The food portions were small and expensive for the size! The sauce that came with my main was cold but to be fair, the lamb that came with it was cooked nicely. My partner ordered pork and it was all fatty with no meat. They also go out of the way to wait at the door and open it for... More

We were really pleased we tried this informal Peruvian restaurant in Islington after reading the trip advisor reviews. We had a lovely and interesting lunch and if you go on Saturday or Sunday there is a buffet for £21 a head and if, like us, you aren't too familiar with Peruvian food you can try a bit of everything. We... More

at a friends suggestion we headed off to Islington to try a new cuisine to me, Peruvian. An unassuming frontage didn't put us off...it was busy and that's usually a good sign. Very friendly staff and wonderful food! The Ceviche was tremendous, good, reasonably priced wine, all washed down with Peruvian grappa.....will be retuning soon.

I've just had dinner at Tierra Perú with my partner and I have to say all the dishes we ordered were amazing, delicious and perfectly cooked, everything was so full of flavour and their lovely staff makes it an even more enjoyable experience. We were served by a lovely spanish girl called Deli who kindly suggested and explained many dishes... More

Went with a group of four family members and we all loved everything. The waiter was very helpful and nice, the atmosphere perfect and the food delicious. Especially the ceviche and the lamb stew. Yum! It wasn't expensive at all and we'll certainly come back soon

I discover this restaurant through Time Out magazine on one of my visits to London. Having travelled to Peru a couple of times it was refreshing to find a Peruvian restaurant near the central and busy area of Islington. The restaurant was very busy so we opted for a seat at the bar. The barman was so charming and attentive,... More

I have travelled to Peru before and tried the peruvian food in Peru. Tierra Peru is a great addition to the London escene, the food and the drinks are ti die for. The food quality and presentation it's amazing and, for the money you pay, it's a great value for money. I can't wait to go back, highly recommended!

Had the most wonderful meal at Tierra Peru. Food, atmosphere, service cannot be faulted. If you are looking for a great place for a nice meal you should go.

The food was good and well presented but prices are too high for quality of ingredients and portion size. The waitresses were nice and friendly, the atmosphere as well... maybe the tables were very close to each other which was a bit inconvenient. In any case, I guess... I would recommend to try.
