Isolina is a tribute to the spirit and flavors of our beloved taverns of yesteryear; to that Peruvian kitchen at home and to the forgotten recipes in old notebooks. A relaxed atmosphere makes us a space to eat, drink and have a good time, where spontaneous laughter and the freedom to eat as everyone wishes are celebrated.

What we offer

We want to rescue traditions that, beyond a plate and a glass, are transferred to their environment, to their music, to their smells and sensations. The idea of ​​sharing at home takes over a menu that we constantly renew, made up of generous platters that go to the center of the table and where each person decides the portions they want to taste.

Among stews prepared for long hours, tasty dressings that do not seek delicacies but memories, sandwiches, chilcanos, beers and classic cocktails. We want to be the meeting point between this

Our chef: José del Castillo

After studying journalism and business administration, José entered the D'Gallia Institute, where his true passion was born: traditional and homemade cooking from Peru. He was 28 years old and had a lot of flavor to share.

In 2001 he took over the stores of La Red, his mother's restaurant (Isolina Vargas) founded in 1981. Under his leadership, the restaurant became a benchmark in the Lima gastronomic circuit, consolidating itself in 2009 with the opening of its second location. Fish and shellfish led the new menu proposal, but without abandoning its Creole origins.

In 2015 Isolina opened its doors, a tribute to his mother whose culinary proposal seeks to rescue the flavors forgotten in old cookbooks and value the food of yesteryear. Currently, José is working on this adventure, always thinking of a new meeting point for all those who like to eat delicious food around a good table.
