It's been about 4 years since my last visit to Central in 2012 and I have to say that it still is an amazing experience. One thing that has changed for the worse now that the restaurant is so popular is how hard it is to get a table. I booked about 60-70 days in advance and the options were... More

Forget French Laundry in California (and yes, I have eaten there) and buy yourself a plane ticket to Peru instead! Lucky for us, there was a cancellation so we were able to get in for dinner. Most people wait months to get a reservation, so if you want to eat here plan ahead (way ahead). We had such an outstanding... More

After almost having done a PhD two months ago, in trying to book a table for dinner in this place, which considers itself a restaurant but actually is just a bar with restaurant facilities, and after receiving 2-3 emails to reconfirm our intention to be there, we had the ugliest surprise of our life dinning out. Arriving there earlier than... More

I was so looking forward to trying this restaurant but left feeling disappointed. We had the 15 course taster menu. The food lacked the wow factor when it came to taste. It was excellently presented and you can admire the technical skills demonstrated. Most of the staff left before the end of our meal and it did not add to... More

Great concept, excellent food, beautifully presented. Expensive, but not for one of the great restaurants of the world.

I have no words HOW GREAT this restaurant is and I am sure they know it themselves. Its a journey and adventure not just a dinner or a meal. Have never before and think will not ever after have something so exceptional. And it introduces Peru in totally different way. So lucky that I had a chance to visit this... More

An experience that one must not miss. From the greeting, to the presentation to the tribute to the palate, everything was just perfect. Impressive. You have the choice of an 11 or 16 course meal vs individual dishes in the bar area. It's difficult to get in here so reserve way in advance because it's worth the wait. I can't... More

My friend and I visited for lunch in October 2015. I would have loved to have tried the full tasting menu but we opted just to have lunch. Everything was delicious. We had an appetizer, main and cocktail. All were top notch. Service and food were spectacular. And our server was so kind, she let us come back into the... More

During our time in Peru we travelled to many parts of the country, from Lima on the coast up to the Andean Plateau and Lake Titicaca. Dining at Central brings all of those areas together, as the menu spans each different region of the country and the dishes are as diverse as the effects of the altitude on the different... More

A truly gastronomic experience. Delicate and exquisitely prepared Peruvian cuisine at its finest. Central exceeded its reputation.
