We enjoyed the Larco Museum, but the lunch was even better! Beautifully presented food, an excellent wait staff, and fair prices for the excellent quality that we received. If ever we are back in Lima, we will return!

This really hit the spot on a very hot day. After spending about 1 1/2 hours touring the museum it was so welcome to relax in a beautiful setting with attentive and helpful waiters and to enjoy really fine food. The prices were in line with other good restaurants in Lima, inexpensive though by the standards of other capitals.

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

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!
