17 Frith Street
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.

Well this restaurant certainly has a great feel to it set on Frith Street in the heart of Soho serving excellent Peruvian food with fantastic & friendly service made for a amazing early evening feast. We hoped the food would be good especially when you know the creator of the menu is Martin Morales and indeed it was. The staff were excellent and gave you great advice plus recommendations on how many courses to order from each part of the menu which is a Tapas style menu. We started with the Nibbles and fantastic Crunchy Peruvian Corn , Pork Wanton Fritters & Yellow Fin Tuna Tartare just heaven then onto the Ceviche Bar section for a Sea Bass ceviche we had this with the Solteron Salad of Palm Heart, Feta Cheese & Corn truly delightful. Next to the Grill section for my favourite Octopus and it didn't disappoint absolutely stunning we also had the Beef Heart which was amazing. So onto the Classic Favourite where we had the King Prawns & Beef Fillet just sublime. Then you think it's time for dessert but not quite yet the food was so good we had to try a couple more so we had the Scallop Tiradito and the Squid Barbacoa just fantastic. Now it's dessert time & definitely worth the wait as The Choco Banana was heaven. This was all accompanied by the great Cocktails , Beers & Wine . We will definitely be returning and I would highly recommend putting this place on your list
Tasty food. Great service. Fantastic vibe. What more could you want from a restaurant. I always leave happier and more satisfied with my life than when I came it.

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.
