Throughout my two journeys to the Southern Hemisphere, I had a roughly 4 hour layover at Lima Airport (LIM). I’ve already reviewed the Sumaq VIP Lounge, which is the worldwide contract lounge utilized by most airways on the airport (although it’s not open to Precedence Move members).
On this publish I needed to evaluation the Precedence Move choices within the worldwide terminal at Lima Airport, and particularly the 2 Precedence Move restaurant choices. As a reminder, there are a number of nice premium playing cards that provide Precedence Move memberships.
Hanaq VIP Lounge Lima Airport (Precedence Move lounge)
Lima Airport solely has one “conventional” Precedence Move lounge within the worldwide terminal, which is the Hanaq VIP Lounge. Whereas I might have liked to evaluation it, beneath is what the road seemed wish to get in. In the meantime there was no line to get into the Sumaq VIP Lounge, which isn’t accessible with Precedence Move. It’s sort of unhappy how the road within the beneath image doesn’t even shock me anymore…
Fortuitously there’s some excellent news for Precedence Move members, because the worldwide terminal has two Precedence Move eating places.
La Bonbonniere Lima Airport (Precedence Move restaurant)
La Bonbonniere is the primary Precedence Move restaurant I visited throughout my layover at Lima Airport. The restaurant doesn’t have outlined hours, however somewhat is open from the primary flight to the final flight. The restaurant is positioned within the worldwide terminal, after safety and passport management.
As soon as by way of the responsibility free store maze, simply flip left, after which the restaurant is positioned towards the top of the terminal on the best, close to gate 24.
The restaurant was busy, however there have been nonetheless empty tables. There wasn’t actually a number to seat individuals, however after ready a couple of minutes I managed to flag down a server, who pointed to a desk I might sit down at. There have been QR codes on the tables with menus, so you possibly can discover the total menu right here. Beneath is an abbreviated menu that was posted close to the doorway to the restaurant.
Inside 5 minutes of sitting down the serve got here by my desk. I introduced him my Precedence Move card, and he instantly swiped it. Precedence Move members (besides these with playing cards issued by Amex) obtain a $27 per particular person credit score towards meals and drinks.
To drink I ordered a flat water and a cappuccino. The espresso was actually good, and clearly not machine made.
To eat I ordered the quinoa tremendous salad bowl, which got here with crimson and white quinoa, lentils, broccoli, peas, radishes, grilled avocado, and feta. The salad was tasty, and I might have been pleased with this at a non-airport restaurant.
Whereas the service wasn’t very attentive, it was fairly pleasant, as there clearly simply weren’t many individuals working there. I’d say this was an all-around nice expertise with Precedence Move.
Bleriot Bar & Lounge Lima Airport (Precedence Move restaurant)
Bleriot Bar & Lounge is the opposite Precedence Move restaurant choice on the airport. Conveniently sufficient, it’s actually just some steps from La Bonbonniere, and it’s additionally open every time there’s a flight, so it’s simple to go to each areas (and sure, you may get credit score at each areas on one journey).
That is extra of a bar than a restaurant — the bar has half a dozen stools, after which there’s a sales space subsequent to it, so the full capability might be a dozen individuals.
My Precedence Move card was swiped immediately, and that entitled me to a $27 per particular person credit score. And thank goodness for the credit score, as a result of this place fees New York Metropolis costs for cocktails.
I made a decision to order a negroni mare, in addition to some olives, which stayed underneath the restrict. Whereas the negroni wasn’t low-cost (properly, earlier than Precedence Move footed the invoice), it was superb, and likewise had loads of alcohol in it.
Whereas Precedence Move has crowding points at many lounges, I proceed to be impressed by Precedence Move eating places. Lima Airport occurs to have a restaurant and bar which might be proper by each other, and (non-Amex) Precedence Move members can take pleasure in a $27 per particular person credit score at every.
I had a superb salad and cappuccino at La Bonbonniere, after which adopted that up with a robust negroni at Bleriot Bar & Lounge. Should you’re an eligible Precedence Move member and passing by way of the worldwide terminal on the airport, be sure to verify these out.
Should you’ve visited a Precedence Move restaurant not too long ago, what was your expertise like?
