The night of our reservation they were clearly understaffed and the service was lacking because of it. However, despite delays getting our initial drinks and order and the fact that they literally brought out our appetizer and and entrees at the exact same time - the food was delicious. The presentation was beautiful also. We would be happy to return to give the service another try.

My wife and I are from Peru, this may be our best Peruvian restaurant in Florida thus far. Don't forget to get the fresh made bread! Enjoy.

The food was good but, not excellent. My wife’s chaufa was too salty. My pisco sour was too smooth, I’ve been to Lima and pisco sour is much more stronger. It’s seems that they don’t know how to prepare it or they want to make more money saving the pisco. The low point of our dinner was that they didn’t have enough waiters, we had to wait 30 minutes to get the drinks and the couple that were close to us it was worse. We paid more than USD 130 for 1 starter, 2 main courses, 2 pisco sours and 1 mango juice. It’s expensive!

This is a hidden local restaurant that warrants more attention. The food is fantastic, no matter what your tastes are. They have seafood, beef, pork and chicken dishes with imaginative sauces. The ceviche is excellent, as are the pisco drinks. I could eat anything on the menu and be happy.

This is the best restaurant in Naples! Such an experience! I truly felt like I was eating in Peru... we started off with delicious Pisco cocktails and salted corn kernels (what a treat if you've never had them before). Then enjoyed a Japanese inspired grouper ceviche and freshly made Peruvian rolls (from sweet potato). Our mains were Macho fish and a tacu tacu dish (which is made with a white bean and rice) - both of them were excellent. I honestly couldn't believe how delicious every was and how I could go so long without experiencing such an amazing Peruvian meal! Our waiter was the BEST. William will guide you through the menu and even did a little dance when he suggested I try the Mango Tango Pisco!

The food might have been great, but we never got to find out...here’s why. We had a 7:30pm reservation which was confirmed around 5:00pm via a phone call from someone from the restaurant. Great, so far. We arrived at 7:20pm and stood by the “wait to be seated sign”. There was no one from the restaurant staff to be seen except for the chef who looked up every few minutes while cooking...he had a direct view of us waiting to be seated. So at 7:30 I walked around the restaurant to get someone’s attention and noticed a total of 3 employees, the chef, a waiter, and a bartender. None of them appeared to know I was there. There were only 3 tables being served in which 1 gentleman left before receiving his order and the other had been waiting for at least an hour for their order (they were near the front door and we overheard them complaining). We decided to leave at 7:35pm with absolutely no contact from the restaurant staff. On the way out, the gentleman with his family who had been waiting a while said “good choice, good choice” as we walked out the door.

We were driving from Tampa to Miami and were craving ceviche! We did a Google search and found this little gem in a strip mall. We were greeted by a very animated host and were served by the owners sister. The entire staff was personable and the restaurant inside was lovely. It had a full bar and served a delicious pisco sour! The ceviche trio was a nice way to taste three of their different ceviches. All amazingly delicious and so fresh!! We also had the seafood grill and the quinoa salad. Everything was GREAT!! We will definitely take that same route on our next trip from Tampa to Miami just so we can eat there!! As a major foodie, and a lover of good ceviche, I highly recommend this Peruvian jewel!

This is my first visit to the lima restaurant. I plan to visit Peru in the next few weeks and wanted to try out some Peruvian food. If the taste and quality of this restaurant is indicative of what I can expect in Peru I will be extremely happy. One of my dining companions is from lima. He had eaten there before and guaranteed me that the food would be authentic. I would most definitely visit this restaurant again and recommend it to all my friends.

The chef came out to serve a course, his sister was also there and in all, a great experience. I'll go back the next time I visit Naples for sure!

Nice people, but didn’t seem to know how to run a restaurant. They brought the wrong food to our table, never came back to offer additional drinks after the first round or to check on our liking of the food. Dishes served in ridiculously oversized bowls and most of our dishes were more like soups with what was supposed to be crunchy rice, but was merely mush.

We consider this restaurant the best find of the season. Having visited Lima, Cusco, Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley I had been introduced to the complex and delicious cuisine of Peru. Lima brought it all back. Our servers, Juliana and Willy, were attentive and friendly. Everything from the specialty drink of the evening to the entrees was exquisitely prepared. We have been telling all our friends about Lima Restaurant and Pisco Bar and look forward to returning many times in the future.

Les cocktails proposé avec la liqueur locale sont terrible ! C'est local, donc vraiment une bonne idée !
Le chef propose des plats locaux de sont pays qui sont vraiment très bon et très bien cuisiné, c'est remarquable ! Je conseil vivement ce restaurant !

Pour le service, nous avons passé une soirée extrêmement étrange... Visiblement il s'est passé quelque chose avec le staff, il manquait des personnes de ce que nous avons compris. Le personnel présent étaient pourtant très sympathique et donnaient beaucoup d'explications pour les choix des plats, ce qui est très appréciable. Beaucoup trop de temps pour prendre les commandes et recevoir les commandes...

Une première dans ma vie, j'ai reçu mon plats alors que je mangeais encore mon entrée...et on m'a laissé le plats refroidir à coté de moi...incroyable ! En Europe ce genre de situation est impossible.

Mais j'insiste, c'est une très belle adresse pour y manger des plats d'Amérique latine d'une grande qualité. Je suis certain que le chef va régler ces problèmes. Et j'insiste que le personnels présent ce soir là a gardé le sourire toute la soirée alors que c'était l'enfer pour eux !

Lima is a small, comfortable restaurant with a nice ambiance. They were short staffed when we were there and I think their entire nights service came in at the same time. Our hostess, who I think was one of the owners also worked as waitress and bartender. Despite this she thoughtfully took the time to explain the menu, and drinks, foods, and dishes unique to Peru. The food was outstanding and worth the wait. The ceviche was perfect and came with delicious sweet potato rolls we ordered. I had the seafood tacu tacu that was outstanding. My wife had the macho fish, which was equally good. I would have given this five stars if the service had been better. I would highly recommend Lima.

If you consider yourself someone who like to try different foods from other cultures, this restaurant is a definite stop. We started with a trio of ceviche, Nikkei, Classico, and al Aji Amarillo. Serving is large and was shared among three people. We all thought it was delicious and presented beautifully. We also ordered a beef Antichuchos, which is marinated beef heart. Absolutely wonderful. Our entrees included, Chicarron and Carapula, which is slow cooked pork, Seco de Cordero, which is slow roasted lamb shank, and Macho Fish, which is a fried grouper placed atop a seafood stew. All entrees were outstanding and presented beautifully. Our server was delightful. She explained Peruvian food and culture to us and helped us make our choices. The restaurant is very pleasant and comfortable, parking is easy. The entire staff is warm and friendly. I highly recommend.
