Review of Lima Criolla Peruvian Restaurant by Rhonda Tyler

If you want to try something new, then Peruvian is for you. It's an exotic taste of South America with its delicious plantains and crispy yuca fries.
The seafood is terrific for a pescatarin like me, but there is plenty of mouth watering entrees for you meat lover's as well.

The one thing that could make it more appealing to everyone is a vegetarian option too. ????

Closest thing to true Peruvian cuisine as you can get. Good service. Good ambiance. Good people. Not much more you can ask for. Make sure you get the picarones at the end.

This is such an amazing place to eat. It's one of the best Peruvian places in Austin. The food is great and affordable. Plus, you can always enjoy a Pisco Sour, which I highly recommend trying. We visit Lima sometimes weekly and there is always something I've never tried before.

From the outside the restaurant looks so very nice, but the inside is very small and cramped. Food was ok, a little overpriced but they have good portions. Waiters took a long time to bring the food and it wasn’t the friendliest.

I had a close friend who always told me about this place. She swore it was the best! Finally, after a year, I decided to stop by. This is the part where I tell you what I've been missing out on.

The food was delicious! There were both savory and sweet options on the menu. I felt savory was appropriate for a Wednesday. My eyes went directly towards the ceviche, but my wallet dictated my final decision. The lunch special - by far the best option, I think. For less than $10 (always double check) you can get a soup or salad and a lunch plate. It was a complete bargain. As for the flavors, they were all there. The meal tasted homemade and had the aromas of a traditional Peruvian kitchen. There were no regrets.

The service was ok. Although I was helped quickly, there was a man sitting in the corner who seemed to be ignored often. Maybe just double check and do rounds more often? Otherwise, I felt good about the attention provided to me.

Overall, it was good. The food had a variety of options and I'm ready to try them all. I will certainly be back!

I've never had Peruvian food before and went here on a whim. and boyyyyy I was NOT DISAPPOINTED. This place is AMAZING. The location wasn't great but the food and service blew me away. They also have these incredible cookies with powdered sugar and dulce de leche that I highly recommend. Definitely coming back and bring all of my friends :)

Great service. Fabulos seasonings make pre packaged (frozen?) ingredients taste good. So close. I'll do lunches, but a chef could make dinner worth while.

The food was good. The service was good and a little slow although the restaurant wasn’t full. The staff very friendly and helpful. Clean.

If this place had the Peruvian green sauce (aji verde), I would rate it a 3 or 4. What kind of Peruvian place doesn't have the green sauce?! If you've ever had Peruvian food from a respectable Peruvian restaurant or at a Peruvian house, you know exactly which sauce I'm talking about. Not having the green sauce at a Peruvian spot is like an Italian spot not having any tomato sauces or like a Greek spot with no tzatziki sauce. The little orange sauce this place gives you with your food is TRASH.

Now that we got that out of the way, let's get into their pricing. First I'll just throw out some prices I've paid in NJ. In NJ, you can get a whole chicken(pollo a la brasa), fries and a salad for about $16 at a lot of places. You can get a decent container (like 7" x 7") with a bunch of Lomo Saltado for like $12. I know I'm not in NJ anymore and yes NJ Peruvian spots spoiled me with their reasonable prices and GREEN SAUCE but "LIMA" criollo's lomo saltado is like $13+ and it comes in a tiny container (like a hot dog container. Maybe 3" x 6") It's a rip off.

As for the flavor of the food... I can't remember how it tasted. Nothing stood out, Very forgettable. I usually drown my lomo saltado or chicken in green sauce but this Lima place insists on serving some garbage as orange sauce. Even spots in Boston and New York I've been to have the green sauce.

EVERY PERUVIAN PLACE SHOULD HAVE AJI VERDE!

We decided to try this place since it was near our hotel. When we left we were amazed at how good it was!! Excellent service - and the food... wow. So fresh, everything was hand made. I would recommend this place to anyone wanting to try something different. I had never had Peruvian before and I loved it. You won’t be disappointed.

Stopped by for supper. I ordered the pork chop dinner. The pork chop was tender and well cooked. It did have a very slight rancid taste. Maybe they could clean the grill a little better next time. The mashed potatoes were done just right. The garlic rice has a good flavor.
