Superb food at the best museum

The museum is a must. While there, this restaurant is a GREAT place to have lunch. Elegant service, delicious Peruvian dishes. Pricey but of withing your budget, well worth it.

The food was delicious specially the Piqueo Limeno incluiding delicious¨´Pastel de Choclo´, causa limena, papa a la huanyina, anticuchos, tamalito verde, and service. My Sister ate lomo saltado and was also terrific. Great ice cream as well. Luis, our server and other staff surprise my Mother singing Happy Bitday. Thank... More

Visiting Museo Larco we couldn't resist not to stop. At least for coffee and desserts... Location is perfect. Beautiful, Cosy and friendly. Both coffee and desserts were great, service was professional. Unfortunately was our last day in Lima...

This is a fabulous place, the food is excellent, they have a selection of western food and peruvian traditional favourites. It was much more reasonably priced than I initially expected. The waiters Jesús and Saul was very helpful, considering that I rocked up on crutches and feeling a little underdressed for the setting. They speak excellent english and were very... More

After visiting the Larco Museum, we stopped to have a hot chocolate at the museum restaurant. We enjoyed sitting at the edge of the garden and the waiter was happy to bring over one of the heaters when it got chilly. We can't speak to the food, but enjoyed our hot chocolates.

Museo Larco is one of the "do not miss" highlights of Lima, but be careful if you eat in the cafe. The Cafe is a lovely setting, but I made the mistake of having something with raw vegetables on the plate and a cocktail that had ice in it believing that this exquisite museum cafe would also be very careful...

The food and the service were absolutely top class. I am truly glad I was too tired after visiting the interesting museum to go hunting for food elsewhere. Do not miss out on a lovely lunch in a very pleasant atmosphere surrounded by a beautiful garden.

My wife and I stopped at Museo Larco, and decided to have lunch. It was our last day of an 11 day trip to Peru. The menu selection was wonderful and our waiter Renzo was very helpful with my wife's gluten allergy and his suggestions were perfect! The ambiance in the garden was wonderful and helped us end the trip... More

Stopped by the cafe after a day at the museum. It was a really nice treat from the busy streets in Lima. I ordered the quinoa and a salad both were really tasty. More than the food I really loved the service. My waiter Renzo's was really attentive and patient with me. I ended up spending a couple hours relaxing... More
