Osaka: I love the atmosphere and the Peruvian-Japanese fusion cuisine. My boyfriend and I go here for special dates. Without a doubt, try the sushi. They also have grilled meat with crispy native Peruvian potatoes that you will fall in love with.
Rafael: I love this place [in Miraflores]; it’s small and very cozy. Their delicious cuisine is a very interesting mix of Peruvian and international flavors, like Italian and Japanese. [Rafael is no. 24 of Latin America’s 50 best restaurants.]
I really like going to Dada and to the bar at Hotel B, which has a nice cozy terrace. They’re both in Barranco, a neighborhood well known for its nightlife. These are definitely two places you can’t miss in Lima.
Miraflores is a favorite. It’s very busy, but it also has nice parks where you can organize a delicious picnic with the most beautiful sea views. This view can also be enjoyed while you’re walking or cycling, because there’s an extensive boardwalk.
And of course, there’s the beautiful neighborhood of Barranco. There, the sea, art, and nightlife of the city come together in all styles and rhythms. Bars, restaurants, galleries, and everything you need to enjoy and discover a more bohemian side of Lima are here.
