We ate a wonderful dinner with drinks and dessert. The decor was so extraordinary I asked the waitress, Destiny, to tell me about the building. She brought over Liz the manager/owner. Liz was so kind and told us a about the building that was built in 1880 and showed us all around. The building was part of the old Metropolitan Bank. T ... read more

Delicious! We had an excellent server too. I had the chicken salad on a croissant with a side salad, one in our party had the soup of the day and salad and one had a flat bread pizza. The restaurant is well done, reasonably priced and was a lovely place for lunch.

Some friends and I were in Lima last weekend for a square dance festival. We ate at The Met Friday night because it was a short walk from our hotel.

Superb dining experience - best in Lima. We ate there on a Saturday at 8:30 pm. The Bacon infused Bloody Mary ($10) was unique but a bit too Smokey for my liking so I will try the non-bacon version next time.
