We went there after checked in our hotel, wanted something casual, and this place is no where close to casual. My Donald Duck t-shirt and jean shorts outfit contrasted with the well dressed "shirt and tie" waiters. Tables were properly set, nice glassware and napkins, old wood furniture and paintings, leather covered menu. It's the classic old school charm !... More

Food was excellent, few selection of wines. No Peruvian wine sold by the glass but international wine sold by the glass so one is forced to buy a bottle if one wants to taste or explore a good Peruvian wine. For being known as one of the best restaurants of Lima, management must update their credit card payment system, there... More

Jose Antonio came highly recommended by the locals. I dined here for lunch on a Friday - the restaurant was full! I recommend making a reservation (this can be done at least a day in advance). The food is delicious and the portions large. I ordered the mixed seafood ceviche - great choice. The service is a little slow, but... More

Our previous visit was in 2003 and enjoyed it very much. In Lima last winter and returned to find it just as great. Gracious reception , helpful waiter, excellent Peruvian cuisine. Can't wait to return!

This restaurant was suggested to me by a Peruvian colleague, when staying in San Isidro. Since it was a beautiful night and the area is safe, we decided to walk and earn our dinner. We arrived to a nearly empty restaurant, that filled with larger parties after the football matches were over. The service was good throughout and they had... More

On sunday lunch alone in Lima, I found Jose Antonio very pleasant . It is a kind of family restaurant.Food is abundant . Cevices are outstanding. I did not like the TacuTacu ( my first one in my life ).

Great Food good service and I have to say that I am glad we took our time in ordering, because the food came out fast. I will come back again the only complaint would be is that they started cleaning the floors with a floor cleaner that we had to leave because of the smell, maybe that was the idea.... More

We have not been to this restaurant in quite some time but we had good memories of it. So, we took some out of town visitors. The food was quite good as expected. There were very few people dining with us (it was a Sunday evening and it was quite early). So, we were disappointed as the service was quite... More
