Description: Sophie is a Peruvian taperia that presents a free creative cuisine with advanced techniques and first class sustainable products. We have the most important Cold Bar in Lima where seafood and fish predominate, which can be accompanied by a wide selection of drinks from our Bar. Our Tapas or ¨Petit Classics¨ are made very easy to share by their size and fun and casual design. The background dishes range from daily creations to our artisan meats. All this in an atmosphere with great taste in design and a casual atmosphere.

“Easily would have paid twice as much and still called it a great meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

Actually saw the first review in a Frommers guidebook. I double checked in trip advisor and saw 4.5 stars from 19 reviewers. Well here's the 20th review and this was a wonderful meal. 3 of us dined, including drinks, sharing 4 plates and dessert and the tab came to under $40 pp after tax and tip.

The owner, Lucho, was there when we dined and he spent over an hour of his own time teaching us about Peruvian gastronomy.

It's a great little bistro with fantastic food preparation and presentation.

Thanks Lucho!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

Sophie is a unique place in Lima to enjoy peruvian gourmet food. The hosts: Diego, Lucho and Vanessa are very friendly and will give you their special recommendations. You can try any appetizer, main course, dessert or cocktail, all of them are spectacular....

If you want to spend a great and unforgettable experience tasting peruvian food, Sophie is a MUST!

“Highly recommend it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

Some of the appetizers I like are Causa de la Abuela, and tamalito verde, Delicious!! .....and Tumi is one of my favorite drink :)
the athmosphere is great and the service is perfect. The menu is something that you want to have all, reason for comming in again soon. Great for couples and better with a large group to share this magic peruvian food.

“excellent combination of great food, good drinks and a cool atmosphere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012

Sophie is definitely a place like few in Lima. Only to enter the place and you will transportate into restaurants and bars of the most cosmopolitan and cool cities around the world. The food is just great and the drinks are top. So , if you're close to Miraflores or not so, it pays to shop around!
