My friends and I, four in total of a Spanish speaking country, had a great feast of exotic flavours on the night, the service, the wine, and the atmosphere were great. We will definitely go back. The only thing is that we were expecting to only speak Spanish but two of our waiters did not speak the native language, It... More

We had a tasting platter based on fish (cheviche in different style) but we ask for some mix and had a go on the lamb too - just delicious, in an... More

I informed them that I was allergic to gluten and proceeded to order a starter that was labelled gluten free and then, only after questioning, was informed that the dish contained a beer sauce and so was not suitable. Then ordered the... More

Peruvian cuisine is hugely trendy at the moment, and this little gem of a place on Essex Road is the first time I've tried what is becoming renowned as the best of Latin American food. There's a Spanish tapas feel initially but both the differences and similarities become obvious as we indulge in as much Inca fare as we can.... More

I had never tried Peruvian food and I can't believe I waited this long! It was truly delicious. It happened to be a buffet day (a la carte menu available) and tried various dishes....well worth it. Lots of vegetarian choices too for me so we had great time. Service was excellent too. Deli looked after us so well. I recommend... More

We had booked a table for 4 at Tierra Peru for 9pm via an email booking site. We arrived at the restaurant at 9:07 and were told that our table had been let go because it was restaurant policy that tables are released if customers had not arrived within 10 minutes of the booking time. I showed our host my... More
