Summary

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

Summary

“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.

Summary

“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.

Summary

“Bring your tastebuds alive!”, say fans of the “great food and even better Pisco sours” at these “cool” and “lively-if-noisy” hangouts (“like a holiday in Peru!”), in Soho and near Old Street. But while “interesting, not all dishes are entirely successful”.

"Disappointing. Our 2nd visit because we were really impressed the 1st time. This time the food was not particularly well cooked and the beer was not so cold. Example: we had the pork belly on both visits. The 1st time the crackling was really crisp and tasty; this time it was soft and chewy. A worrying lack of consistency."
