Limo: one of the best restaurants in Cusco, Peru

Say what? Delicious seafood in the middle of the Andes mountains?  It’s true my friends! Believe it or not, but Cusco boasts a restaurant that serves up a full-flavored, stunning assortment of dishes featuring the fruits of the sea.

Limo finds the perfect balance of great food, an elegant and modern atmosphere, and ideal location right on Cusco’s main square, all of which makes this is one of our favourite restaurants in the city. It never ceases to amaze us with the high quality of fish and seafood, which is transported from the coast by aeroplane.

Like Green’s Organic, another one of Cusco Restaurant Group’s incredible dining options, Limo finds a way to make your meal memorable. Start your dining experience with one of their funky pisco cocktails while you try to decide which of the amazing appetizers to try, with a wide selection of tiraditos, ceviches, and even sushi rolls to intrigue your taste buds.  For your main course, enjoy a succulent cut of ossobuco served with carrots and yuca, or opt for the buttery and rich flavor of juicy white fish complemented by an assortment of seafood and amplified by hints of spicy Peruvian peppers. For dessert, Limo whips up delicious sweet concoctions using a variety of traditional Peruvian ingredients and adds their own little twist, such as chocolate kiwicha cones with strawberries, iced chicha morada and star anise.

Traditional Peruvian flavors meet modern presentations and Asian influences to make Limo one of the more intriguing dining options in this historical, dynamic city. If you are planning to make a reservation here, be sure to request a table on the balcony overlooking the Plaza de Armas, as these tables are a hot commodity and give the perfect location to catch all of the action around the bustling Main Square.
