Great service and excellent food. And not too pricey!
I will definitively come back.

I loved the relaxed atmosphere. There was a DJ playing music all night. It was loud enough to enjoy it but not too loud that we could not have a decent conversation at the table.
We did not have to wait too long for the food and it was delicious.

This is a beautiful restaurant, the setting makes you feel like you're in a stunning Italian piazza (only you're actually indoors and cosy). The food is adventurous and delicious and unlike anywhere else I've been. Whilst we ordered the non veg set menu, some of the best dishes were in fact the veggie ones so it'd be great if you you're a veggie too. We left full and very happy. Only slight gripe was the person serving us was quite awkward which was a bit weird, maybe it was his first day. Anyway, we highly recommend this place for a special romantic dinner or a group of friends, it's a treat.

It was a bit overpriced for what it was . Staff were lovely but the brunch menu wasn’t great. I wouldn’t return.

We really enjoyed our trip - the food was exceptional and the cocktails were great. It is fairly pricey, but service was also good except for a slight frustration with staff at the end.

The food was overpriced for what it was and portions were small. The food was quite nice but nothing outstanding. Service was almost two attentive with three different waiters asking if we were ready to order.

This was my second visit and unfortunately it was nowhere near as good as my first visit. I think this a combination of the menu changing and the amount of covers they have for a small space, which inevitably affects the waiters ability to be attentive or even notice you.

As I mentioned the menu has changed and not for the better, previously the menu was small tapas and of a sharing concept. We ordered 'POLLITO A LA BRASA’, LAMB’S LETTUCE, LEMON THYME', BEEF SHORT RIB, DUCK ON RICE, BROCCOLI and CARAMELISED AUBERGINE, PEANUTS, CORIANDER OIL. The portions were absolutely massive and for 2 people this was WAY too much food, I have been to many a tapas restaurant and the server always recommends the amount of dishes required. A good server would have informed us that we had ordered too many dishes. In addition to this the quality of the food was very disappointing! I would visit again but for drinks not food.

The bottomless brunch aspect of the meal was great- £25 for what ended up being 3 bottles of Prosecco between two. However the food was disappointing, and the waiter didnt give us great recommendations or help us through the menu. We got a "main special" because we were advised that this was the best option, but it was tiny and came with nothing (which we were also not advised about).

Forgot a cocktail for ages, so by the time it arrived we had to order another for my wife. Then forgot one of the courses on the tasting menu.

Very energetic atmosphere, and nice look and feel of the restaurant. However, the music was a bit too loud. We had the tasting menu. Which is a good way to try different dishes from the menu that you might not have chosen yourself. But some of the flavours were quite overwhelming, like soy. I didn't like it that they served the dishes (starters and mains) in random/mixed order. Deserts were delicious. Overall we liked the restaurant, but we found the tasting menu medium value for money. I probably wouldn't come back in the (near) future.

Although the menu looked fascinating, the actual food was not special. There was yuzukosho tzatziki with zero taste of yuzukosho, for example. We are group of 5, and so sampled quite a number of dishes and all of them were just ok. Even coffee was disappointing.

Good location but i bet it'll be hard to survive in the competitive Shoreditch neighbourhood

It was ok. The potions were too small for the price especially the ‘large’ portions. Expect to spend a lot as it’s tapas style. The music was too loud but we had some lovely people serving us which made the night wonderful!

We had the £65 festival tasting menu and it's really good! We're visiting from Australia so it's great to get to try a good selections of the menu! Certainly got some interesting Peruvian Asian fusions there, some great flavor combinations! My favorite was the "duck on rice"!

Love this place! We sampled almost the entire menu. My favourite is the Cheun Fat (I'm sure I've spelled this incorrectly). It was gorgeous! The aubergine is also divine.

It was delightful - I booked a table for a romantic date and it was simply perfect. We went there without much prior knowledge about the Peruvian cuisine, but the waiting staff helped the experience not feel daunting whatsoever - they were very friendly and very helpful, always there to provide recommendations. The place felt very welcoming and casual, with a very nice hint of fancy, and the food was terrific - my partner kept catching me closing my eyes in delight from the bite. Definitely going to come back.

Booked a table for brunch on a Saturday. Staff was incredible - everyone from the person who seated us (and offered us such a perfect spot at the bar in the back along the window, especially as it was a nice day), to our server and the person working behind the counter in the back. The setting, ambiance, decor, music, cleanliness were all top notch. The food and drink options were varied, with great options for all dietary needs. And the actual plating of the food and drinks and the flavour of everything was honestly so good. Can’t wait to come back. Have already recommended to others.
