Hopefully we can add to this list little by little, and follow up and comment if we try the recommendations of others. I can't speak for the anyone else, but my wife and I love checking out new places if the food is yummy. And I'm talking markets, wharves, wherever... So, anything goes.
Let me get the ball rolling with a recommendation for a typical Arequipeño restaurant, located in Surquillo where we've been a couple of times. Nothing fancy, but much more than a menu joint. Lunch for two should run between 50 to 80 soles. I think it is only open for lunch.
Rinconcito de Tiabaya
Manuel Irribarren 962
No web site.. and no reservations needed....
Usually someone on hand to watch cars outside. Note, the area is a little dicey, it´s not the best idea to walk there.

Aventuras Marinas - https://goo.gl/maps/Z262djmvYmuy3hex5 - 2 min from MF Parque Central/JFK Park - best ceviche I have had in Lima. It's a hole in the wall kind of place but the food is brilliant. $$
Puerto Norte -https://goo.gl/maps/vph1CYYs8C5wCGup9 - around the corner from Real Plaza Centro Cívico. Discovered this on my many trips to migraciones. Been here dozens of times. Never disappoints. The trio combo is to die for. $$$
Best burgers in Lima: Papi Carne -https://goo.gl/maps/oVfjvZ81PdLBg5FF9 - They also have wings and ribs but never tried those. Burgers are excellent. $
Excellent Indian food: Mantra - https://goo.gl/maps/EJCVcUHQfVwHFWqUA - There's a few good Indian restaurants in Lima but Mantra is in my opinion the best. $$$
