Best Local Ceviche in Bay Area? Will be there in a week!

Coming in from 1,500 miles away and looking forward to eating well!

Looking for suggestions for the best local ceviche offerings in the Bay Area. Nice and fresh with a balance of acidity.

Please add a sentence or two of what you like there. If you have a favorite dish, please be specific.

Very open minded. Will consider as far north of Sebastopol as well. Thanks in advance!

  1. I like Mochica, which has the same chef-owner as Piqueo and La Costanera. My favorite is the halibut tiraditos, but they don't always have it.

    1. re: Robert Lauriston

      Mochica is temporarily closed, so the OP would have to go to Piqueos or La Costanera (their food truck Sanguchon doesn't carry ceviche)

      1. re: hyperbowler

        But another former La Costanera cook owns food truck El Calamar which serves excellent Leche de Tigre ceviche. Often at SoMa Streat Food Park

      1. I haven't been in awhile but there is La Mar.

        1. Destino usually has three, with the option of getting a sampler of all of them. Note that a Peruvian-style ceviche will be quite a bit more limey-acidic than a Mexican ceviche.

          1. I love Sazon, a Peruvian restaurant in Santa Rosa. They have 6 different ceviches on the menu. A Michelin Bib Gourmand choice.
            Located in a run down strip mall, but the restaurant itself is very nice.
