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.
