Beautiful section with many bars, cafes and restaurants. Overall, San Isidro has the feeling of being very safe and up and coming. In my opinion is rivals Miraflores for safety and beauty. And if it doesn't Miraflores is a short walk away.

San Isidro is the place that most embassies are situated. It used to be the best residential neighborhood of Lima but has been overtaken by Miraflores and Barranco. There is a very modern, big and nice shopping mall which is worth while to visit.

Wish I could help but we didn't eat there. We stayed at a B&B and spent the rest of our time sightseeing and eating elsewhere. Can't imagine you can go wrong in Peru though. Everything they serve is delicious.

If you like Chinese or Chifa as they are called in Peru, the best in San Isidro is called Royal in Prescott Avenue. For Peruvian and International food there is the Tanta in the Park EL Olivar San Isidro
