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.

We had the tasting menu, each dish very well explained, all presented exceptionally well and on warm plates where appropriate. Great combination of tastes on each dish. The service was friendly and very efficient.

Food beautifully presented and really delicious. Great colours!

Service attentive and friendly without being too overbearing.

Could perhaps do with refresh of the fit out, but that wouldn't stop me from coming back.

Excellent food, very attentive service but at a price. The beef was outstanding, the cod maybe a little undercooked for my taste but it is subjective. There are really no reasonably priced wines on the menu. We were not offered the set menu even though we were within the time period for it and having ordered a carafe of wine and two glasses (which is a bottle), we were charged £7 more than the bottle. Overall with a discretionary service charge added to the bill and then the option to add a gratuity on the card machine (it does annoy me when restaurants try and double bill this), it was too pricy for the undoubted quality of the food.

The waiter tried to take our starter , we said we hadn’t finished then someone else just came and took it away . The starters were also around £13 each for a tiny plate, maybe 20g of tuna. I know it’s a Michelin star restaurant but I still want some food. The service was impersonal and rushed . We wanted to take our time and enjoy our food and maybe order a bottle of wine to share and dessert but it seemed like they just wanted us to gobble it down and leave as soon as possible.

The waitress was excellent! She took the time to talk me through the menu as I have special dietary requirements. Nothing was too much trouble.

The food was much better than it was on my previous visit. The best dish was the pineapple dessert.

Portions small
Never have I had to order more food post Michelin starred meal - I was still hungry!
Wine good

Overall, we had a good time at Lima. The food was fast and fresh with good quality ingredients. This used to be our favourite restaurant a few years ago, however we feel its lost a bit of its finesse. The scallop tostada was a flavour sensation, however the baked celeriac, beetroot salad and pork belly didn't quite have the same level of complex, intense flavours that we used to love about Lima.
