It is no surprise to find that this restaurant is number 15 out of 50 restaurants in the entire World. We did not try the degustation menu, but decided to choose a three course meal instead. It was simply sensational. From the home baked buns at the start of our meal to the desserts and chocolate treats at the conclusion... More

I was very excited to go to a world-class restaurant, something I don't treat myself to often. Central delivered on every level. They accommodated us as vegetarians, and the food was simply spectacular, both in presentation, taste and little extra touches at both the beginning and end of the meal. The atmosphere of the restaurant was perfect for us -... More

Can see why it is rated amongst the world's best. Great atmosphere - open kitchen, excellent degustation that coped with my wife's allergies incredibly well. The garden upstairs is a must to see where so much of the produce is sourced from - excellent dedicated team in the kitchen. Only downside was the matching wine set - the international European...

We first submitted a reservation request about 2months prior. No glitch, was responded the next day confirming the reservation. This restaurant uses local peruvian ingredients from sea to sky. We had the tasting menu and I think it's a mistake not to order this when you fly all the way here to try this restaurant. If michelin rates south american... More

We tried to book this restaurant well in advance. Since we don't speak spanish and were visiting from abroad, we tried to book online. The online booking process is basically a form and then they get back to you. They only got back to us a day before the requested reservation - only to tell us they were booked up... More

Everything, from the butter they land aside the warm, handmade bread was spectacular. We screwed up our reservation online, but one of the barman (gracias David) took care of us, working with the hostess to get us a table while having us experience the best Pisco sour ever. The meal was incredible. We had pulpo and 2 different meru, all... More

The food was very creative and well served. They were quite nice about splitting our main dish and serving each of us with the beautiful designed plate of food.

This is a superb restaurant and very deserving of its recent World Ranking. Expensive by Peruvian standards but incredible value if you're used to London pricing. We all enjoyed 3 courses of exquisitely presented food that tasted as good as it looked. Thoroughly recommend the suckling pig. The wine list was impressive with a superb by the glass selection.
