No lo dudo, el personal es amable,la atención es rápida, la comida bastante buena, lo único malo es que el lugar es muy ruidoso,si te gustan los lugares tranquilos probablemente no te guste el sitio.

Restaurant Si Senor

Reviewed By GeorgeSoxtak - Iquitos, Peru

I was living there for three months and have tried almost all the dishes, drinks and desserts served at that restaurant. The food was really really good, and the service (when I visited them) was very diferent from other restaurants. If you go from 12m to 1:30pm it's a chaos because they are understaffed and (only a chef, a waitress and a waiter who's try by heart to pleased you), but at breakfast and dinner time you can talk to them and ask for some recomendations about their best dishes and their ingredients, listen music, and of course enjoy your food. It's a very intimate place next to the main square from 7:30 am to midnight.

Arriba Peru

This little restaurant is just off the Panamericana Norte in the town of Zorritos in the region of Tumbes. It is run by a delightful old fisherman, Jose Garcia.

This place is known for their amazing and cheap seafood. We had two large lobsters with fried garlic butter, ceviche, and delicious fried oysters on rice. The oysters were the best I've ever had. The lobster was a little overcooked, but some of the cheapest prices I've seen in Peru.

We are Foodlovers and love to travel and taste the culture and food. Every time we have unstoppable cravings for peruvian food, we travel to Tumbes just to have the adventure of an authentic peruvian cebiche, fresh fish marinated with great lemons, Causa peruana, made from potato and avocado with shrimp and fresh crab, Mix seafood crispy Chicharron and of course, The Lomito Saltado, a delicious stir fry sautéed onions and red peppers with beef tenderloin and thick french potatoes style with rocoto chili. Don't forget to ask for your welcome Pisco and zesty Lemonade which is superb. Please Inca Zero, a local soda that taste great when is chill and is also diet, its a must for the ones that remember this soda from childhood. We can deserve that much. Travelling towards the border of Peru coming from Ecuador, only for a Peruvian foodiliscious tasting is so adventurous that almost make me wonder when will be our next trip back to this spot and be happy all over again. My heart lingers each time when I think about this adventure. The town of Tumbes is quite chaotic, not even nice...nontheless, its the perfect stop only for a foodie traveller to have a glimpse of the incredible variety of flavors and good food of the peruvian country. Everywhere you go in Peru, you will find talents preparing the art of seafood,tiny spots fresh and exquisite fusion dishes prepared with passion. After having this enchanting lunch at El Brujo, move south to find delicious beach spots and hotels that will invite you to stay for the weekend. Enjoy Peru and make a pause at 6pm to stare at the Sun like the Incas to watch the sunsets.... They are unique. Make us wonder, how lucky we all are. Lima is something else, awaiting for a superb gastronomic tour, that it is a must have experience.

Restaurante Bilbao

Reviewed By Sky F - Calgary, Canada

We stopped here for lunch and tried two of the chef's specialties -- grilled octopus with plantain and chimichurri sauce and black rice with seafood (mariscos). Both were very tasty. The only disappointment was the lack of good Italian coffee as the machine was malfunctioning.

Eduardo El Brujo

Reviewed By Ray I - Cuenca, Ecuador

Since Eduardo El Brujo was ranked #1 on TripAdvisor, we decided to give it a shot. I will warn English language readers that I usually consider reviews of South American restaurants written in English, with caution. Too many writers, such as in my home town of Cuenca, EC, rate restaurants according to North American standards. On a web site such as this, such reviews will skew the results.
I cannot say that with the reviews given El Brujo. The food was absolutely outstanding. We arrived late for lunch, about 2:30 PM, having spent two hours providing documentation to bring a car across the border from Ecuador. However, we were promptly welcomed and seated. From there, unfortunately, service went downhill. First, it was incredulous we were not able to obtain wine, given the gourmet quality of the menu. Being thirsty as hell from the long drive, I ordered a Callao beer. The waitress did not understand. My bad! It is called Pilsen, locally, like Pilsner, Lager, etc. Type, not brand, matters. Next, I ordered the mixed ceviche plate, specifically asking for it, sin pulpo, (without octopus). Again, the waitress did not understand. I attributed it to my Texas accent and asked my Ecuadorian friend to explain. She did not understand him because she did not know what the dish contained, and, incredibly, what octopus was.
The owner, whom we never met, perhaps spends all his time in the kitchen. The quality of the food shows it. But someone needs to train the wait staff. Otherwise, if you can take a bit of comedy with your dinner, Eduardo El Brujo is THE place to go in Tumbes, Peru. And the ceviche was to die for! (sin pulpo)

Insitu

Reviewed By alerf - Guayaquil, Ecuador

This restaurant is located in the same building of Rizzo Hotel, this is the main reason why I selected it. You will find almost everything in the menu. I picked a chicken which came with white rice and salad. Taste was good.
Service is not the best but you will get your food on time and warm enough to eat. Coffee was horrible.
I was able to add the tab to my room bill.

Paprika Restaurant Tumbes

Our restaurant is located near the main square of Tumbes, in the most important and emblematic hotel in town (Hotel Costa del Sol). It is a comfortable and elegant place with two defined areas one inside a large living room with a sophisticated and elegant setting and a more casual outdoor area overlooking the pool.

Reviewed By natogl - Santiago Metropolitan Region, Chile

We end up going three times to this place. It is not amazing, but I guess it is the best you can get in Tumbes. The fish was good, the bread really good, good service, nice ceviche, really good frozen lemonades!!!
The only low side were the salads, they have no clue about dressing, but all in all it was good and we ended up going more than once. I would definitely go back here if in Tumbes.

Cevicheria Restaurant Los Angeles

In September 2000, Cevicheria Restaurant Los Angeles, decided to open its doors as a family business telling just 4 employees and 3 tables in a very small space, since its founder decided to undertake the dream of turning Los Angeles into one of the best restaurants in Tumbes and north. On the basis of the culinary tradition of the family, we implemented the philosophy to fully satisfy our customers with exquisite dishes based on fish, meat and seafood, making our local favorite is the tumbesinas families and certainly an excellent choice for domestic and foreign tourists, making them feel that Best place to eat, it is also ours!. Currently we have a large room and a team trained to meet the expectations of our customers while maintaining the traditional flavor of our beginnings.
