The environment of this restaurant is horribly outdated and falling apart. The inside of the restaurant looks like it was really rocking back in the 1970's and early 80's, but the customers disppeared and they never changed it or maintained - the decor is way outdated, old, ugly and unkept. They put a CORNY, silly flag at your table to represent the country your from and they think you'll find it neat to look around and see all the different nationalities represented - but it's just stupid. It may have been cool back in the day (70's and 80's) when Lima was so third world, that all the rich foreignors would come to place like this, but times have changed and this place didn't keep up. The decor deserves this long explanation - it's pretty bad.
The food is just as worse. I have been in Lima for 3 months and I have tried a TON of restaurants and investigated which ones are good - all based on personal trials and recommendations for LOCALS. And every person I have spoken to has told me "Costa Verde is old and not good - avoid it" They right. The food is HORRIBLE. The ingredients tasted like cardboard and were not fresh. The one and only positive aspect was that they had an amazing key lime pie - but that was it! The rest of the experience was horrible - and to top it all off, this has to be one of the most expensive restaurants in Lima - amazingly rediculous. Only unknowing tourists keep this place in business. Trust me - avoid the reviews of ignorant tourists. The locals hate it for a reason.
AVOID at all costs.
