About

This restaurant is permanently closed. This quirky casual Peruvian eatery in the heart of Soho will have you drooling. From delicious juicy Butifarra's, chicken tamales to fresh ceviche and nutritious quinoa salads.
It's all about BYOB here, which means for £5 per head you can bring and drink as much booze as you'd like! (The cheapest option for central London) alternatively they makee fresh Peruvian cold press juices in house which are sure to quench your thirst.
Butifarra has something for everyone, day or night, you're sure to leave smiling.

The Butifarra sandwiches were good, moist, full of flavour and a large size. The quality of the dish cannot be faulted.

The low score is based on service and ambience. When we arrived at 7:30pm about 50% of the sides dishes from the already small menu were not available and service was fair. Despite the minimal 5 tables in the entire restaurant we were sat in front of our finished plates for over half an hour waiting to be cleared. The restaurant was borderline empty and there was no excuse to get missed like that!

I would say Butifarra is perfect for a takeaway sandwich, as you will get a tasty yet cheap bite to eat. If you do decide to eat in, the only bonus is that it is a BYOB venue.

Big fun of peruvian cuisine. Butifarra offers a focused menu of ceviches, arepas, salads, original soft drinks and other. The venue is small and not too comfi, but food was quite good and service was ok. Very inexpensive, in contrast with many other peruvian restaurats. We will come back for more...

Great food and great location for our pre theatre but the restaurant doesn't look most glamorous - very popular

Great little place - unassuming and lovely food - small portions make for a light meal - beware of the Bring-Your-Own-Booze policy which is not obvious on Open Table and disappointing when you want a nice glass of wine with your food. Nice staff too.

disappointing given all the good reviews! the sandwiches were good but the ceviche was average at best. Worth going for a quick cheap meal, and you can take your own booze. But wouldn't recommend otherwise

Four of us went for a speedy supper on Friday night before a party. Nice that you can book tables, as it's tiny! We ordered a butifarra each & then shared most of the sides: quinoa salad, potatoes, ceviche, chicken wings. The butifarra and the chicken wings were the highlights. The potatoes were cold & it would have been better if they were hot. Service was speedy and with a smile. Would probably return if in the area for a quick bite.

First time visiting Butifarra but will most certainly be going back. Tiny little place with only a few tables but they happily seated six of us. The staff were really friendly and the food was fantastic; for such a small restaurant we were really impressed with the variety of the menu. And really cheap too! Just don't forget that it is BYOB if you want something alcoholic with your meal. Couldn't want anything more from an informal lunch with friends in central London.
