“Still the best Peruvian cuisine in London and still a go-to for a reliable, enjoyable meal out” with “tons of atmosphere” – so say fans of Martin Morales’s “vibrant and fun” Latino cantinas in Soho and Shoreditch, known for their “street-ish dishes with interesting combos” and “lovely pisco sours”. Ratings came off the boil a little in the last survey, however, but in November 2019 it was saved from administration by Alex and Saiphin Moore of Rosa’s Thai fame. As of November 2020 Ceviche Old Street is no longer listed as a location on the website, and we have marked it closed (even though it’s still only ‘Temporarily’ closed on Google).

Ratings came off the boil a little this year, though, with the view aired by one or two reporters that “you can get much better ceviche at much better prices elsewhere”.

“The flavours are like being back on Lake Titicaca” – Martin Morales’s Peruvian operation with venues in Soho and Old Street “delivers a gastronomical explosion on the palate”, with “really flavoursome and unusual combinations of ingredients” including “fish like no other”. They “may not have a Michelin star, but can’t be beaten although others try”. Top Tip: pisco sour cocktails.

“Amazing, seriously tasty dishes, with lots of fresh tastes”, and washed down with “perfect Pisco sours” instill high esteem for these “buzzy” (if “rather noisy”) Latino ventures, in Soho and near Old Street.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
