Good food, great Bartender
Mar 2020 • Friends
There were 8 of us staying 2 nights at the Swissotel Lima and on our second night we had drinks and dinner at the bar. While the food was very good, our waiter/bartender, Luis Rodriguez, was phenomenal. Great service and very skilled. He came up with a couple of custom drinks on the spot and let us name them. A visit well remembered

NOPE!
Dec 2018
Every time I arrive to a restaurant or bar they all start with a 5 points as my rule. How you loose points along the night is according to my standards, hospitality, cleanliness and off course the food and drinks. In essence 1) you are welcome, 2) invited to a clean table and 3) enjoy the flavors away.
The lobby bar at the Swiss hotel was a disaster from the beginning till the end. Disconnection from the bartender and the Waitress Sheila couldn’t be more evident. Our waitress was completely disconnected from her only 2 tables to attend (we were the first table). We ordered a Rusty nail and an old fashion. The bartender took 30 mins to prepare the first drink which actually never came because after all that time she got informed that an ingredient was missing (tramboi) so let’s order a Pisco sour instead, no problem there, in the meantime, an old fashion arrived, the drink was lots of ice, soda and bourbon CERO bitters. It was send back and second arrived which rather tasted like n old fashion with the ice completely melted on it , very watery (you know what I mean). At that time arrived the Pisco sour and well, time to drink whatever was served. Food order was placed and honestly for those prices a boring chicken pesto sandwich and plane aji de gallina you are better just going to any buffet. At this point I couldn’t believe the indifference from the waiter and lack of skills of a bartender working in a bar lol. Still tried to give them at least 3 points and tried asking for the bar manager. I was told he was on vacation. I tried asking for the restaurant (la locanda) manager since sometimes they double as bar and restaurant manager in some places. I was told that Oscar stoped working there and new one was busy. Well I tried, we then, settle for reality and tried to enjoy whatever we were experiencing there so, let’s enjoy the live piano player... NOPE, he was stopping songs in the middle to answer his phone or talking with the security guys in the lobby while playing. We learned at least about their vacation plans and some gossip about employees in the hotel. A solid NOPE for this place. Sorry. Check in the pictures the differences on the drinks.

Paloma is an amazing Waitress
Mar 2018 • Friends
So we were staying at the Swissotel for five nights and literally every night (including our first night where we flew in at midnight) we were at the Lobby Bar drinking and eating.

Paloma, who was our waitress for most of the nights, was honestly the best service we received in the entirety of our Peru trip. Even though our Spanish is nonexistent, her English is top notch and she would talk to us about how our trip was going, giving us tips about where to go, what to do. She was definitely engaged with our trip and made us feel welcomed every time.

In terms of food and drink, we consumed almost everything the Lobby Bar had to offer and it was all great, no complaints on any of it (we even ordered things from the other restaurants as well)

Lobby Bar became such a ritual for us, even after getting back to the hotel late at night after a day of sightseeing and eating, we'd shower and then head down to the Lobby Bar for drinks and more food!

*Sidenote* Some nights there's a piano player and he plays some great contemporary songs, it was pleasing.

Had dinner and lunch here and the food is delicious! The staff is very courteous and tried their best to speak English because my Spanish is very poor!

The calamari is to die for
Apr 2017
I stayed in this hotel and this bar is really convenient. The drinks are good and the food is delicious. The calamari was to die for. It may be one of the best things I ate in Lima, from the whole time I was there. The drinks were good, too. Generally, everything is pricey, but it serves the business crowd that stays in the hotel.

Really good bar service

One of the better piso sours plus they can make pretty much anything. Pretty lively but you can often find a place that is quieter

Classic bar in San Isidro
Apr 2015 • Friends
The bar at the Swissotel is the perfect location for a well-made classic cocktail. It's a classic hotel bar and a good spot for people watching. There is often a piano player, which may not be to everyone's taste, but adds to the ambiance. The waitresses are very friendly and seem to speak English well. We prefer the nearby Bar Ingles, but this is a nice option as well.
