“Two failures to provide proper service - awful evening”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

Well, the concierge at our hotel, the Crowne Plaza, tried to book a reservation at two other restaurants and finally was able to do so at this establishment. Based upon his repeated calls to us, we are sure he did make the reservation. The hotel even gave us a card for two free drinks at dinner. When we arrived, the young ladies at the door insisted no reservation had been made. At that time, we wondered a bit but having traveled half way across Lima, we stayed and a table was made ready for us within 15 minutes. The meals we had were fine, but really not worth the high prices charged by this chic establishment. Before we ate our dessert, we had an assistant manager call our driver (who worked at the Crowne Plaza, as taxis in Lima can be a poor proposition, if you're not a local - overcharging and in rare cases, robbery). He returned and advised us the taxi would come in 15 minutes. Forty minutes later, another assistant manager walked up to us, as we stood on the street in front of the restaurant and I requested he call the taxi again. I made sure I spoke with our taxi driver and he advised he would be there within 15 minutes. When our taxi arrived about 10 minutes later, our driver stated that he had only received the last call. Two breakdowns in service on one night causes me to conclude the restaurant is most deficient in helping visiting tourists. Also, one of the two English menus provided to us was sorted in a totally random fashion with entree pages and appetizer pages placed randomly in a manner that made it impossible to use (the menu is at least 16 pages long). I almost suggested the management ought to have someone who really is fluent in English check the menus, but as a visitor didn't want to upset them.

“great ceviche”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2013

Definitely one has to order the 3 ceviche appetizer!

You will love it.

The rest is also great but the 3 ceviche was a great way of starting the experience.

“Trendy, Sophisticated, Lots of Energy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

This is one of the most fashionable spots in Lima, with sophisticated fusion food, good service, and excellent decoration. The drinks are also great. Highly recommended.

“Double check your reservation!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2012

We've been to Lima 27 more than once, either walk-in or a same day reservation (Not a great idea if you absolutely must eat here). Food, environment, etc. are all great and what you might expect from a restaurant in this price range.

However, this time we made a reservation well in advance for our anniversary. What a surprise to arrive and find out the restaurant is closed. We made the most of it, but it was a huge let-down. I would expect more from a place that is otherwise fantastic.

“Beautifully, delicious peruvian gastronomy for any occasion!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2012

Set in a classic mansion in the upscale district of San Isidro, this is a great place for a drink at on of the two bars (inside and outside) followed by one of Lima’s best gastronomical experiences. Alternatively, you can also enjoy great cocktails and “Peruvian tapas” in the lounge area.
The cuisine is refined Peruvian with lots of innovation on the fringes (carrot crumble with curry ice cream!). All the dishes are excellent, from a classic coriander parfumed Arroz con Pato (wonderfully crisp duckling) to more innovative Peruvian-sino fusion. The typical Amazon fish called Paitche was one of the best I’ve had in Lima!
Before or after a meal here, take a stroll along the fancy shopping street of Conquistadores or a leisurely walk through the El Olivar park. Both are classic experiences not to be missed in San Isidro!
