You've got to try the Arroz Chauf de carne (Peruvian beef stir fry)! Very clean and the staff was very attentive. We arrived at 11:30 for lunch and within 30 minutes the placed was packed. Manager checked on how we enjoyed ourselves on the way out. Give it a try. You won't be disappointed.

We come here whenever we have a craving for good, tasty, moist chicken. The two sauces add alot of favor. The service is good but not great, but you get more than you pay for.

Being a native Latin American, I don't expect too much in ethnic restaurants in this area. This one was a delightful surprise. Located in a strip mall, away from all tourist areas, it caters to locals "in the know". The food is fresh, deliciously seasoned to perfection and served in eye pleasing arrangements. The fish ceviche brought me back to... More

The best thing I can say about La Limena is that everything about it is excellent. While visiting the area, found this restaurant on Tripadvisor and went based upon the reviews. From the friendly greeting upon entering this .small and casual restaurant, to the attentive service (Melvin the waiter), to the the deliciously tasting food (perfectly prepared and wonderfully seasoned),...

Tripadvisor rarely steers me wrong. I tried this with friends, based on reviews and it was wonderful. I would have never tried or even found this place without tripadvisor. I had a corn pudding sort of appetizer that was on special....delicious. I had the paella for dinner. It was not a huge as you get in some restaurants, but it... More

I have been a frequent diner at La Limena since 2007, before it became wildly popular. Over the years, the price has gone up and the portion size had gone down, but the quality of the food remained excellent. My absolute favorite is the trucha frita. It is flavorful and fried to perfection. The fins are so crispy that one... More

I love this place. Unfortunately I don't get to go very often, because we live about an hour away. It's in a shopping center with a bunch of other "ethnic" restaurants, but don't be fooled by the exterior. Inside is very clean, waiters are dressed professionally, and tables are set beautifully. The restaurant itself is small and can get very... More

The food, the service, the atmosphere , the owners everything make this restaurant a jewel in a very remote shopping plazza on the Pike. The ceviche, the yuca , the chicken everything was excellent. At lunch time the place was full, the people were happy and chatting and the bill .... Amazing... Worth the detour
