The gastronomic scenario in Lima, not to say the whole country, has already many years being a topic of conversation. Restaurants of excellent reputation started to pop out here and there around the capital, giving the commensals a high quality variety of alternatives with which only few other cities around the globe can compete.
With this note we do not pretend to rank the top restaurants in Lima, that is a task many other people are taking care of. Here we just want to put at your disposition some recomendations, without any specific order and not to get crazy about the best food choices in town.
We present this selection of restaurants according their location and showing the varied culinary offerings in a brief list. We also recommend to book in advance because some times is never too early.
