Side-step the hassle of decision-making

Lima’s food is all about gutsy, flavoursome dishes. Incredibly for a Michelin-starred restaurant, the set lunch/pre-theatre meal is a steal at just £20 for two courses.

Top grub, looking pretty

Michelin-starred Lima serves food that looks as good as it tastes. The octopus is not a creature renowned for its beauty, but here after being lightly braised with olives and white quinoait’s prettified with leaves and flowers. Served as a starter, you’ll wish there was more of it.

User Reviews

Reviewed by Susan from Abbey Road
Really enjoyed the unusual dishes here - felt as though (despite a filling 3 course dinner) I hadn't gone overboard on calories as it all tasted so fresh and relatively light; the asparagus in particular was beautifully cooked and presented without overbearing flavours which would have drowned it out. I would definitely go back as soon as my purse allows!!
