On our tour of Peru we first landed in Lima. Hearing of its ever developing reputation for food culture we opted to try one of its high end restaurants...we opted for Maido. Booking was needed a few months in advance. And for the weekend we required, we could only get a seat at the sushi counter for lunch (which actually wasnt a problem, it was a little more informal, and great to see the sushi being prepared, and to have a conversation and laugh with the chef's).
We chose the full tasting menu with drinks pairing. Everything about the experience was amazing, from the initial “Maido” greeting when we walked in, the service of all those that tended to us, and to the exceptional taste and details of the meal. We enjoyed every course and an amazing pisco sour to finish off. It is expensive for Peru, but that is to be expected at a restaurant with this level of food and service.

This is our third visit and it gets more spectacular each time. Beautiful restaurant, excellent service and fantastic food. We discussed the menu with the sous-chef first and then sat back and ate 9 different courses each one exquisite. The tempura was the best I've ever eaten but the flounder sashimi was even better. Ceviche of fruit and a triple chocolate for desserts. The shrimp, the four gras sushi, everything. 2 1/2 hours later we were stunned. There are at least five other things I want to try next time and probably another dozen Inwill try. It is rated in the top ten in the world and it probably cost less by 50 % then any of the other top ten

We couldn't make the reservation in advanced. We went to the restaurant directly one night to test our luck. The reception told us it was full that night and told us to call in at 9am the next day to see if there is somebody cancel their reservation. So we did and lucky we got a space. We tried their testing menu. It was delicious and every course was exquisitely decorated. I strongly recommend it to you.
