Had to insist.... All else lovely

I had read the many reviews of the establishment and the museum along with the restaurant. I was so pleased with the reviews I decide to for go the long lay over at the airport, store our luggage, and visit the Larco and the Cafe our last night in Peru.

menu in English, great interiors and decoration, quite good selection of food, hot plates, local people come for family meals, always a chance to come back to the museum if you'd like to have another look at something - one of the best restaurants in Lima I had visited

Fabulous setting in Museo Larco. Food is delicious. My wife is a vegetarian. We had a very nice vegetarian soup and a squash Ravioli with sage sauce. Very courteous and English speaking waiter. Served us with a fantastic hot pepper and hot sauce on the side. I highly recommend this place...

This was an elegant meal--a treat for me--after an exciting morning enjoying the Larco collection. The gardens are lovely, the wait staff friendly and food delicious. Prices were more reasonable than other similar types of restaurants I noticed.

The café at the Museo Larco was lovely. When we arrived, it was a bit busy and we had to wait for about 15 minutes. When a manager (I think) saw us waiting he quickly got us seated somewhere. It was appreciated but the food was worth the wait anyway. The café is situated in a garden/courtyard of the museum.... More

They serve excellent Peruvian food in a lovely setting; combines well with the Larco Museum. We schedule our visits to the Museum to coincide with lunch and have never been disappointed with the quality of food and service.

We really really loved our visit to the Museo Larco restaurant. We had just arrived in Peru, and hadn't really expected the food to be so fantastic everywhere we went. The food here was wonderful - a huge treat - we shared a main and a starter, and treated ourselves to a bottle of Peruvian wine. It was sunny, and... More

This restaurant is a part of the Larco Museum compound. It is a wonderful way to start or end your visit to the Museum. My observations are below. 1. You may eat there with out actually visiting the main exhibit. This means you don't need to buy a museum ticket to eat at the restaurant. 2. There is a small... More

The cafe at the Museo Larco is a nice place for a coffee and a quick bite before, during or after your museum visit. We had espressos and an empanada and croissant and all were fresh and tasty. Served on a pretty patio.
