Just like Marcope said, the expensive tourist hotels will be open.
Christmas is a day when people spend time with their family.
Even in the provinces, Christmas and New years eve is quite dull.
We were spending Christmas sitting under a palmtree in our garden with a bottle of Casillero Del Diablo and a box of Cuban cigars.
Don't agree (surprise!) Christmas Eve everything starts closing at noon, don't think you'd have much luck finding decent restaurants open. That's the real family celebration time for Christmas for Peruvians. Christmas Eve dinner typically goes on into the wee hours of the morning. Christmas Day is more or less anti-climatic. People are sleeping late from staying up the night before, and start thinking about eating again in the afternoon. I think you'll find many restaurants open, especially in Miraflores. I'm sure Larcomar will be open as well and there are several restaurants open there. Also, the Tiendecita Blanca across the Parque Kennedy has a Christmas Brunch.
