“Great first meal in Peru”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

Like the other reviewers write, the place is so worth the effort it takes to find it. The menu is limited to 3 choices. We both loved ours. We were also very lucky to be introduced to Chicha morada, juice made from purple corn. Don't leave Peru without trying it!!! Other patrons all looked like local office workers. Our waiter was a doll! Couldn't say enough good things about this place. Lonely planet says meals are 16 sole. It's 18. But worth it. Absolutely.

“A Perfect Start”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

This restaurant was the perfect first meal in Lima - the location is great, quite close to the Plaza de Armas (though a bit easy to miss, so use a sharp eye!), the service was impeccable and the food was delicious - not to mention affordable! Great for vegetarians and carnivores alike.

“Authentic Peruvian Meals”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012

This little restaurant with only 3 rooms really surprised us on a recent trip to Lima. Always on the lookout for "real" restaurants with an authentic look and feel, serving traditional meals, without tourists, satisfaction is hard to find. But Domus was all of that and more! The food was fantastic, tasty, beautifully served. Service was great even though none of the staff spoke English. If you want a real Peruvian experience, this is it!!

“Don't be fooled by the look.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2012

This place is amazing. 3 separate rooms under an old arch way. They don't like reservation, they don't serve dinner, and you have very very limited choice what to eat. Basically you eat what they cook for the day, a fixed manu. The choices are written on a blackboard outside the eatery.
Very limited English, but the food is very good and very inexpensive. Give it a try while you are at central Lima.I

“Nice place in Downtown Lima”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2011

If you are taking in the sites of the historical center of Lima, this is an excellent place to stop fr a casual lunch. They do fixed price price combination menus, with a few choices for starter, main & desert. The price was very reasonable and the portions were large. We could have shared one lunch for both of us. It is an old school place, waiters who have probably been there forever, but very friendly and casual.
