It was opened in 1983. It has an extensive menu with all kinds of Peruvian specialties. It's a beautiful building made from white wood built above the sea with a walkway whose sides are bordered with shops. It's more expensive than normal for Peru, but the food is great and the environment is wonderful.
La Bistecca is a buffet restaurant, located in a very nice area of Lima, and the food there is delicious. If you celebrate your birthday there, they give you (the birthday boy or girl) a liquor drink, a special piece of cake, and then the waiters will all sing happy birthday to you in Italian. Something interesting about this restaurant is its bathrooms because they have been decorated in a special way. In the pictures I've attached you can look and see what I mean. I recommend this restaurant when you're in Lima.
La Granja Azul is a very nice country restaurant located right off the main road, very close to Lima. The house specialty is grilled chicken, better known internationally as chicken on the spit, but with a Peruvian touch. Here children and adults can both have a good time, as there's a large entertainment area. For those who don't want to be out in the field, the restaurant has a big colonial house with several rooms.
Pueblo Libre (it's one of the oldest districts) is known for having a colonial atmosphere. La Taberna Queirolo is one of the largest producers of Pisco in the country and has an agreement with the municipality to make a whole day dedicated entirely to pisco. During this day, they have plays, folk music, and a variety of pisco drinks made with different fruits like mango, mint, lucuma, etc. An ideal setting for a summer evening. One of the things I like about the place is the old photos of the early years of the republic that are hung on the walls.
This terrace in Miraflores is out on the street, but it gives you that feeling of eating in a restaurant at the same time. This simple and open space that the owner and chef, Coque Ossio, dreamed up has become a meeting place for beautiful people. It offers a small menu of light and cheerful dishes in a relaxed atmosphere where everyone can see and be seen in this small square. A place to share a glass of wine after work and enjoy good conversation.
This is one of the 'huariques' (popular restaurants) with the most 'Barranco' atmosphere. The always full Canta Rana is decorated with lots of flavor. Its walls are crowded with memories, pictures, banners, flags, and sports trophies. The tables, close together, allow just enough room for the waiters, colourful characters, to get by. As for the 'huarique' dishes, I highly recommend ceviche and fish chowder (a delicious fish soup with rice, milk and very spicy seasonings).
This restaurant was established by two Swiss refugees and an English couple in the 1950s, when the Horseshoe Beach was still a hot spot. Situated in Switzerland, the Swiss Corvina, ceviche blends seamlessly mixed with lemonade overlooking this beach only in the desert and isolated from the big city. The dessert, a mythical place like this could only leave a good taste, mix the caramelized apple pancake with vanilla ice cream. The portraits on the walls attest to this meal with tradition.
It is to the side of the Miraflores Central Park (park-center-of-Miraflores). It is perfect for a quick drink, snacks, sandwiches or pasta, as it has a big terrace next to the park, and the juices and smoothies are tasty. It is a great place for a drink at night, as the park is very lively.
Located in Barranco, a house of the last century where exhibitions are held, the restaurant is located in the backyard, modern, minimalist and directly accessed by the rear courtyard. Some of the most recommendable items are the Pisco Sour Cocktail Passion Fruit, specialty fish especially tuna. It is of the very best of Lima, luckily I have tried all the restaurants that are deserving in the city and this for me is special. The spectacular deal, Victor Chong makes a great kitchen. Give it A try.
Although the terrace's awnings hide the old balcony of the house, its waiters dressed as they always have, in rigorous black and white, served a tasty homemade bread as well as fish dishes that made you feel like you were diving into a sea of flavors. This easy meal comes with a dessert to rival the quality of their entrees. The photos speak for themselves.
