Great addition to the London scene! I have been to Peru a few times and tried many peruvian restaurants in other countries. Ceviche did not disappoint. Initially I was put off by some of the reviews I read but I am glad we went nonetheless. We were 6 people and tried pretty much everything on the menu. Peruvian food is delicate and requires certain expertise.. in light of that, prices are reasonable. Nobu is also Peruvian and they charge at least double for some of the same dishes.
We kicked off with corn & fried yuca; perfect to have the first pisco and/or cusquena beer. The ceviches / tiraditos (seabass, octopus) were spot on and delicious. So refreshing we ordered them again. We also loved the anticuchos (octopus and beef, no corazon for us) and the arroz con pato. I thought that the lomo saltado could be improved and also the quinoa salad (both good but I've tried much better). Desserts: Lucuma ice cream was amazing and the chirimoya was also yummy.
The atmosphere was great, very lively (saturday night) and we had a very nice waitress who provided some good comments about what to order.
Something to improve: I will add more dishes, particularly different ceviches/tiraditos. Salmon is too safe (and boring).
My only negative comment will be the booking system… it took a few calls, when I phoned on the day they claimed not to have my booking (made more than 10 days in advance) and then, they phoned me later to confirm a table for half an hour before of the time agreed. I was confused so I called them again & they blamed it on the system.
We shall be back!
