We were enticed I'm by a free cocktail which is always a bonus. The free drink was nice after a couple of mouthfuls as it was quite sour. The meal was really flavoursome and very tasty albeit rather carbohydrate heavy - rice and potatoes in one meal! Cannot complain about the meal though as it was really good. Bit cheeky... More

I went to this restaurant on saturday night with my husband as I havebought a Groupon. It was the best Groupon ever! There were no restrictions on dishes and we were not treated as Groupon customers as it happened in another restaurants. The food is absolutely delicious and the portions very generous. Great service in a lovely place. The only... More

We came here with expectations of an authentic Peruvian dining experience. Perhaps choosing the 'Buffet Option' was not the best start! We were not convinced by the selection of pots of buffet food on display so asked for the A La Carte menu instead. The waiter advised that most of the dishes on the main menu were in the buffet...

Atmosphere was warm and welcoming and the waitress gave us good advice to choose our meal. We had a very good dinner of ceviche, lomo saltado, dessert and wine for a very reasonable price. I absolutely recommend it!

Restaurant was empty when I arrived just after lunch on a Friday in late May but I was warmly greeted by the lone waitress who allowed me the pick of the seating. I selected a fresh squeezed guava juice to start and started the very difficult process of choosing from their menu. Just to be clear, the menu is not... More

The restaurant is beautifully thought-out and crafted with great care to provide a cosy, yet authentic-feeling, Peruvian eatery. It was busy so booking is a must. The food was absolutely PHENOMENAL and jam-packed with flavour. We had the braised duck and the steak fillet with parmesan tagliatelle that we could not get enough of. The home made lemonade is simply... More

I booked the restaurant to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday. We both love Peruvian food and having travelled in Peru and having tried other Peruvian restaurants in London, we thought of trying Terra Peru this time. Our expectations were exceeded at all levels. We ordered the chef's recommendations on the menu including the Peruvian Pisco and absolutely adored everything. The passion... More
