The place was dead when we showed up late morning. Old style, nostalgic vibe. Our hotel concierge recommended the maracuya pisco sour and it was probably the best we had in Peru. Can't comment on food. Service was OK.

We were staying at the hotel and had a snack (chicken and cheese) platter for three in the hour before our walking tour departed. The staff were pleasant and efficient, the food came quickly, was fresh and delicious.

The cafe/restaurant at the Gran Hotel Bolivar is an excellent choice to eat. The food is excellent quality and not much more expensive than the crap fast food available locally.

This once grand 1920's hotel has lost a lot of its former elegance but it's still a "must do" when in Lima, We only went for the famous Catedral Pisco Sours, which didn't disappoint, but they were served in a bland dining room lacking any...More
