50Best Accolades
  • No.12 Latin America's 50 Best Restaurants 2019

Based out of a charming historical mansion in bohemian Barranco, chef José del Castillo serves up delicious vats of nostalgia via Peruvian comfort food at this Latin America’s 50 Best mainstay. Named for his mother, Isolina specialises in generous traditional dishes, usually originating from Lima, designed for sharing. For those with the stomach, Castillo’s numerous offal dishes, such as beef brain tortilla or tripe and fried blood stew, are extremely moreish and always authentic. Book an upstairs table for buzzy ambience and photogenic decor. If spending a little time in Lima, you may come across the Castillo family’s La Red Cevicherías in the San Miguel and Miraflores district.
