Description: The greatest wealth that Latin America contributed to the world was not gold, but it's food. Not just its cuisine, but more importantly, the ingredients! Many of the emblematic European dishes we commonly know and love would not exist without the ingredients cultivated in Latin America and mainly, Peru. With a spectacular view of the Nichupte Lagoon and located in the heart of Cancun's famed hotel zone, Lima 12 05 Peruvian Cuisine and Steakhouse is the first 100% Peruvian restaurant in all of Southern Mexico.

“A very interesting meal”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

Peruvian food has a reputation as the best in south america, and this restaurant provides a good introduction to it. The sauces in particular and delicate and flavorful, not the same flavors you will find in other restaurant.

The prices are reasonable, maybe a little better value that equivalent Hotel Zone restaurants. Surprisingly, the entrees are almost the same price as the appetizers. Either they are a steal or the appetizers are a little expensive. Portions are adequate.

“Finest food in Cancun”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

Delightful place, friendly and helpful staff and the best food we ate in Cancun. It's new and the retro decor & loos are top notch, I was surprised by the number of TVs but somehow they made it more authentic. We sat on the balcony with lagoon views. Pisco sours & chicha morada with the house made crisps & delicious sauces a beautiful start, the crisps were re-filled so don't get too full to early as you'll miss out on some outstanding flavours. Ceviche a delight of fresh citrus flavour and the beef stir fry as main was intense and rich in flavour. The offering of choice of the four little deserts is original and they are worth trying. My only criticism is the kitchen must slow down the service as each course came straight after the other, giving a break between each course will help a relaxed atmosphere & customer satisfaction. Still it is the best restaurant we visited in Cancun as everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal.

“Peruvian food...who knew it was so delicious!”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

While in Cancun, we spent over a week walking by Lima 12 05 and asking ourselves what Peruvian food was. Finally, we decided to find out and we were very happy we did. From the décor, to the restaurant staff, to the food, the experience was amazing. The chicken skewers and parmesan scallops were by far the best thing we had, but overall everything we tried was great. Even my very picky niece found the pasta with steak to be to her liking and devoured every last bite. The desserts are also yummy, but it’s hard to save room since the appetizers, main entrees and drinks are so good!

“Great experience!”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

Our 2 families were looking for a new place to try, and the TripAdvisor reviews led us here...and we're glad they did!

Armando, the manager, was welcoming, and Sammy, our waiter was terrific!

There is a lot of variety of food on the menu -- we ordered several dishes that were easy to share. The food is not too spicy, but very flavorful. And the pisco sours are wonderful!
