Pescados Capitales

1337 Av. La Mar
Lima , Peru http://www.pescadoscapitales.com/
51-1-421-8808

A play on the Spanish phrase pecados capitales (deadly sins), this seafood restaurant replaces the word pecados (sins) with pescados (fish). In keeping with the theme, the menu includes dishes like “Freudian Lust” (grilled squid) and “Sense of Guilt” (lobster tails in white wine sauce). The specialty, however, is the fresh ceviche, which ranges from simple tuna with onion to more inventive options like curry-spiced squid with mango chutney. The restaurant itself is bright and airy, with whitewashed brick walls, light-wood furniture, and a high bamboo ceiling, as well as a large outdoor terrace lined with potted palms.
