A restaurant for everyone Jul 30, 2008
Lima is well known because its great cuisine. You can find delicious food for every taste and at reasonable prices. You just have to choose what kind of food are you in the mood for. Here is some general information about the restaurants in Lima, I hope it'd be helpful.

Tips: they are not included in the bill. We usually tip 10%. If you are paying cash, just leave it cash, but if you are paying with a credit card, just add this amount and do the math before signing the voucher.

Security: something that can surprise you is finding chains under your table or in the chairs. They are used to lock your purse or bags. Some years ago, Lima wasn't very safe and this was the way to protect your own things against robbers. Right now, it's not so unsafe, but just in case...

Hours of attention: depending on the kind of food they are open for breakfast, lunch and/or dinner. Just the cebicherias (the seafood places) work only for lunch. We don't use to have seafood for dinner.

Left overs: if there are left overs you want to take with you, just say it is: "para llevar", so they will put it in a doggy bag.

To share: if you want to split a dish, just tell the waiter this is "para compartir", so he will bring 2 plates.

Buffets: they are becoming more popular and you can find chinese, peruvian, seafood buffets. Their prices usually don't include a beverage. The food can be cheap, but they will make money with the beverages.

I hope this info might be helpful.
