Popular has no shortage of clientele, quite the contrary. The different times I´ve passed by, it has always been busy with clients having a drink or a meal while watching the ocean and the great view of the bay. Since the sunsets are spectacular during this time of the year, the terrace and the indoor seats facing the ocean get filled up quickly. The restaurant’s casual ambiance is brought out by the many hanging plants, as well as by the memorabilia decorating the walls. With these touches, the establishment makes you feel as if you were in a market.
After asking our server for the menu, we were surprised when he brought out a big book with Bob Marley in the cover. But what surprised us more was the large choice of dishes that it offered. We were told that there are more than one-hundred and twenty dishes selected by chef Carlos Testino –the same chef from Lima 27, Mangos, 27 Tapas, Isidro Bistró, and others. The dishes appear on the menu according to the degree of heat used to prepare them. For example, in the section ¨3 to 5 degrees,¨ you’ll find cold dishes such as ceviches or tiraditos; in the 90 to 100 degrees, you’ll find dishes that require the use of an oven, such as the Peruvian Stuffed Potato, or the Parmesan Scallops; in the 180 degrees you’ll find fried dishes like a jalea, their famous English Fish and Chips, or the Japanese tempura.
