Martin Morales' restaurant, of course, focuses on ceviche - freshly caught sustainable fish cold-cooked in Tiger’s Milk marinade made from lime juice and Peruvian aji chilli. You'll be able to sit on the Ceviche Bar and watch the Cevichero Chef prepare them freshly in front of you, while sipping on Peru’s national drink, the Pisco Sour, from Ceviche’s Pisco Bar, the first of its kind in Britain.

"This place is brilliant. The cooking is super-confident, rare and interesting, the look of the room is great and the bar must be fantastic in the evening, the music is lovely, the staff are incredibly sweet and kind... And it’s cheap." READ REVIEW

"I really like ceviche, and I really liked Ceviche. They have a ceviche bar at the restaurant, and do a good job of stressing the variety of which the dish is capable." READ REVIEW

"“Peru is probably going to be the next most important revolution in culinary history,” Ferran Adria said in an interview last year. The El Bulli chef is one of a growing number of fans of the cuisine. Count me in." READ REVIEW

"Whether Ceviche authentically reflects the scope of Peruvian cooking, I'm not the person to ask. But with its buzzy atmosphere, reasonable prices and emphasis on big, bold flavours, it's a very welcome introduction." READ REVIEW

"Apart from the steak, then, the food at Ceviche is good. Service was pitch-perfect too, not too friendly and not too stuffy, all young and enthusiastic and trendily-attired in that New Soho informal way pioneered by Polpo and Spuntino... but at nearly £70 for really not that much food, this is not a restaurant that either produces anything with enough of a wow factor to justify the prices..."

"A colleague who followed in our footsteps at dinner time the same day, opined that prices – perhaps a consequence of a menu which is of necessity heavy on the protein front – were on the high side. Given the novelty and the overall high standards of the place, however, she was able to endorse our favourable overall impression." READ REVIEW

"Ceviche has a menu that's refreshingly different, it looks cool, the service is friendly. We were less impressed by the small plate sizes and the steep pricing, particularly of the desserts (around a fiver for a morsel)." READ REVIEW

"Ceviche is clearly a great addition to London dining in that it allows you to try a distinctive cuisine in authentic form without crossing the world to do so. Or to revisit it, if you have been or come from there." READ REVIEW

"Ceviche has succeeded in bringing something new to the London restaurant scene and with great staff, fresh ingredients and the promise of a party atmosphere you feel this little bit of Lima is going to make a splash." READ REVIEW

Very interesting new place. A gastronomical adventure.

Addictive Pisco Sour. Good menu too.

Delicious starters, Specially the terrific ceviches.

Mediocre main courses. Let down specially by the Arroz con Mariscos that lacks flavour & was overcooked.

Need to improve the desserts, specially the Suspiro de Chirimoya; such delicate fruit flavour was overpowered by the manjar. Lucuma Ice Cream eas ok. Scrumptious Chocolate 002 though.
Interesting Macerados.
