After such a beautiful museum, another good experience

after a "meal" of marvelous pre-columbian art, enjoy a good meal too, in very nice settings, for a reasonable price

The Museum is excellent and the Caffe is a very beautiful and relaxing place to stay and have a drink or a meal.

Good, beautiful, chic and Quiet. :) and most of all. It is not too expensive. It worths every sol you pay. ;) after visiting the museum you should go at lest to go drink a cup of coffee if you don't have money. If you have a little more go and eat a complete meal.

We visited the Cafe del Museo after touring the Museo Larco. Our afternoon was very nice and relaxing. The museum is reviewed on its own and is quite good. In the flower filled courtyard is the Cafe. Outdoor covered seating is abundant to enjoy your meal amidst the gardens. The service was very good. The staff worked with us well... More

The flowers and the outdoor setting make this cafe a wonderful place to relax and have lunch after going to the museum. We enjoyed our salads with beef. Service was excellent, and we just had the most relaxing time. The sun and warm weather didn't hurt, either!

This was a highlight of our one day stay in Lima - both the museum and the wonderful cafe-restaurant. It is an oasis in Lima! I highly recommend!

This restaurant is in a magnificent setting in terraces looking on to a beautiful garden. The staff are plentiful, attentive and friendly. The tequedos had pastry that was too thick and was cooked in oil which totally masked the flavour of the 'Andean Cheese' within. The accompanying guacamole was excellent. The duck content of the Cebiche de Pato was not... More

The food is good and covers a variety of tastes. The ambience is excellent with the outside eating area facing the main museum building.

The setting is beautiful, the staff are friendly and let's face it, while you're at this fantastic museum you don't have other options when you inevitably get a bit peckish. Unfortunately while this cafe charges you through the roof for its menu it doesn't deliver on food. It's all a little bland and portions are small. The tea menu is... More

We visited the Larco on our first trip to Lima but didn't have time to eat at the restaurant on that trip. On our second visit to Lima, it was a priority. We are so glad we had dinner there!! It just happened to be my husband's birthday, and the meal was worthy of the occasion. We had calamari to... More
