Full flavours and good drinks!

Get a pisco sour and a yuca fries with the cheese sauce (the first starter). Simply sinful with a kick. The ceviches are excellent too! A great place for some exotic flavours and friendly staff.

We dropped in on a Saturday afternoon during a day trip to London after finding a voucher on Living Social. It's a modest establishment but the food was sensational. We had the buffet, which had a small but accomodating selection, including a decent amount of salads/sides and various crunchy beans/kernels etc. I was impressed at the fact I could eat... More

I went to this restaurant with my boyfriend and booked this place based on the review in Tripadvisor. The restaurant is very nice and all the dishes we ordered were delicious and perfectly cooked. We was served by a lovely Spanish girl who suggested many dishes from the menu and all the dishes were just perfect. I highly recommend this... More

I am half Peruvian and half French, since I was a kid my Peruvian mother always cooked delicious food from Peru, i went to study to Peru for a few years and learnt all the secrets about this wonderful cuisine, becoming a connoisseur and a fan.

I hardly ever venture up to islington these days but an Aussie friend of mine was staying there so we met up for dinner at Tierra Peru. We had tiraditas de vieira, tamlitos, tacu tacu a lo pobre and carapulcra then dessert including the chilli ice cream. All presented beautifully and full of rich colour and flavour. It was a...

This was all right. Starter was tamalita de pollo, corn mash with a kind of stewed chicken -or pork if you want - over the top. My main was a kind of pork, potato and peanut stew. The tinterweb tells me it's called 'carapulcra'; sounds about right. I wouldn't say it changed my world, but it was reasonable enough. A... More
