Squaremeal Review of Ceviche Soho ?

Even on the greyest London day, it’ll feel like summer in this perky Peruvian, which helped to trigger the cuisine’s invasion of the capital. Ceviche’s winningly cheerful service, razor-sharp flavours and punchy Pisco Sours attract a “mixed Soho crowd”, with “very cool” staff adding to the vibe. From the decorative photographs of Lima locals to the jaunty soundtrack, it’s a relentlessly patriotic offer – although everything hinges on the menu: intricate nibbles such as flame-licked eel with avocado and wasabi cream precede a “seriously delicious” selection of ceviches, salads, grilled meats and fish. Tiradito de conchas is a clash of succulent scallops, sea fennel, caviar and puckering lemon juice, while costillas chifa sees pork ribs doused in soy sauce and chilli, then sweetened with pineapple. Vegetarians and gluten-intolerant types will have a field day here, while the helpfully annotated wine list is exclusively South American. A deftly packaged “vibrant” prospect that’s certainly worth the money.

Excellent service but can get crammed

Oct 2014

We visited this place for a late lunch around 4pm and the place was still heaving with hungry diners.Very small gaps between tables, despite this the service was attentive however they had run out of a few popular chevices that we were looking forward to.

Interesting is not the same as good

by   platinum reviewer (94)

Feb 2014

First visit today at lunch which saw us enter a close to empty dining room and leave at a point where leaving or visiting the WC was a serious exercise. The tables are so close together that it might be better to go expecting to eat at communal tables for six- for that is the real effect,- with waiters having real difficulty delivering food and drink to tables; and this having a knock-on effect on service. The food we ate today was variable. We chose seven dishes from across the menu to try a good...

Warm Service/Wonderful Food

by   (3)

Jan 2014

Have been here twice. On the second time, I went with three others. Despite modifying the reservation 3 times in the 36 hours up to it the wait staff were friendly and courteous. All of us found the food delicious – particularly the Don Diablo and Polpo Ceviches. We found two dishes each with some sides was more than ample.

Flavours to remember

by   bronze reviewer (9)

Dec 2013

First time to Ceviche and I was very impressed with the intensity of the flavours and the variety of the food. Tables are very close together so not the place for a discreet chat but otherwise it was great. Not cheap but memorable and will go again

Some different if you a fan of fish & spice

by   (2)

Dec 2013

Whilst I arrived to eat with my clients at mid-day on a Thursday, the restaurant did seem quiet, but the atmosphere changed as more hungry souls arrived. We started with classic Pisco Sours which were a dream and slipped down as if there posh lemon squash. The food was flavoursome, bright and it was my first experience of Ceviche, with the Don Ceviche standing out with its meaty sea bass offering. In fact all the food was great, including the Casava chips, grilled octopus and chorizo, and corriander...

Just a little more elbow room please

by   (2)

Nov 2013

Editor's pick I can highly recomend trying Peruvian Tapas. I had no real idea of what to expect but the food was tasty and different, a real conversation starter. As you would imagine the Ceviche was the star (I reccomend the Salmon) but the side dishes were tasty too. Not a restuarant I would dine in every month and as with any tapas I left wondering if I was actually full. The service was a little shambolic but friendly, they were incredibly busy so our drinks order got a little lost and confused. The restaurant...

Something different with a great vibe

by   (1)

Sep 2013

The atmosphere in the restaurant is buzzy and fun. Having never eaten Peruvian before I was excited to be trying something different and was not disappointed. The Salmon ceviche was out of this world. All dishes were very tasty, a great new experience but not perhaps something I would eat every week. The total bill was slightly more than I expected and they did not remember my friends beer order until I had reminded them 3 times and then 2 beers came at once. But my only real critism is the amount...

Ceviche, Soho

by   bronze reviewer (11)

Jul 2013

Editor's pick Fellow Soho food scene enthusiasts will vouch that a – sans reservations Soho dinner gamble – is a test of patience, elbow sharpness and relatively decent fitness. To get a table you must first survive around the block queues, rain or shine, to then add your name on a bottomless waiting list. Stumbling into Ceviche at prime-time 19:30 on a weekday, tails between our legs we hoped to be fed, preferably that evening. Tables were full so we were squeezed onto the bar which has a lively atmosphere...

    Half a Slice of Toast :: Half a Slice of Toast | Ceviche

    Peruvian food is one of my favourite cuisines. One place I go to get my peruvian fix is Ceviche on Firth Street. The first time I went was for dinner with with my cousin and it didn’t disappoint. My favourite was, of course, the ceviche which was not only fresh and full of flavour but beautiful by design. We had the scallop ceviche which came marinaded in pisco, lime, chilli and coriander and the sea bass ceviche garnished with sweet potato and red onion. Another winner was the octopus and chriozo skewers which were grilled to perfection. I’d quite happily spend the entire evening here eating ceviche and drinking...

    a little lusciousness: BULL IN A CHINA SHOP, SHOREDITCH :: a little lusciousness: CEVICHE, SOHO

    There's nothing like doing a pop up restaurant for 18 people to make me want a luxury holiday. If I could, I'd jet out of the UK to tropical climes the minute I've finished the clearing up but sadly it doesn't happen like that! However, when I get the chance to get out of the house the next day and visit a new and exciting restaurant, serving lots of fresh fish, then that's got to be the next best thing. So after last weekend's pop up that's exactly what I did. Our friend Matt Burgess, who was head chef at Ealing Park Tavern has been snapped up by Ceviche in Soho where he's now running the kitchen. I know wherever...

    Memoirs Of A Metro Girl :: Ceviche review: Raw fish and a bit of spice washed down with a Pisco Sour | Memoirs Of A Metro Girl

    The Mexican food revolution in London took years, but fortunately it’s also brought an appetite for other Latin American cuisines and opened up Londoners’ culinary options even further. Step forward Ceviche, a Peruvian kitchen and Pisco bar in the heart of Soho. The restaurant opened in Spring 2012 on the site of Cafe Emm – a restaurant I loved, but fortunately Ceviche is a good successor. It’s been nearly 10 years since I visited Peru and I remember eating very well there and was particularly fond of the choclo (corn) based dishes and Pisco Sours, so was eager to rediscover the cuisine...

    inher30s :: Ceviche, Soho | inher30s

    Ceviche is a South American favourite, raw fish ‘cooked’ by being marinated in a combination of citrus juices and you can either add a bit of spice to it or change the flavour up with some onions, cilantro etc. It has overtures of the freshness of Japanese cuisine and it’s just not what I expect from South American cuisine – what comes to mind is Corn, Grilled meats and the like...

    The Swindian :: Ceviche- hit and miss in Soho- The Swindian

    My first experience with Peruvian food was a few years ago at Lima, where I left slightly dissatisfied. Ever since then, I have warmed to the cuisine, though I still remain doubtful about which bits I actually enjoy!
    To try and understand this further, I did some research at Señor Ceviche, Lima Floral, and now Ceviche. I’ll focus on the last one in this post, mainly because I didn’t take photos or notes of the other two…
    It was a beautiful day and earlier that morning, I had taken the boat down the river for the first time (using my Oyster!), and so I was certainly in the mood for some great food.
    We...
