Larco Mar is a kind of shopping/entertainment plaza built into a cliff edge overlooking the sea. A few good shops some great little eating establishments.
Just to warn you, nothing opens till later in the day there. So, if you were thinking of venturing there early because you were up due to jet lag, think again.
Surfing is a rather popular activity here in Lima. Though I came here in autumn, I saw many surfers when I went to Miraflores beach. If you go for lunch to the Rosa Nautica restaurant, you will see them riding the waves from the terrace of the restaurant, a fabulous observation deck. If you don't want to enter the restaurant, you can go to the end of the pier and see the riders from there.
Creo q lo mas bacan es q los dueños son gente joven asi q te entienden y se preocupan por ellos mismos estar diviertiendose mientras el show y la noche corren, y ellos mismos corren pues son ellos los q estan de mesa enmesa viendo a la gente. Llamar antes para saber si hay musica en vivo, definitavemente es lo q mas divierte. El ambiente es pequeño asi q la resonancia es bacan, pero siempre hay un huequito o dos en donde abrirse cancha pa bailar un valsesito o una de antaño, ¿talvez Rafaela Carra? uno nunca sabe.....
more than a coffee...
This is a rather inexpensive cafe, right in the heart of Miraflores. With a very calm ambience, its a great place to chill out, hung out with friends, get some work done (as it provides free WI-FI connection) or just get a delicious coffee. As well as hot and cold coffees (which I must say are the best I've tried so far, especially the Mocha Shake or the Iced Baileys Cappuccino!), this place has sandwiches, salads, appetizers, drinks, desserts.... and, they have breakfast, lunch and dinner special prootions for a rather low price!! not exactly a dish, but a coffee: Mocha Shake. which includes vanilla Ice Cream, Chocolate syrup and freshly-made coffee of the greatest quality.
Iced Baileys Cappuccino: the same freshly-made coffee, blended with ice, milk and Baileys Irish Cream. SImply Delicious!!
as for food or sandwiches... The Mozzarella Special is amazing. Its a chicken sandwich, with ham, tomato sauce, and its covered in grilled mozzarella.
the Lomo KIng Sandwich is also very good. ROast Beef with Dijon mustard, resh lettuce and caramelized onions, simply delicious!!
I did not like it
We arrived about 20:30, only one table used inside, we seated and waited about 5 minutes to be attended, we order a pad Thai and a chicken green curry. the pad thai, wasn´t even related with the real thai recipe, no tasty not eatable, and the green curry , also not related with the real recipe, was reazonable good, but was not what I´ve asked. service was slow, we were only 7 people on the restaurant and took about half an hour.
