This restaurant can be considered expensive according to Peruvian standards. I'm not a foodie but this restaurant was really good and the presentation was amazing. I can finally tell my friends I experienced fine dining.

I went to this place when was ranked at 1st place or second, I don't remember. 2012? I am scrolling down and cannot see 2012 in when did I visit this place. The older date is Aug 2013, I went with my sister and her husband. When we were in there, all the atmosphere was contaminated by food odors, we... More

What will my review contribute to the reputation of a restaurant that is already world-renowned? All I can do, perhaps, is compare it to a few other places in Lima or around the world. If you're just going to dine at one high-end restaurant in Lima (first of all save up your cash so you can go to more places),... More

One of the best places to eat in Lima is you are really looking for gourmet food. The environment is very nice and specially suited for business conversations but also for couples if you are planning a nice dinner date

Book a table next to the window into the kitchen and watch the crew of chefs at work before the food is presented at your table. All was excellent but try the suckling goat.

I live less than a block from this resturant and had heard great things not to mention its recent ranking as the #15 ranked resturant in the WORLD. So I went into dinner with high hopes. The food turned out to be really good but not something that blew me away. The drinks were really unique and tasty but served... More

My wife and I came here for dinner with friends. We started with drinks form the bar and they were very good. For dinner, we ordered several items from the menu and found them all to be great. We were in a small private room, so did not get to enjoy the full ambiance of the place. One could easily... More

After taking a gourmet food tour of Lima, we had high expectations for our first meal in Peru. Central exceeded these expectations and then some! The restaurant is tucked away on a quiet street in the Miraflores district. We made a reservation and when we arrived we were promptly seated at our table. The restaurant itself is beautiful. Every table... More

We went to Central Restaurant with high expectations for a memorable evening given the very favorable reviews, and chosen as the best restaurant in Peru and supposedly one of the " very best in the world". Frankly disappointing. Reservations are necessary to be made well in advance and which is quite unusual in this city, not for one you wish... More

Dear Ines: We regret that we failed to provide you with a pleasantly memorable experience, and we apologize that your table was not properly prepared. Please note that we do allow a 15-minute grace period for reservations in case an unforeseen circumstance arises in which it isn't possible to inform us of a late arrival. It is also a pity... More
