We ate early on a weeknight so the restaurant was very quiet (but people arrived as we were leaving around 8), but the place itself is very comfy and homely. The service was great, with the waiter and owner both being friendly and accommodating. And the food was fresh and delicious- friend plantains and then a large shared platter was... More

I've walked past this restaurant many times, but finally ate there today for the first time, using a really good Groupon deal they have running. The waiter was very courteous - he made us feel at home straight away, and relaxed. I do like calm service like this, it makes a big difference. The food was delicious. I had a... More

We were at Tierra Peru for dinner and absolutely like it. We have two types of cebiche, prawns and octopus as starter to share and everything was amazing. As main course we have ordered different meals: seco de cordero, lomo saltado and tacacho y chicharron. It was so delicious. And of course Pisco Sour, Peruvian beer and Malbec. Very friendly...

We had a late dinner consisting of a "quinotto" which is like a vegetarian risotto but made from quinoa as well as a plantain chips and salsa. Another dish was Chicarrone de Cerdo a kind of pork stew with sweet potato and cassava--the meat was a little tough. I am still rating as very good given the other things we... More

My friend and I were looking for somewhere to have lunch and decided to eat at Tierra Peru, after the local Ecuadorian restaurant tried to mis-sell us lunch! We weren't disappointed. The food was great, the staff were friendly and gave us helpful information on the dishes we were having - which was good, considering we didn't know what we... More

Weekday evening meal for 2. As we stood outside, a waiter/manager came rushing out to try and entice us in. I said to him, "we are going to a show, so we need to be quick." He replied, "No problem", so we entered. We chose a table, looked at the menu and ordered. So far, so good. The drinks were... More

I came to dine to this lovely restaurant with some friends who are Peruvian and we absolutely adored the food and overall the whole dining experience. This restaurant in our opinion is the closest to the original food in Peru. The quantity and quality are superb, try the sharing platters you can't go wrong with any of them. If you... More

Visited this restaurant on Sat 12/11/16, there were four of us. Waited well over an hour for our starter to arrive which was average. I had lamb for main and was disappointing, the portion was stingy (3 small pieces of lamb) and the rest of the dish was made up of rice, although not bad in taste it wasn't good... More
