In a city known worldwide for its wonderful food, it is always hard to find food that doesn't have a Peruvian touch. The local market always demands rice, peppers or currants on their dishes and this " fusion" permeates all restaurants. Herve has tried to remained true to his French roots, and has paid dearly for it. If what you... More

The main issue with this restaurant is one of marketing, and I feel the need to encourage people to go here so the place is still around next time I come to Lima. My wife and I went here for our anniversary when our reservation at Rafael fell through. There was only one other couple there when we arrived, and... More

It is a good restaurant but too expensive. The food is very good, average service, nice setting but nothing out of this world. I wouldn't go back just because of the prices. Many nice places in Lima where you can eat very good at reasonable prices. Eating here is almost as expensive as eating in Central Restaurant and not as... More

Hervė was recommended to us by friends who know Lima well as an enjoyable change from the delicious local cuisine. We were not disappointed. The classic French look and feel of the restaurant was matched by the wonderful menu choices. We were greeted in a friendly manner and the service was impeccable. Hervė himself was happy to explain the dishes... More

It is really a mystery that Hervé Bistro does not have more customers. (2 tables occupied when i went there for lunch). But I guess people want to try the peruvian cuisine and not the french while being in Lima - or living in Lima. That is a huge mistake! Hervé bistro is a restaurant with love to the food.... More

one of the best restaurants in Lima. The chef is deeply involved in each detail and gives the feeling that you are his personal guest.

This restaurant is excellent, it deserves a far higher rating than this! We had lunch at Herve, we were the only ones... However, the food was so good i will definitely come back and hope more people get to know this restaurant. There are quite some restaurants on this corner but Herve is for sure one to try while in... More

The food is excellent, the service is great and the presentation is superior. I've been twice and it was consistently wonderful. The staff is friendly, helpful and unobtrusive. The food presentation is beautiful and the flavor sublime.

We are travelling throughtout South America and he still says this is the best meal he has had and we have eaten at some lovely restaurants. Would recommend you go late (after... More

Nice surprise for a change of pace. Excellent french cuisine, meticulously served with attention to detail. The menu offers a wide range of options, combining some of the local ingredients with international adaptations that are very successfully achieved. Here and there one finds a hint of asian flavors and cuisine, but always with the elegance of a french touch. The... More
