Peruvian
Peru comes to London with LIMA, a new restaurant concept presenting Peruvian cuisine in a contemporary style.

The exciting flavours created by Head Chef, Robert Ortiz and Virgilio Martinez (Executive Chef and ranked #5 in the World 50 Best List and #1 in Latin America's 50 Best Restaurants list) have won us many happy customers. And while our diners are most important, we have had many favourable reviews from critics (“An almost unimprovable meal” – Matthew Norman, The Daily Telegraph) and numerous industry awards.

Lima London was first awarded a Michelin star in 2013 – the first and only Peruvian restaurant to achieve this.

Please note that children under 12 are welcome in the restaurant until 7 pm.

Just the best meal ever! Staff were attentive without being overbearing and the food was out of this world good. Thoroughly recommend and make sure you leave room for dessert!

We were quite disappointed with our food. Feel like quite overpriced given the quantity and taste.

Starter and main was fantastic but I was a little disappointed with the dessert. Will be looking forward to try a different one next time.

The pisco sour cocktail was gorgeous as were the starters (prawn tostada, tuna ceviche and salmon tiradito). Unfortunately I was slightly underwhelmed by my suckling pig main course. It tasted more like pulled pork that you can get anywhere - not really very special. Overall I enjoyed the experience but felt it was not great vfm

All in all a very pleasant experience with the early dinner deal. Perhaps I could have had more varied flavours, but that is more down to me than the reduced menu. I enjoyed myself, the pisco sour was excellent and the wine suggestions were spot on.

Food was excellent, especially the starters. Service was poor—lots of waiting to be served, unfriendly staff. We were seated downstairs which was dead.

if I were to judge the dishes only - OMG Great!

Unfortunately service and price brings the judgement a bit down.

Excellent location and great service. Food looked very pretty and my pork was well cooked. Rest of the food lacked flavour and taste. To be honest, it was not bad food, but the value for money just did not add up. I am unlikely to be back even though I feel that we should be supporting creativity and talent.

We dined from the Peru Experience lunch menu which was a great way to find out about the food - it was our first time there. Thoroughly enjoyed all the courses, which were beautifully presented and all very tasty.
