A popular dish made of raw fish or shellfish, marinated in fresh squeezed lime or lemon juice often with tropical fruit, oil, onions, peppers, and seasonings. Ceviche is a seafood dish that derived from the coastal regions of Latin America and the Caribbean. Served chilled as an appetizer or main entree. It is absolutely delicious, healthy, and refreshing!

I Wanted To Bring That Feeling To Wrightsville Beach With A Staple In The Panamanian Diet, Ceviche, Tropical Fruit, Plantains, Etc.." - Hunter Tiblier, Owner.

    We have dined at Ceviche's numerous times over the years and it has always been enjoyable. Fun, lively, casual setting with interesting dishes. Service was excellent. We had paella this time and it was very good. The rice was a little bit gummy, but the seafood was copious and truly outstanding - shrimp, scallops, crab claws, clams, mahi mahi, etc. The coconut shrimp is great and the guacamole was delicious. Highly recommend a visit to this place.

    The food is always very good. The price point has increased to where it is a little uncomfortable now to die in there. The noise level is too high. But I do love Ceviches and will return again.

    The ceviche sampler & scallop and pork belly dishes were delicious. We enjoyed the casual ambiance in the semi-enclosed “outdoor” space. It was a bit pricey so we would definitely go back for special occasions.

    The margaritas and food (goat cheese guacamole, steak and turf, blackened tuna) were quite good. Our waiter - and the whole staff - was excellent. Parking is a big problem they’re working on resolving. And I could only reserve a bar table that was better than outside seating but would have preferred a table in the main dining room. We would definitely go back when we come back to town.

    First time dining here and EVERYTHING was delicious. Reservation was for lunch. We had the elote salsa and yucca frites as appetizers. The jalapeño aioli was amazing. Highly recommend the ropa vieja! The flank stank is was extremely flavorful! Again, EVERYTHING was sooo good! Service was excellent as well! I can’t say enough great things. We will definitely be back.

    Food was great. We were from out of town so we got there late trying to figure out the parking situation. The space was intimate and the food was great. The only 2 negatives were our seating arrangements and that we were told we’d only have a limited amount of time to eat before we’d have to leave for another reservation (even though there were free tables around us). I found that really odd bc I don’t think other patrons were told that. We were placed right next to the hostess stand which I didn’t love but our waitress was great and the food was phenomenal. Parking was very difficult to figure out.

    Underwhelming…food adequate…just so so…the prices were reasonable…we had the mango guacamole and the pineapple salsa…really good…my husband wished the chips were warm and salted…they were sturdy and tasteless to me…then we had beef and chicken empanadas….chicken was better…doughy and underdone…sauces that accompanied the empanadas were bland …we also had the blackened scallops on pork belly and asparagus…again…fine…nothing to write home about. I really liked my watermelon basil mojito and the rum old fashioned,,, super sweet but delicious.

    The ceviche is always good as are the Brussels. The poke was good but wasn't traditional poke and the bowl it was in was so small it was hard to get the food out. The scallops and pork belly was delicious. Finally, the raspberry lemon mojito was AMAZING while the watermelon was just ok. The worst part was sitting at the two-seater table at the door where folks enter, stand around your table, and one particular waitress took great pleasure throwing dirty dishes into the dish pan behind a curtain very close to our table. It was so loud and jarring. The waitress knew she was doing it and that it was unpleasant but could care less. While this has been one of our favorite places if we go back we will not sit in the main area. Very disappointed with the waitress, her attention to detail and care about the customers. It's enough to turn us off completely.

    Coconut shrimp and guacamole appetizers were delicious! Each of the 4 of us had different entries and we were all happy with our choices— beans and rice, tuna poke, steak empanadas and the special coffee rubbed beef. My Margarita was excellent. All staff were friendly and attentive. We highly recommend the food and drinks at Ceviche!

    Loved the casual Panamanian atmosphere. Great drink selections. The food was delicious. I had the corvina and my husband had shrimp and Tera major. I had tastes of those also. I will go back to try the many other items on the menu. The service was perfect. It was nice to be in a restaurant with some personality and not chain like. If you want a great meal and evening out give Ceviches a try.

    A wonderful experience as always! Candice took care of us when I last minute had to increase our party from 4 to 6. The food was fantastic! We had delicious appetizers and two people in our party had the shrimp and scallop special that was incredible! Everyone was very happy with their food and drinks. Our daughter in law wasn’t sure about the menu but she thoroughly enjoyed the appetizers and her coconut shrimp!
