"Altogether a very pleasant surprise. I was expecting to be disappointed after reading reviews elsewhere but quite the opposite. A lovely, warm, buzzy, bank holiday atmosphere. Very attentive and knowledgeable staff. Excellently prepared, flavourful fish. Expensive, yes but we had a great time "

“Cool music adds to the brilliant vibe for a fun night out” at this “romantic” Peruvian duo in Mayfair and near the Bank of England. The cuisine (charcoal-grilled meat and seafood, plus tacos and Nikkei sashimi) is well-rated, as is the “comprehensive and interesting world-wide wine list”, although some diners find their enthusiasm dampened by “silly prices”. The concept, developed by Anglo-Indian chef Sanjay Dwivedi, has expanded in recent years to Paris, Monaco, Mykonos and moneyed hot-spots in the Middle East.

“A real culinary tour of the best of Peru, with mouthwatering ceviche, smoky grilled meats and show-stopping desserts” (“we were blown away by the freshness and amazing flavour combinations”), “… all washed down with a pisco sour or two”, helped inspire rave reviews in the last survey for this Latino duo – an “impressive-looking subterranean bar/restaurant in Mayfair”, and a similarly “buzzy and relaxed” set-up in the City, tucked away behind the Bank of England. “It’s best if someone else is paying” of course, but past flak about whopping prices was absent this year.

“Good fun and great food is an easy mix” and it’s one this Mayfair fixture carries off with its “wonderful, well-executed Peruvian fare” (“delicious ceviche”), copious Pisco sours and an “ever-buzzy” (“intolerably noisy”) setting. “A decent meal is seldom enhanced by astronomical pricing” however, which can dampen enthusiasm for the experience. Comments on its year-old City sibling near Bank are in a similar vein – “a welcome addition” if a pricey one, with “crowd pleasing food that’s perfect for sharing”. Top Tip: Sommelier Mondays at the City branch with 50% off wine.

For 31 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).
