The food here is beyond amazing. This was seriously the best dining experience ever🌟. From the food to the service, everything was really great and tasty. What's also really unique is that all the ingredients are from all over Peru!

First off, i loved every second of my trip to Central! But this is for serious foodies and open, adventurous eaters. This is not "normal" food. But it is amazing. I did the full 18 course mater elevation tasting menu with the wine pairing. It was by far the best dining experience i have ever had. The food is delicious... More

Tried to book online but were told it was fully booked but we were on a waiting list for a table at 7.30. We tried to find out where we were on the waiting list but no reply so we thought we'd turn up and see. We arrived at 7.30 only to find a queue and it didn't open until... More

On my vacation to Lima we spent one of the evenings enjoying the degustation menu at Central. 13 courses, all beautifully presented in the most unique ways. Complete art forms in every single course and like all art - it is subjective. I had planned a complete gastronomic vacation, this was our last dinner in Lima and so I expected... More

This was a very enjoyable evening as entertainment. I had come hoping to experience fancy variations on regional dishes, but really, I doubt there is much relation between what was on my plate to what you would actually eat at a specific elevation. That aside, what we did get served was pretty amazing overall. My only real complaint about the... More

I reserved our tasting (was only able to get afternoon reservation) months in advance of this highly respected and coveted restaurant. After having read so many wonderful reviews, we were really excited for this dining experience......that's where the excitement ended. What a let down. From our table (we were sat near the entrance to the dining area, next to stations... More

The service was well educated and the dishes were explained by detail. The presentation was good in a gourmet style. But very expensive, not worth the price, being considered # 4 in the world. Being native from Lima, I certainly know that peruvian food is truly amazing. It was indeed an experience, unfortunately wasn't the food offered at this restaurant.... More

We were lucky enough to get reservations during our trip to Peru. After all, it is rated the fourth best restaurant in the world for 2016, and the #1 restaurant in Latin America. First, the restaurant is small, seating only 55 diners, located on a nondescript street in a nondescript building, however very nice inside with a glass wall separating... More
