Hola, I'd like to share my experience from the "Restaurante Merienda" in Chinchero where I went the other day with a group of friends. We drove from Cusco to Chinchero to visit the local market (famous for its handmade textiles) and the ruins and found by chance the beautiful restaurant, located in a stone house on a small hill on ...Popular withAdventureFoodiesLocal
The Japanese have been leaving their mark on Peruvian culture since the first wave of immigrants landed in Callao at the end of the 19th century. Today, Japanese influence is especially prominent in the country's cuisine. There is an abundance of top-notch Japanese and sushi restaurants around Lima, and many of them specialize in a form of Peruvian fusion cuisine ...Popular withLocalBusinessFoodies

Saqra was a pleasant surprise in our trip. We went on a holiday so we were lucky it was empty, so service was amazing and the Peruvian food was also really good. For drinks, we had chilcanos, which are made of pisco and fruit juice, in very generous bottle-bottom cutout cups. The folk decoration is part of the attraction and ...Popular withBusinessFoodiesFamilies
I wasn't expecting to have sushi in Peru but with a strong Japanese presence in Lima the option to try fusion Peruvian-Japanese sounded like a one time opportunity. This place is very expensive, but worth a splurge if you're into experimental cuisine. Ceviche and sashimi, exotic sushi rolls, and plates of marinated meats and vegetables are served tapas style. You ...

So, the place is not that nice looking. Neither is the surrounding area. But the flavor, OMG the flavor. This place serves the greatest, tastiest, spiciest "pollo a la brasa" (roasted chicken) in Lima. Considering that this dish is one of our most valued national treasures, this place is a must.

Avenida La Mar is known as the cevicheria hub of Lima, so competition is stiff, but this simple restaurant with an enormous menu stands up to the challenge. Expect to pay a La Mar-worthy price (although ceviche isn't particularly cheap anywhere in the city), but it's worth it. There are also tons of other seafood options, as well as a ...Popular withFoodiesBusinessFamilies

If you don't have the budget (or the fancy wardrobe) to truly appreciate Astrid & Gastón, the city's most celebrated upscale restaurant, Panchita is a great alternative. It is the creation of the same man, celebrity chef Gaston Acurio, and with its focus on homestyle criolla food and a more casual atmosphere, it's a great, less pretentious way to get ...Popular withLocalFoodiesLuxury
Wonderful restaurant in the Barranco barrio of Lima, Restaurante Javier serves delicious new Peruvian cuisine with a side of AWESOME ocean views and warm, friendly service. They don't need live music (although it is there) when there is the soothing sound of the gentle waves accompanying the meal.Popular withFoodiesBudgetBusiness

LIMO is a modern Peruvian restaurant located next to the Plaza del Armas. It has a romantic ambiance, with windows looking out the plaza. The restaurant seemed prepared for tourists, having available English menus. The menu was very interesting and I wished I could have tried more things. The restaurant served its version of ceviche, tiraditos, classic Peruvian meat and ...Popular withFoodiesTrendstersLocal
Known for its wine, the decor of this restaurant was really nice. My friend had the alpaca burger, and they did not like it. I had the pork belly, and it was good. I would go back here, and definately try more of their wine selection. I liked the vibe. It is the "sister restaurant" of Cicciolina.

This is a very touristy restaurant overlooking the Plaza de Armas in Cusco. They have a show at least some evenings at 8pm with folk dancing and a band that plays with traditional Peruvian instruments. They have a buffet and also offer a menu. They have cuy for 70 soles. I was not a fan of it, but my friend ...

Although it goes against every good fiber of my being to recommend fast food, I do love an example of something homegrown standing up to aggressive international competition. Inca Kola was once the only local soda in the world to out-sell Coca-Cola in its home country, so, naturally, Coke bought it out. Bembos carries on that legacy with its burger ...Popular withBudgetBackpackersFamilies

A great small place in Lima to eat "chicharrón" (fried pork) sandwiches, this place also serves traditional peruvian dishes like "lomo saltado" and some innovative ones like "tacu-chaufa". Add some peruvian desserts to the mix and good prices and you clearly have a winner.
