Time Out Says

At Time Out Dubai, we dine out a lot. And sometimes we eat somewhere we’re still raving about weeks after visiting. The food at LIMA Dubai is so exceptional that we’ve found ourselves recommending it to our friends again and again. From super-fresh ceviches (we recommend the zingy salmon), to grills and deliciously rich and meaty anticuchos, there’s something for everyone at this world-famous restaurant from renowned chef Virgilio Martinez.

Peruvian food also naturally lends itself to be an excellent cuisine for vegans and veggies – there are apparently almost 4,000 varieties of potato in Peru, after all – and the menu at LIMA will thrill you if you’re plant-based.

The dishes are top-notch, don’t miss the sautéed avocado ceviche and solterito salad. The avocado is deliciously creamy and the corn tiger’s milk can only be described as being like a warm hug. But the real showstopper is the cusco corn brûlée. It’s dense without being too heavy, savoury yet sweet, and is so moreish.

Every dish is delightfully simple, with the true flavours of the ingredients at the forefront.

Aside from the fantastic food, the venue itself is beautiful. Located in the Square in City Walk, this spot feels like you’re worlds away from the shopping street next to it while still being super-convenient. There’s also a terrace and a cool bar area if you want to make a night of it.

For top-notch Latin American food, this is a sure-fire hit with all diners, which is why it picked up a Highly Commended Best Latin American Restaurant award from Time Out Dubai in 2020.
