Jose Antonio came highly recommended by the locals. I dined here for lunch on a Friday - the restaurant was full! I recommend making a reservation (this can be done at least a day in advance). The food is delicious and the portions large. I ordered the mixed seafood ceviche - great choice. The service is a little slow, but... More

Our previous visit was in 2003 and enjoyed it very much. In Lima last winter and returned to find it just as great. Gracious reception , helpful waiter, excellent Peruvian cuisine. Can't wait to return!

This restaurant was suggested to me by a Peruvian colleague, when staying in San Isidro. Since it was a beautiful night and the area is safe, we decided to walk and earn our dinner. We arrived to a nearly empty restaurant, that filled with larger parties after the football matches were over. The service was good throughout and they had... More

On sunday lunch alone in Lima, I found Jose Antonio very pleasant . It is a kind of family restaurant.Food is abundant . Cevices are outstanding. I did not like the TacuTacu ( my first one in my life ).

Great Food good service and I have to say that I am glad we took our time in ordering, because the food came out fast. I will come back again the only complaint would be is that they started cleaning the floors with a floor cleaner that we had to leave because of the smell, maybe that was the idea.... More

We have not been to this restaurant in quite some time but we had good memories of it. So, we took some out of town visitors. The food was quite good as expected. There were very few people dining with us (it was a Sunday evening and it was quite early). So, we were disappointed as the service was quite... More

Beyond the well known "ceviches", this is a good place for traditional Peruvian cuisine. This is the place if you are looking for the traditional Peruvian dishes. Fine quality of food, drink and customer service. The place is usually crowded and very popular with locals. Prices are very reasonable. Recommended.

The food is great, specially the meats. You have to try the "choclo Jose Antonio". I had the "brocheta de lomo" and it was tasty.

In this restaurant you will find many of the traditional Peruvian plates. My waiter was very kind and oriented me in ordering traditional plates. I had the “anticuchos de res” (beef’s heart) and “ají de gallina” (chicken with aji sauce). The place is crowded. Prices are decent.
