"My husband and I dined at Central on our final weekend in Peru at the end of our 3 week trip. What a meal! The pre-fixe menu is as outstanding as its recent #50 world ranking would suggest. I was proud to have made the booking almost 6 months ago after exhaustive research and before the new ranki..."ng.
The restaurant is quite dramatic, but make sure you reserve a table in the main section of the dining room. Despite my advance booking, they tried to put us at a table first near the bar entry and adjacent to the server station--a terrible location which should not even have a table in our opinions.

"Two of us went to dinner here after a movie. Walked in at 9pm without a reservation. The restaurant is beautiful and modern, the bar area dark and inviting, and the staff helpful and friendly.

It was our last night in Lima after a 2-week stay during which we indulged and blew out our budget by eating at some great restaurants (La Mar and Astrid y Gaston among them). However Central was definitely the best and not as expensive as we had anticipated. We split the tuna confit - which has flavors I've never before tasted. Each of us had fish for the main course and both were perfectly cooked and came with even more delicious sides. I can't recall with dessert we ordered but it was chocolate and spectacular.
Definitely a must-do for anyone who is traveling to Lima and loves good food! I would say it's more romantic than a place for friends.
