Lima Criolla review image

Lima Criolla Peruvian Restaurant


When the weather gets warm, Lima Criolla at The Linc is one of our favorite places to go to escape the heat. There’s a large indoor dining room that’s usually bustling with people, and a big patio out front that never gets too busy. But most importantly, the drinks are cheap—pisco and cachaca-based cocktails start at just $6—and there’s a pretty long menu of classic Peruvian ceviches. We like the ceviche mixto, which comes out as a heaping plate of fish, shrimp, mussels, and squid in a lime dressing, with the requisite sweet potatoes, steamed, and crispy corn for both texture and sweetness.
