This is one the best Peruvian restaurants in Miami. The food presentation is amazing, and taste unmatched. Chef Carlos Brescia has raised the bar for Peruvian cuisine in Miami.

The place is small, and decoration can be improved, but overall is a great restaurant. If you want to avoid the wait go off hours otherwise expect 40 minutes to get a table.

Great experience from the start! Arrived by 5pm on a Friday and got seated immediately! The restaurant itself is quite small and it feels a bit overcrowded with all the waitresses and waiters standing around but the service was nothing but great! As for the food, tiger's milk (ceviche juice) was very tasty, the "cuarentena" 4 ceviches was so incredible and worth every penny and the Jalea Mixta just to die for! Pisco Sours were great too! I would recommend this restaurant and can't wait until they expand! Go early rather than later in the evening....no wait time!

As far as good food goes, this restaurant surpasses just good; it is superb.
The presentation of the different dishes is artistic and eye catching and perfectly served by uniformed staff.
Overall quality is excellent. I have seen Carlos Brescia, owner, always monitoring all that goes on and comes out of the kitchen. He has achieved a wonderful mix of highly beautiful and well prepared fish and meat dishes.
I have mentioned the intensity of the loud music to Carlos a few times and he immediately brings the volume to a more pleasant level for conversation.

We live in Miami for 27 years , Dr limon is the best Peruvian restaurant in Kendall area, we love the ceviches , the natural juices , the causas ( made with potatos) and the Dr moreno (my favorite grilled octopus ) ; the restaurant is no too big that's why i prefer to go for lunch during the week.

Service was excellent from the hostess at the front door on to the staff, Our waitress Vanessa was very knowledgeable and made our dining experience excellent, The food was incredible, my wife had the "lomo salteado" said it was delicious as she claimed it was the best she's had in Miami, I had the Churrasco which was excellent as well. Can't wait to go back and try the Ceviche Loco as the table next to us kept raving about it, We ended the meal with their Dulce Leche dessert to satisfy our sweet tooth which was excellent as well. Bottom line for classic Peruvian meal with a modern twist it doesn't get better DR LIMON !!!! ooops and Don't forget to order the sangria laboratorio , it's a special treat.
