Overall a great night at Bravo Restobar. The ambience really set the tone with beautiful decor, a nice outside seating option, and music played at the appropriate level (sometimes an issue in Lima). The menu appeared to be a fusion of Peruvian-Italian-and some Asian. Also, for those looking for a bar it is definitely more of a restaurant.
We kicked off the night around 7:30 which is still early by Peruvian standards so we were some of the first guests of the night. The service was great, very attentive bordering on hovering at times, but when you've got an empty restaurant I let it slide. They have a pretty solid cocktail list, but the waiter didn't understand what a dirty martini was. After a consultation with the bartender they got the drink right.
We started with the octopus carpaccio and oriental tiradito appetizer. The tiradito is a thinly sliced raw fish, somewhere between sashimi and ceviche. Both were delicious. Our entrees were the Ossobuco and the Criollo Surf & Turf. Both were perfectly prepared, the latter being a take on a traditional Peruvian dish.
One knock, they charge you for what appears to be complimentary bread and humus. Other than that a great spot on San Isidrio's Via Conquistadores.
