Restaurants in Lima

No trip to Lima would be complete without tasting ceviche which has recently become a very famous dish internationally. Lima restaurants cook this dish with a mix of raw fish, onions and chili peppers all marinated in lime. For a full range of choices of restaurants in Lima, feel free to tour around Miraflores. This district offers Lima restaurants right on the coast so that you can enjoy the sunset as you indulge in your ceviche.

Restaurant Huaca Pucllana offers travelers a wide range of authentic Peruvian food. If you are feeling very adventurous, order cuy. Depending on your level of adventure, you may not want to know what cuy is. If you don't, skip the next sentence. Cuy is guinea pig. In ancient times it was served to kings with its head still on. They say it takes gamey, like rabbit. Feel free to try it and let us know, how you liked it!

Lima is also home to many international restaurants. Travelers can find French, Chinese, Korean, and Columbian cuisine in the capital city.
