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

For our weekly Friday dinner tonight ( 3.28.14), my companion and I went to La Limena based on the recommendations of his office mates. We arrived early about 4:30 p.m. and did not have any problems locating the restaurant and finding a parking space. We gave this restaurant " Very Good" rating due to the following reasons: 1. Quality of... More

Get there early or risk waiting a while in line. We arrived before 6 pm on a Saturday evening and were seated immediately. The Pisco Sour (a drink I'd enjoyed in Peru) was excellent and the meal was first rate. Parking can get tight in the shopping center (Limena is located at the back of it) so if you find... More

We had to wait in line a long time on a Saturday night but everyone was in a good mood. They let you order your beer or Pisco Sour while you wait. We were on a time constraint so looked at the menus while we waited and then just ordered right away once we were seated. (Good trick.) The food... More

We had a wonderful meal here on Saturday evening. The service was incredible. Our waiter was Dustin and he couldn't have been more helpful making suggestions. The Pisco Sour was wonderful and the ceviche was the best I have ever had. My husband had the Osso Busco and I had the grilled trout. Both were incredible. Go for the food... More

Really loved my meal here, which was a beef steak rubbed with Peruvian spices. There were so many great menu options that it was tough to choose! The service here was great, and the manager/owner came over to ask how things were and asked if it was my first time there. When I said yes, he gave me two small... More
