Enjoyed a tasty lunch of chicken and Lomo saltado. Wondering whether to get small dessert? The answer should be yes! Try the caramel cookie. Attentive service.

The food is good in general, I like specially the hearts. The problem is that two of us had digestion problem the whole night after our dinner there. They had the "limo saltado", maybe you shall avoid this one. I had hearts and ceviche, and both were really good. I asked for ceviche which is not spicy at all and... More

I love coming to this restaurant. Food is great, prices are not bad. I used to live in the area, now I drive 45mins just to eat there and it is totally worth it! I highly recommend this place.

I was told about this restaurant by a woman who worked at a Giant food mart. We decided to try it. It's a bit difficult to find because it's in a strip mall, a small area with adjoining stores and the gps only takes you to the area and then you must find it amongst the stores. We realized it's...

My mom and I have been coming here for a long time. Each visit has been great. The service is excellent and the food is fresh and delicious. You can't go wrong with any of the menu choices. I normally order trucha a la plancha which is fried trout with white rice and a potato or I get their lomo... More

Had the chupe de camarones which was amazing!!! Large enough as a meal by itself . Couldn't stop myself and ordered ossubuco dish. Tender off the bone and wonderful sauce. This is their signature dish in my opinion. You won't be disappointed. Only criticism is that the place is usually crowded (which is understandable with the food quality) so service... More

I never expect a strip mall restaurant to be spotlessly clean and beautiful inside, but La Limena is. The carry out display cases are the first things you see - beautiful presentation. The waiter was very friendly and helpful. I ordered the quarter white chicken with yuca and a side salad. Although I've had more flavorful Peruvian chicken and sauces,... More

As close as Peruvian food that you are going to get in DC metro area. Ceviche is superb, lomo saltado is the way I remember and the Anticuchos the way my Mom used to make them.

The food at La Limena is excellent. It is also authentic Peruvian food. But the main point is that, as anyone who has traveled to Peru can attest, Peruvians take food seriously and La Limena tries to maintain this standard. They are always full whenever I go, their popularity speaks for itself. The staff are very warm and helpful. Peruvian... More
