Charlie's Catarindo

Peruvian in Mollendo

Tucked away in a secluded cove framed by rocky mountains just north of town, Charlie's is the local go-to place for a long lunch followed by a couple of drinks. Take a seat out under the umbrellas next to the water or inside the bright dining room with full windows and tuck into a variety of seafood classics.

In high season there is a DJ and volleyball games and it can get a bit overrun. If you want to stay there are a couple of sea-view bungalows for rent from S200. A taxi from town costs around S10.
