Was not too certain of what to expect after reading some of the reviews but very glad I made the visit. Having been unable to contact the restaurant by phone to make a reservation we made our way to try our luck. On arrival we were greeted warmly and welcomed in without any fuss. Decour is light and airy with... More

I love Gaston Acurio's restaurants in general. The ambiance is always great, and the service is pretty good. I also admire him as an entrepreneur. I found, however, that in this case, we spent too mkuch for what we were given. The food was pretty good but the amounts served were very limited. I ordered "cuy" (Guinea pig), it was... More

We went to the La Barra side of the restaurant and sat at the bar. I was a little hesitant but was quickly proved wrong. We had the best seat in the house, overlooking the kitchen and watching the show. The food is prepped and cooked in an open kitchen and you can interact with the staff in the kitchen... More

This restaurant is amazing and worth your time. The location in San Isidro is beautiful. It was formerly built by the Spaniards and sits in the heart of the city. The food was terrific. The service outstanding and the experience delightful. Make reservations. If you can't get into the restaurant because of the lengthy reservations demands, ask to be seated... More

As a famous restaurant brand, this Peruvian restaurant didn't disappoint us, we had good wine, delicious food, nice music, reasonable price and professional service, also our waiter could understand pretty much English although speaks little, we really enjoyed this meal.

We had an early flight so we opted for the La Barra to order a la carte instead of the tasting menu. The open kitchen was fun and the food very innovative. My favorite dish was a ceviche with avocado ice cream. My husband had the cut treated peking duck style and loved it. This restaurant moved in early 2014... More

Since nothing on the menu was familiar to us and being adventurous eaters my wife and I shared 3 items recomended to us by the host. The atmosphere was very nice with a jazz band playing without being overly loud. We could watch the chefs prepare food from our table and could tell they enjoy their job from the look... More

We were able to get an evening table at the Bar (a sort of annex) in the morning. The room is large, with hard surfaces so the noise level was pretty high. We ordered the Aueropuerto, which was a mixture of fried and boiled noodles with an interesting sauce. It was supposed to have squid and pork cheeks mixed in... More

I liked the décor and the service is everything you'd expect from Lima's top restaurant. But I am a bit old fashioned and like a bigger meal

Went here to see what's the hype about especially with their yearly ranking in the world's best restaurant list. Since the restaurant is a whole mansion divided into sections with different styles and ambience, we decided to go to the La Restaurante (with ala carte menu) and wasn't impressed with how they handled our reservation. They asked us to book... More
