Last night a group of four of us went to Viru for the first time on the recommendation of tripadvisor. Two of us knew Peruvian food from being in Peru, myself included. We all had high expectations of modern Peruvian food. We were far from disappointed. As we arrived at 9.30pm after a long day we elected for the 6... More

I am a big fan of Peruvian cuisine. As a matter of fact, it is amongst my favorite, having tried at least 4 Peruvian restaurants in Madrid, and one each in Amsterdam, Paris, London, Düsseldorf and a number in Lima. The fresh ingredients artistically combined by Viru's chef are delightful, with delicious results. You are best off with the menu... More

This is a good example for a mixture of an upmarket and traditional environment with lovely peruvian food and very friendly staff.

"OLD DOG LEARNS NEW TRICKS" is the headline. My old dog palate thought it knew plenty about food, textures, colors and flavors. But thank heaven, there's always something new. What isn't so usual is that the new is so incredibly amazing. There is much to enjoy in a cuisine done at the top level, combining doses of South America, Mediterranean,... More

It is quite easy to evalute: food is great, a mix between the origins and new cuisine. Very equilibrated. The place is quite and respects the privacy you will need to enjoy the meal with your mates. The unique cons can be it is little bit expensive for the current economics.

Virú is a jewel. For those of us who have sampled Peruvian cuisine in its origins, this Madrid restaurant takes everything in the menu to a superior level: the ingredients are fresh, the chef adds imginative touches without transforming any dish into something unrecognisable. The service is exquisite. Tables well separated to enjoy your own conversations without your neighbour's banter.... More

Excellent Peruvian restaurant on a par with the much more expensive Astrid & Gastón.Very nice décor and attentive service. Delicious starters (don't miss the Tiradito Asia-Perú), main courses (butterfish, manta ray, criollo rice) and even desserts (which we had read were not the best part of the menu - notin our opinion) You will get an incredible freshly-baked bread with...

A beautiful restaurant. The most attentive, helpful and friendly service. Food of a quality and presentation we have not experienced before, made this an evening to remember. We would rank the meal and evening here as one of our best ever and would travel across the world to repeat it.

I was impressed by the place - everything we tried was delicious, excellent ingredients, original dishes (well at least for those not very into Peruvian cuisine), One of the friends was from Peru and she liked the food very much as well. The atmosphere is very quite and pleasant and the service is great. Very recommendable for those who like... More
