- No.26 Latin America's 50 Best Restaurants 2019
The brainchild of Peruvian culinary godfather Gastón Acurio, La Mar brings the best from Peru’s Pacific waters to the table daily. The pioneering cevicheria, sat in the heart of Lima’s upmarket Miraflores neighbourhood, regularly features on Latin America’s 50 Best list. As you’d expect, there’s a dazzling array of ceviches to choose from, but La Mar is only open between 12pm and 5:30pm each day to ensure only the freshest produce is served. And you best get there early unless you don’t mind standing in line as it’s no reservations and always a popular choice for Limeños. The size of the menu might be overwhelming, but you can’t go wrong with the classic ceviche made with catch of the day. And for the full Lima experience, it must be matched with at least one pisco sour.
