aug 24, 2008
I guess the best way to describe this restaurant is with these 3 statements: Great seafood, large portions, good value!

As we called it here BBB

Bueno (good), Bonito (nice) & Barato (cheap) - a good combination, isn't it?

Is this the best restaurant in the city? Actually is extremely difficult to choose the best restaurant when there are so many great ones. I just can say that you MUST visit it. You can try here delicious food, new and tasty dishes, without spending much money. There are so many good dishes. Try the cebiche Punto Azul (the special of the house), the new trio of causas (mashed potatoes). If you are cold, ask for a parihuela soup. As appetizer the choritos a la chalaca are a great choice!

This restaurant has 4 locations. I usually go to 2 of them. The atmosphere is nice and laid back. The decoration is simple and they use bright colors. The ones in Miraflores and Surco are just big houses turned into restaurants. The staff is helpful, but they could be really busy.

The only bad thing is the fact it is always full of people, which means you have to do a long line... but you know, if it's full, the food might be really something. Tip: arrive either early - 12:30pm or late after 2:30pm :)

Something to know: they don't take credit cards & they don't take reservations. They just serve lunch, but don't work on Mondays ;)

UPDATE: The location in Surco has started to take reservations but just from Tue - Fri!

Ceviche Galore! Apr 30, 2008
When I went to Lima I was on a quest to eat some good ceviche and let me tell you I found just the spot. This place was recommended by some local guy I randomly stopped in the streets. Thanks! I ordered myself a ceviche mixto, chicharones, and of course some Cusquena beer. Que bueno!!!

Please Note: There was a five minute wait. From what I was told, that was nothing compared to how it usually gets.

Tried their Ceviche Mixto and Ceviche Punto Azul. Each dish was big enough to share for two and the seafood is just really fresh. It comes with corn and camote (sweet potato). Prices are between 15 and 20 soles, which is very affordable. They have different locations but I went to the one on Calle San Martin in Miraflores. You should also try the chicha morada (purple corn drink).

In less than a month I will be leaving Lima, but that doesn't stop me to continue with my Ambassador's duties, hehe. A few weeks ago Shane contacted me and we've been talking about what he and his fr…Lima, so fish & seafood was the logical choice. We went to Punto Azul, but not the one in Miraflores…
