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.

We had dinner at Sophie quite by chance, just because it was close to our hotel. To our surprise, we had a wonderful time. The place is cosy and beautiful, the food is surprisingly delicious! The price was fair. Very good. Don't miss it if you are in Lima!

After a long day we were just looking for a nice place that served a few traditional dishes. Fondue to start, and a main of Lomo Saltaldo and Aji de Gallina we're perfect. Wine list was fine but not extensive. Atmosphere and music were great. North Americans will find it like home.

First time there but won't hesitate to go back.

Thank David C

I live close to Sophie's and love the intimate and cozy atmosphere. It is one of the few kitchens in Lima that will serve you after 10 PM (sometimes, if you are lucky, later than that!) and actually be worthwhile. I have taken visitors and business acquaintances and they loved the food. I have been there for a comforting bowl of soup on a winter's night and also for a late nightcap with champagne. Lucho, the owner, and his wife Vanessa make it always a point of having you feel at home. Their cabrito lechal is amazing.

What you would find on the Left Bank if the chef was Peruvian. The name does not lie: bistro ambiance, presenting the variety of classic Peruvian food. I found them when they were still under construction, and always go back and bring out of towners. Lucho is the consummate owner with a history and story for every dish, as well as a great wine to wash it down.

While the entres are all some of the best I have had of the classics like Arroz con Pato, Cabrito a la Norteña, Carapulcra, it's the appetizers that show the variety of Peruvian cuisine. Because they come in small portions, you can taste most of them in one sitting. I especially love the combination of delicately fried calamari with hummus. Who would have known??

While Peru is exploding, Sophie's gives you a taste of where it all came from.
