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

LIMA London opened in the heart of Fitzrovia in 2012 as a window to Peru’s vibrant culinary scene and was the first Peruvian restaurant to win the acclaimed star from Michelin. The dishes combine ingredients native to South America with seasonal produce found in the British Isles – all showcasing a modern taste of Peru’s capital.

LIMA has claimed numerous industry awards as well as many favourable reviews from critics (“An almost unimprovable meal” – Matthew Norman, The Daily Telegraph)

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

    Great service, food was nice, great presentation but for the price I would expect outstanding tasting dishes. Ambience - just dim the lights you could make it a lot more luxe feel by the lighting changes. Otherwise really enjoyed!

    Meat was first over cooked and when it came back it was raw. Would not go back. Food was not Michelin worthy.

    Enjoyed the London Restaurant Festival menu for Lunch at Lima. The food was really delicious. The presentation and portions were dainty. The main course fish was excellent and the desserts particularly mouth-watering. Service was friendly and prompt. The venue is light and attractive, but quite small, so we found noise levels were at times above moderate. I would gladly revisit but not for a quiet chat over my pisco sour.

    Staff were wonderful and super helpful - 10/10 service - can't complain!!. We thought the food was also tasty but a bit trying too hard with the "fine dining" presentation and portions were small. We left more than £100 pounds there for 2 and weren't full by the end of the meal. The restaurant was tidy and clean but could do with some more Peru characteristics, it would definitely put the whole dining experience to an other level. It was OK for once but I don't think I will recommend this restaurant or come back again, sadly it's a bit forgettable.

    Food was great but service was extremely slow, they forgot about our order for main course (we could see staff arguing and looking our way, super pro:) Long after we finished mains they brought the desserts menu, after a 10 minutes wait my wife changed her mind and wanted a side dish because she was felling hungry again but by the time they came back to us we just wanted the bill. Food is reasonably priced but service was very sloppy.
