Rafael, calle San Martin
Pueblo Libre, Lima View On Map
Rafael is hailed as one of the super chefs of our time. I regularly visit Lima and finally got the chance to eat there. Peru is a great place for the coeliac as they are the home of potatoes, quinoa and corn! Rafael is fine dining, originally he trained in London at the River Cafe but after traveling came back to his native Lima. The service was excellent and the waiters completely understood about food intolerance if not coeliac disease per se and gave me good advice. I chose a beautiful dish of pan fried sea bass fillet on a seafood risotto surrounded by a delicious seafood foam and topped with a fresh tasting salcita crudo of peppers, onion, lime juice and cilantro. Portion sizes in Peru are larger than in the UK, but it was still a delicious well balanced dish, perfectly cooked fish and a excellent range of flavours. I remember there being one gluten free pudding, but it looked a bit filling but a wonderful range of ice creams and sorbets I had two scoops of sorbet made of fruits unique to Peru Chirimoya (like a giant richer Custard Apple) with Mango and Champagne and Camu Camu which was a wonderful Barbie Pink. Both were delicious and the surroundings had a simple elegance without being overly ostentatious. It was a treat of course and it is a little pricey in relative terms for Peru, expect to pay around $30 for lunch.

Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge
Carretera Hiram Bingham, Machu Picchu View On Map
Sanctuary Lodge was a much needed oasis in the heart of Machu Picchu- nothing was too difficult. My traveling partner has Coeliac disease so can't eat gluten. Everywhere else we went this was very difficult to explain, however the staff at sanctuary lodge went out oftheir way to select appropriate dishes for her, even cooking gluten free bread rolls especially for her. The other surprise when we arrived was to find all meals, alcohol and mini bar were included in our room price. The location at the entrance to Machu Picchu meant we could easily get up in time to join the limited number of hikers allowed to climb Waynapicchu- the peak you recognize in all the famous photos. The view from the top was amazing and even more enjoyable knowing a hot shower was waiting for us on our return. After checkout they have a day room for us to relax in which includes showers, tea, coffee and tv. The staff seemed as though they loved having us there so much, and only wishes they could do even more. By far the friendliest place we stayed so far in south America. An expensive night, but then you only do it once, so why not do it in style?
