It seems you are in a bubble inside Lima. It does not represent Lima at all. However, we found so many good restaurants there. The olive forest in the middle of the district is like an oasis!

Wish I could help but we didn't eat there. We stayed at a B&B and spent the rest of our time sightseeing and eating elsewhere. Can't imagine you can go wrong in Peru though. Everything they serve is delicious.
