I really enjoyed this restaurant! It has an old-fashioned italian style, with a lot of bottle of wines, and old stuff. The quality and diversity of food, mix of seafood and italian food, was awesome. I recommend it for everyone who visits Lima.

This is a quaint, old Italian restaurant with personality. Service was very good. The lunch buffet was extensive, but I ordered seafood Risotto from the menu--one of the best I've had. Yes, I'd go back.

The place is like an old italian restaurant, with hundreds of wine bottles from around the world and other paraphernalia. It can get a bit crowded as it is no too big. The buffet provides meats you cannot find anywhere else in peru I think (mainly european wild meat). Wide choice of starters and salads, as well as pasta, meats... More

Buffet is best if you go at 12:30 as it is just being put out. Nothing is kept hot and nothing is kept cold. But, the food is varied and good. Loved the cheeses and olives. Lots of dishes, exotic meats and classic meats, pasta and seafood dishes as well. They will heat your plate if you want it hot.... More

Went for some icecream. Nuts were rancid and ice cream melted. Asked for a glass of water three times and in the end, had to fetch it myself. The rest of the food was as fresh as mummy remains. Come to think of it, deco looked like a tomb, dark, heavy and overcrowded with tat. In a city where eating... More

We had a fantastic experience in Blue Moon. The buffet has lots of variety, we especially liked the hams. The restaurant is run by a family with a very nostalgic atmosphere. The average age of staff is somewhat older, but they understand service as no one else. Keep up the good work!

This restaurant is a must for the decoration. Bottles of all kinds and sorts on walls, ceiling, tables. Not many squarecentimetres are vacant in this decorationhysteria that Blue Moon is affected off. It is a warm place, staff is ok but a bit unorganised. The food? Hmm.. its ok - very large portions. A starter - mozarella caprese was huge... More
