Floral by LIMA is the younger sibling to its award-winning sister restaurant LIMA London, and is located in the heart of Covent Garden. The kitchen, led by Head Chef Adrian Sanchez, offers a contemporary Peruvian menu designed for sharing. The restaurant was awarded two AA Rosettes and a 5-Star review from Time Out.

In addition to the restaurant, the venue holds The Lost Alpaca, a fun and lively Latin American bar. They serve the best spirits and mixology the continent has to offer, all accompanied by Peruvian bar snacks and the sounds of Latin America.

    Lovely time, great food, nice atmosphere. My only small critique was the slight incomplete explanation of the “how”/recommended approach to the menu with sharing. We had a fabulous meal, but we did have to make some guesswork on how many of each course et al. Very minor though, would totally recommend to friends.

    I booked a table at 6pm. When we got there the AC was at full cold temperature. The waiter who served us was not very friendly: he kept poring water and they were clearing the table as soon as we finished eating. My friend asked him not to remove one dish but he removed all cutlery and when we told him she needed cutlery to finish her rice he said he would bring new ones in a quite annoyed way. Good was average and very small portions and pricey. But the surprise was when we were asked to leave after two hours because they had more bookings. At no point we were told we only had the table for two hours and it was not stated on the booking. We paid the bill and left and no one thanked us or said goodbye to us which is the minimum you would expect when paying (including the discretionary service charge) for a service which in this occasion was far by acceptable. I would definitely not recommend this restaurants and definitely not come back.

    Dear Silvana We are very sorry you feel that way. After investigated it, check the CCTV and have a chat the server, is a must to say that you didn't wanted to order anything until 40 minutes after you arrived. The server has to make sure that you are looked after, which he did, but it's difficult to serve customers when someone is crying and refusing to order. You can also find the time stated on your confirmation email, which is 2 hours, however, we gave you an extra 17 minutes. Kind regards

    Had been to the original Lima and loved it. This new branch in Covent Garden had the same zingy food and friendly service, though not quite as atmospheric. Still a good option in that part of town though. Would have been 5 stars had they not added a 12.5% service charge and then prompted a tip - not cool.

    Very nice food although a bit pricey in relation to the portions size. While starters have a more Peruvian “touch” the mains are dishes you could find in other type of restaurants (e.g.French). Staff is very nice and helpful addressing all your questions and requests. I would definitely go back.

    Food was lovely with a fresh feel. Portions are very small. That was ok for us but may not be for others. It gets very noisy later into the evening, but earlier it’s a nice buzz. The server was a bit deadpan, I wouldn’t say impolite, but not friendly at all. Drinks menu is very limited imo, and servers do not have a lot of knowledge of available drinks and spirits.

    Absolutely incredible meal. One of the best i have had for a while. My partner is also a real foody and was blown away. The food was delicious, well presented and flavours balanced perfectly. The drinks were great, can't go wrong with a Pisco sour in a Peruvian restaurant, although i have to say the flavoured versions were better. The service was great for the most part although towards the end of the meal, as the restaurant emptied it became more sporadic. This didnt ruin the meal though and will definitely be back as well as visiting the original Lima in London.

    45+mins just to get an order of drinks. Over one hour and finally received 3 drinks! The waitress forgot to ask if there were any allergies me and my guests had, which resulted in my friend going to A&E due to a severe reaction to Brazilian nuts, which were contained in a dish we ordered. Minimal fuss or concern from staff - no antihistamines or similar alternatives in first aid kit. One of my friends had to run to a boots and buy medication. Portions are miniscule and lack flavour. Not going back again, so poor.

    I was a bit disappointed with the food, maybe my expectations were too high knowing that this is a Virgilio Martinez restaurant. The ceviche is not the best one I’ve tried and pisco sour was very liquid/ with not consistency.
