On our first full day in Lima, we found ourselves in the San Isidro neighborhood. We were hungry and I stumbled across Limaná. It’s menu focuses on the consumption of superfoods produced in Peru. These are found in each of the delicious dishes on the menu. Limaná holds the title of the first sustainable restaurant in South America.
Anthony’s Take: Limaná was just what we wanted. Delicious and creative dishes, excellent service, and a beautiful courtyard to enjoy them in. We loved every dish and would have returned if we had more time. Highly recommended when in Lima if you’re looking for a modern take on Peruvian and fusion dishes.
Decor & Vibe
The plain concrete facade gives way to an open courtyard with flowers and trees. It’s a great spot to dine al fresco and something you wouldn’t know is there unless you knew. A small wooden host stand under an umbrella and a few chairs in front don’t give away what lies in the courtyard.
Limaná has a separate café with a barista and pastries.
The kitchen is semi-open and I enjoyed peaking at the team cooking.
A separate bar area offered cocktails and hightops.
Flowers and trees filled the courtyard.
As mentioned, the menu focuses on sustainability, super foods, and Peruvian cuisine. We shared multiple items and really enjoyed everything we tasted. The plating was well done and you could see the care and taste the quality in each dish. Menus are on QR codes on each table.
We started with the Portabello Mushroom Gyoza. The mushrooms were from Pachacamac in Lima and they were served with a Ponzu sauce.
Next came the Mini Portabello Burgers. These were nicely grilled and served with caramelized onion, tomato, chimichurri, and tartar sauce.
My mother had the Pumpkin Cream. This was a soup even though we were told it was not. She liked the dish and its inclusion of ginger, quinoa, broad beans, and peas.
My husband and I shared the Three Pepper Ceviche. It was fresh and delicious. Mixed in was Corvina from the fishing village in Ilo, Moquegua, lemon, chili pepper, corn, sweet potato, onion, and coriander sprouts.
Finally, we split the Spaghetti with Pistachio Pesto. The pasta was al dente and it was made with sautéed zucchini and basil pesto, Parmesan cheese, and pistachios.
Limaná has a full bar, wine list, and soft drinks. I did not take pictures since we only had water and ginger ale with lunch.
The food, service, and atmosphere all impressed me at Limaná. If we had more time I would have definitely returned for another meal. If you’re in Lima, check it out.
