It is really a mystery that Hervé Bistro does not have more customers. (2 tables occupied when i went there for lunch). But I guess people want to try the peruvian cuisine and not the french while being in Lima - or living in Lima. That is a huge mistake! Hervé bistro is a restaurant with love to the food. Its not just about misxing a ceviche "the way abuela used to do it" - its about finding the best ingredients and mix them with love to the food and happily present it to the customer.
I had a wonderful starter - 2 eggs poached in a red wine sauce - aboslutely brilliant. A real surprise. Main course - Duck a L'Orange. Heaven opened its gates!!! Wonderful. 2 minisouffles for dessert. Perfect end of a good lunch.
Hervé Bistro is nicely decorated. Soft music in the background. Staff who know their work. An owner taking time to greet customers and thank them for coming.
Can it get better?

one of the best restaurants in Lima. The chef is deeply involved in each detail and gives the feeling that you are his personal guest.

This restaurant is excellent, it deserves a far higher rating than this! We had lunch at Herve, we were the only ones... However, the food was so good i will definitely come back and hope more people get to know this restaurant. There are quite some restaurants on this corner but Herve is for sure one to try while in Lima!

The food is excellent, the service is great and the presentation is superior. I've been twice and it was consistently wonderful. The staff is friendly, helpful and unobtrusive. The food presentation is beautiful and the flavor sublime.

Lovely restaurant with friendly staff. Shame we were the only two in there. My partner had the salmon to start and duck for main and rated it 5*. We are travelling throughtout South America and he still says this is the best meal he has had and we have eaten at some lovely restaurants. Would recommend you go late (after 9pm) on a weekend.
