Such a fantastic evening. We had the tasting menu which is well worth it! Buzzing restaurant, great service and fantastic food. Couldn’t have asked for more.

Lovely food, we’d just come from a concert at cadogan hall so a few dishes to share was perfect. There was a sheltered terrace which we really enjoyed. Lovely atmosphere at staff. Excellent all round.

Delicious and original Peruvian food and cocktails! The service however is really bad... We got our table 50minutes late even though we had reserved, no complimentary cocktails or deserts to apologise and on top of that the young man managing the reservations and the room was useless and quite obnoxious. This is really not great when you are having a family meal...

Nice meal but on the whole the standard has dropped in the last year or so, which is a shame as this used to be one of our favourite restaurants!

I’d been once before and it was excellent. I brought a group of friends this time and while the food was good, the service was just a little off. It was a busy Thursday. I’d still recommend it

I've been to Chicama a few times and normally the experience is amazing. This time however, our service was VERY rushed, and the food just kept coming out before we had a chance to finish the previous course. In the end, the hot, grilled food was cold by the time we finished the ceviche and the plates weren't exchanged between courses either -- This was despite even asking the server things down a bit. That said, individually, each the early courses were delicious, and the later courses would have tasted nice if they had been served hot. On this occasion I was disappointed, but maybe the restaurant was just having a bad night.

Good food but portions are simply too small. Tried the tasting menu for 3, and it’s at most a modest meal for 2. Not good value for money.

The restaurant was very busy. The service was good and the staff attentive. The chairs are old fashioned and gave very small seats - which means the larger individual might not find them that comfy! Very tasty food. We had two pisco sours each! It is pricey but good for a special occasion.

We Arrived and the table I booked was not ready , it was to busy so we had to wait outside in the cold .

Once we got inside the service was poor we had a long wait for our order to be taken and once we had our order taken they had got the drinks order wrong .

The food arrived and was some what smaller then we had expected and there was a considerable wait between courses .

The restaurant was incredibly loud and hard to hear each other speak let alone enjoy your meal .

Overall I would not recommend this restaurant to a friend or family

Excellent.
We booked a table outside but on arrival we were offered 2 seats at the bar.
We had a stunning evening watching the lovely bartender at work.
We were even offered a sample of the drinks we were watching her prepare.
Fabulous evening with AMAZING food.
Will be back.

Good food, excellent service, friendly and informative. Highlights were the tapioca marshmallow, courgette snacks, broccoli (that coffee sauce is amazing), and grilled market fish. The tacos are good but could do with a splash more of acidity. The Peruvian hot chocolate is also worth trying! Love the sharing plates concept as with other Peruvian restaurants, but do find its a little bit expensive for lunch.
