Here on business, my host brought me to Jose Antonio for lunch. This is near Miraflores district, and wow, the food was terrific. They have a buffet, and my host said it was good, but better to order from the menu. The buffet looked terrific, and was well attended by the locals (a good sign) My host ordered an appetizer,...

Jose Antonio is a perfect place to get the classic Peruvian dishes without the novoandino dishes. The aji de gallina is to die for, as well as their classic lomo saltado. The restaurant is decorated with colonial and Peruvian artifacts. The food and atmosphere is well worth the cost of the meal.

We visited this restaurant after a taxing trip from a Galapagos cruise via Guayaquil and Quito. The welcome and service were warm; the food hearty and well-prepared.

They offer all the most known and unknown peruvian food classics. Nice place to go to, good meals to taste and to share. You can go there without hesitating. Un cadre colonial agréable. Les grands classiques de la cuisine péruvienne. Bonne adresse, sans surprise (ni bonne, ni mauvaise d'ailleurs!!)

Very elegant from the valet service all the way to the tablecloths and impressive decorations of authentic colonial and more recent artifacts worth a few pennies. That didn't influence my demanding appetite and curiosity of the quality and taste of their cuisine. A good friend of mine who shares the same culinary weaknesses as mine invited me allegedly to "a... More

They recommend us this restaurant, and to be honest I was expecting more, a very traditional place in Lima, Peru. The food is traditional and fare, but not out of this world.

Trad. The best "Lomo Saltado" (cook-up of beef, onions, tomato) in Lima the way your (Peruvian) Grandmother used to make it. Or for a new twist on Lomo Saltado go to Gastón Acurio's Tanta restaurant.

This restaurant is vastly overrated. It serves poor to average two star Peruvian food at five star prices. Service is average at best. An example of what I mean is their fish. "What sort of fish do you use?", I asked. "You have a choice of Lenguado o Tilapia", answered the waiter. "What!!! Tilapia!!! That cheapest of cheap farmed, frozen... More

Mu\y review addresses specifically the José Antonio located at La Floresta con Primavera. Most of my reviews quote "Very good" or "Excellent" but if I share my experiences, is has to reflect the facts to the Tripadvisor readers. It was a bad experience compared to the reputation and cost in that place. The house is very nice and stylish, with... More
