Seafood specialist Andrés Rodríguez wows diners with a vast array of ceviche

Chief reason to visit: To mix with Lima’s buzzing foodie crowd and sample chef Andrés Rodríguez’s creative repertoire of ceviches that include octopus, sea urchin, shrimp and grouper – along with a pisco sour or two.

A few words on the chef: A loyal subject of Gastón Acurio’s expanding culinary empire, Rodríguez led the kitchens at Astrid & Gastón and Tanta, both in Madrid, before returning to Peru to take over from previous La Mar chef Anthony Vasquez.

Typical dishes: Ceviche; chalaca de causas, featuring crab, sand smelt crackling, avocado and tartare sauce.

What’s the vibe? This is a no-reservations joint – and hugely popular – so expect to queue. Known for its pisco-led cocktails as well as its seafood, this is relaxed limeño dining at its best.

What else: La Mar takes its social responsibility seriously by promoting sustainable seafood sourcing.
