Another reason to visit Lima. The food was inventive and delicious. Excellent service. And the presentation is an art work.

My wife and I were there and we had the "Ecosistemas Mater" tasting menu. We where VERY excited as it was quite hard to get a table with short notice. Grateful to those who helped us secure a table we arrived... I wasn't very impressed with the decor or atmosphere but it was Ok. My first impression was when I... More

Had the pleasure to try this restaurant and had a unique experience. Read some negative reviews regarding reservation, but had absolutely no problem. Booked online a couple of weeks in advance, selected the menu i wanted, turned up and the table was ready. The decor was nothing fancy or pretentious. Service overall was pretty good, waiters knowledgeable about the food... More

The restaurant is 4th in the Top 50 Best restaurant of the world not by case. The 11 courses menu will bring you through the heights of Peru from 10 m below the sea to 3800 m of the Andes. The most impressive thing is that simple ingredients like mais or potatos (infinite variety) are completely transformed to luxury food.... More

The tasting menu at Central is most interesting - organized by height. The 11 courses of beautifully presented tastes ranged from -20 meters (below the sea) to some 3,900 meters from the mountains. The food is very interesting and served in a very relaxed and serene manner (lunch took 3+ hours). At the end, we were presented not only with... More

We couldn't believe our luck to be able to find last minute reservations with our dear friends Alonso y Lorena, who were celebrating their 31st wedding anniversary! We were honored to celebrate their milestone & the friendship we have formed across the continents. We spent four luxurious hours journeying through the different altitudes with our gastro-sherpa, Chef Virgilio, who was... More

I had the opportunity to eat twice on this wonderful restaurant. As you may know, it was ranked as one of the Top 3 restaurant worldwide. Well, I agree that food is great here ! First, you will have to book various weeks before. Second, you will enjoy the bar of the restaurant before eating or just come here to... More

I was super excited to eat at this restaurant, as I work in the restaurant industry myself and had heard from several chefs that this place is a must-try. I am very rarely so underwhelmed and disappointed in places like this. We started out at the bar because it was impossible to make a tasting menu reservation online. The bar... More

I gave three points instead of 4 because it is not a very good restaurant but it is a good one. First I have to admit that they were very kind to me when they grant me a reservation, which was a nice detail, so service it is absolutely excellent and waiters always made me feel really comfortable, were always...
