Best restaurant I’ve been to in Manchester for ages. The food was so fresh, spicy and delicious. Decor and cocktails were fab too!

Really nice atmosphere mid-week - chilled and not too loud so you can just relax. Food is amazing, it's not the cheapest place by any means but you do get what you pay for. Cocktails also delivered a real taste of Peru (what I went for, as I'd been to Peru recently and missed these flavours!)

Really enjoyed everything about our dining experience. Went before the theatre and it’s in a perfect location for this purpose.
Arrived early and ordered cocktails at the bar; the manager was extremely apologetic that the wait on them was longer than usual due to a lot of patrons ordering cocktails. It was no problem at all as I was able to go and sit at our table rather than having to hang around the bar and the drinks were bought over. Once we’d been seated at our dining table we ordered more cocktails and the manager kindly gave them us on the house which was a really nice gesture.

Having visited Peru I was really impressed with the authenticity of recipes available and was spoilt for choice with the menu. I liked that there were different ways to dine as could choose small plates and eat tapas style or more traditional starter/main.
The service was excellent and there were plenty of staff considering the restaurant is quite small.
Will be booking again and ordering the steak as it looked delicious!

I was really excited about going here as I love Peruvian food and was really excited to have ceviche and the meats in authentic sauce.

We decided to start off with a bottle of wine and a few small plates and then order as we went along.

The service was impeccable very attentive and friendly.

We had3/4 small plates to start with a bottle of wine. Wine was lovely however the food was just so basic, no flavour and very underwhelming.

I’m glad we did stage our order as the bill came to £70 for a bottle of wine (£30) and a few small plates.

Can’t fault the venue or the staff but the food is not worth the money

Music played too loud for valentine's Day , difficult to hear what partner was staying , food of good quality but very expensive for what you got £4.50 for 7 chips , £9 for 3 small crab bites , we have eaten in many restaurants over the years including Michelin star and don't mind paying good price for great food , however felt it wasn't worth the price at Peru Peru

What a great place, we will definitely be going back. Lovely decor, well spaced tables and lots of really good unusual food. Danny, the GM was excellent and overall service was pretty good. One of the waitresses (possibly head waitress as she was dressed differently) could have done with better knowledge of the food and wine.
Manchester has long needed a Peruvian restaurant and the wait has been worth it!

My wife and I recently visited Peru Perdu for a Friday afternoon treat. Wow! What a fabulous experience. The service was first class with explanations about the food and the added bonus was the management offering additional starters for us to try.
Both the tuna and salt cod starters were excellent and the chicken and Uraguayan wet aged steak out of this world.
Peruvian cocktails, starters, two glasses of wine, coffee, main courses and a dessert all under £120.00. Brilliant value.

I was really pleased to find a Peruvian restaurant in Manchester after having kept an eye out for years, and it didn’t disappoint.

We went for the small ceviche plates, although there are large plates and steak for those who want them.

The food was fantastic with a great spicy heat. The wine was also fantastic.

My only moan is about the beer. I had a pint in the before before our meal, and it wasn’t up to scratch, didn’t taste quite right. But otherwise, everything was great, I would like to go again, and have already recommended it to friends.

I’m Peruvian, so the menu was more Peruvian inspired, fusion. If you go with that in mind, it is very enjoyable. Very nice food and drinks! Totally recommend it.

Just please check the typos in the menu: huevos and Uruguayan were misspelled. We tried to tell this, but we got the feeling the staff didn’t listen. So hope writing it here helps! 😊

Great place, great food, great service. Will definitely come back!
The only thing I’m not sure about is making all pisco sours vegan rather than offering a vegan option - it doesn’t quite taste the same and I would have loved the original Peruvian version.
The only other problem is the fact that it’s part of a pop-up restaurant concept so I’m sad it’s only going to be there for a few months! We need a permanent version in Manchester :-)

Had a lovely evening at Peru Perdu for my partner’s birthday. The staff were very welcoming and attentive. The food was very very nice - I’d highly recommend the duck tostada to start and the dulce de lèche cheesecake. The steaks were well cooked and buttery. Will definitely go back soon.

Peru Perdu is paradise lost. The menu is stunning, exotic and expertly executed. The owner/concept designer Angus is the most convivial host who made a special effort to make our little trio feel like old friends. The service is exceptional with friendly and diligent staff who are attentive without being overly obsequious. This is now my favourite Manchester restaurant, well done team!

The Pisco Sours were delicious, our server recommended the watermelon and coffee which was really tasty.

The salt cod empanada was a bit disappointing, so hopefully the recipe can be revised to better balance the corn and fish. The ceviche was tasty and my friends enjoyed their pork belly mains.

I'd definitely go back again and recommend it to others.

Thank you for your feedback Annie. Much appreciated! I'm so pleased to hear you enjoyed the Pisco Sours. There has been a lot of love put in to our cocktail menu :) I have passed the feedback regarding the salt cod on to our Head Chef who will look in to it for you. Hopefully we'll see you soon Many thanks, Jen

I'm Peruvian and the food was less than impressive. The ceviche dishes weren't traditional; there was no taste of lime, spiciness, or touch of saltiness, rather, they were more like dishes you'd find at a sushi restaurant (if it were a Peruvian-Japanese fusion restaurant, then I'd have enjoyed it). The crab ceviche tasted more like tuna salad and the tuna ceviche was just raw tuna. The humita was deconstructed and made of yellow sweet corn; real humitas are made of white maize, whereas what I was served was more like mush. The empanadas weren't quite traditional either; no olives, eggs, or spiciness. I did enjoy the frozen pisco sours. They were delicious and citrusy, just as they should be. You also did not have other staples of the Peruvian cuisine on the menu: papa a la Huancaina, lomo saltado, arroz con pollo, causa, and other dishes people would likely really enjoy.

Overall, I was disappointed, because it simply isn't real Peruvian food.

All very nice except that service was very slow. We did go during the soft opening so that was understandable.
