Top 10 Restaurants in Peru

  1. 1. Top 10 Restaurants in Peru Posted by Maureen Santucci - Guest Blogger on 01st, November 2012 Top 10 Restaurants in Peru By Maureen Santucci More and more, Peru is becoming known as one of the best places to go for gastronomy in South America. While most of the finest restaurants can be found in Lima, there are some great choices elsewhere, such as the Incan capital city of Cusco. Even in tiny Aguas Calientes, at the base of Machu Picchu, you can find at least one place that is well worth splurging a bit. Best Restaurant In Peru | Places to eat in Peru Volunteering In Peru Rafael in Lima is considered to be one of the best restaurants in a city known for its cuisine. So popular, you will want to make your reservation well in advance possibly before even leaving your home country. One of the highlights is the fish, brought in fresh daily. It’s located at San Martin 300 in Miraflores. Lunch is Monday through Friday from 1 to 3:30 pm; dinner Monday through Saturday 8 pm – 12 am. Expensive but worth it. Another in the expensive but worth it category in Lima is Central, located at Calle Santa Isabel 376 in Miraflores. The menu is fusion highlighting fresh Peruvian products. Lunch is served Monday through Friday from 1:30 to 3:30 pm. Dinner is from 8 to 11 pm on Monday through Wednesday; until midnight from Thursday to Saturday. Given that Gaston Acurio is the most famous chef in Peru, there can be no list of top restaurants in the country without mentioning him. Although he does have other restaurants in Lima, try the original, Astrid y Gaston at Calle Cantuarias 175, Miraflores. It’s open Monday through Saturday. Lunch hours are 12:30 to 3:30 pm while dinner is served from 7:45 to 11:45 pm. As with most of the top restaurants in the country, this one is expensive by Peruvian standards.
  2. 2. How Much To Tip Waitresses Also by Gaston in Lima is Panchita, located at Av. Dos de Mayo 298 in Miraflores. The pricing is mid-range so a bit easier to swallow if you’re trying to budget. What Gaston has done here is bring traditional Criollo street food inside where you can sit down and enjoy it. Hours are 12:30-9pm Mon-Sat; 12:30-5pm Sun. If you’re in Lima and after seafood, try Punto Azul at Av. Primavera 2235 in Surco. The dishes are reasonably priced and the portions are huge. It’s open for lunch only so make sure you get there early, even a little before 1, as there will already be a line. There are some great restaurants in Cusco but the quality is often inconsistent, offering a fantastic meal one time and something substandard the next. Not so at Divina Comedia, located at Pumacurco 406. Always delicious, the food is Peruvian with French influences and the prices reasonable. The restaurant is open for dinner only and features live piano and opera, with songs in Italian and Quechua.

Although there is plenty to enjoy on the regular menu, the highlight here are the tapas... perfect for enjoying in the bar with a selection from one of the better wine menus in town. Also has some yummy baked goods for breakfast. Hours are breakfast from 8 to 11 am, lunch from 12 to 3 pm and dinner from 6 to 10 pm. Pachapapa is a great place to go to tasty traditional Peruvian food in a manner that is safe for foreign tummies. Located right in San Blas Plaza in Cusco, the restaurant is open daily from 11:00 am to 11:00 pm. Good place to try
  3. 3. guinea pig but you should stop by the day before to reserve it. If you’re in Cusco and tired of Peruvian food and expensive bills, go to Justina’s on Calle Palacio. They only serve pizza but it’s great quality at a great price and the wine is inexpensive as well. It’s open for dinner only, from 7pm to 10 or 11, depending on how busy it is. Closed on Sundays. Aguas Calientes, now often referred to as Machu Picchu Pueblo, has a huge number of restaurants for the size of the town, mostly serving the same food at inflated prices. A much better option is Indio Feliz at Lloque Yupanqui 4-12, just off the pedestrian street that heads up to the hot baths. It’s not cheap but if you go for the menu, it’s a great deal for the amount and quality of the food you get. French-Peruvian fusion; open for lunch and dinner. Maureen Santucci lives in Cusco, Peru where she practices acupuncture and writes on the country’s charms and hidden wonders.
