Small place. Served quick but food was great . 🤙
The service was outstanding and the intention was there but the food was not so good unfortunatelly especially when it comes to value. Pisqu is trying to bring a high end vibe to Peruvian food but in reality it does not meet the expectations. We had the ceviche which was ok, the quinoa salad had loads of quinoa, a few chopped tomatoes and avocado with minimal seasoning and minimal dressing which was nothing special. The fish mains; hot ceviche had a very fishy smell to it. Grilled Seabass was the nicest dish. The corn cake was nice. The purple corn ice cream was too sweet. The staff was incredible so only if the food actually meets the intention then the price will be worth and we would go back.
Amazing Peruvian food and Pisco sours. The grilled octopus is amazing.
Excellent food, very friendly, good table and wonderful Sour drinks to start the evening
Among the best restaurants I have tried in London with fascinating dishes. Enjoyed the beef and quinoa salad. Atmosphere is welcoming. Got treated well. Convenient location. Cocktails were wonderful.
Pleasant place. Food wasn’t remarkable but was perfectly pleasant. We thought that 2 prawns on the main course was rather mean. My wife enjoyed the flan.
Nice and friendly staff, food was a bit below expectations, value for money fair but not great.
The pisco sours were real, the food generally good, but the whole was rather expensive for what it is.
This place and its food is amazing. No words needed. Healthy dining in a fabulous atmosphere. Service was charming. Well worth refined dining experience
but you feel the homely touch. You only know it is authentic if you have eaten in Peru and this place certainly is unlike other joints nearby. The dishes tried were extraordinary, especially the pisqu Pulpo octopus and corn cake. From start to finish Pisqu was full of flavours, great pisco cocktails too. Cannot wait to return.
Another lovely meal at Pisqu. Creative and tasty food. Thanks to Dermot and his team for a
The most amazing staff, very friendly and helpful servers, really good pico sours, but unfortunately the food does not do peruvian justice. We had the pulpo as a starter and it was good, our mains lomo saltado and pollo were just ok.
The service was absolutely terrible. I booked a table for lunch at 2pm to celebrate my friend's birthday. We were planning to have the three course set menu, which we told the server. Our orders for drinks weren't taken for 20mins after sitting down. Eventually they arrived, and then we were able to order the food about 2.30pm. The portions were small but the food was tasty. After finishing our main courses, we waited for the dessert menu, eventually asking for it. We ordered desserts. About 15mins after ordering the desserts, the waitress came back and said the kitchen was closed and they wouldn't be able to provide desserts. We asked for the bill... and waited, watching her clean the (now empty) restaurant. After a long wait, we asked for the bill again, and eventually went to another restaurant in the area for our dessert! A strange and not pleasing experience! I was embarrassed I had taken my friends there for a celebration.
Very nice meal, really enjoyed the food. Next time I should try different traditional food to explore!
One of the most disappointing meals I've ever had in London. 50 minutes until we were served even our drinks. Had to get up from table repeatedly to try to corner a server and beg for something to drink or eat because no-one would even come speak to us. Ceviche, cassava croquettes and corn cake were good--simple and fresh. The mains were all bland and amateurly prepared (soggy skin on fish, soggy crackling on chewy pork belly, rubbery chicken). This chicken dish was £17, so fully priced, and was a few pieces of boneless thigh. Everything is garnished with the exact same lukewarm sweet potato puree and kernels of sweetcorn. The pork belly 'confit' was tough and the fat was congealed layers--hardly melt in your mouth and not appetising at all. Very little flavour or seasoning. The basement where we were seated was noisy, humid and stuffy and had no decoration at all--you really felt trapped down there with nowhere to look. The very sweet server kept apologising for it 'being so busy'. It was full, but hardly busy as there was no turnover of tables because no-one was being served. I should have known right away when we were ignored for over 5 minutes by the four servers at the door when we walked in, and cut my losses...
Appalling. We booked a table for 4 several weeks ago. On arrival we were seated at a window table and served by an excellent young man. Within 10 minutes, the owner came to our table and told us we were being moved downstairs because there was a workshop on our floor. Downstairs was cold, soulless and no tables had been prepared. We left. If they are unable to cater for workshops and other diners at the same time they should not accept bookings for both on the same day. It was a disgrace.
I apologise that you were moved downstairs. You seemed to enjoy your conversation with your peers, so I offered you a private and relaxing room. Our staff set up very quickly however, and I really regret that you didn't like the room. There were two customers dining along with the workshop group upstairs, and our downstairs was available to dine in. We could accept reservations apart from the workshop group on that day.

This was the first time my 2 friends and I had eaten Peruvian food and it was excellent. Our charismatic waiter was so helpful and explained all the dishes to us. We decided to try everything from the set pre-theatre menu to share between us! From the ceviche (who knew how delicious raw fish in tigers milk is?) to the Pisco Sours (try the Picante for a zing) it was an all round fab experience. Will definitely go again.
We had a perfectly nice time, friendly service, nice food and great drinks. To start with the noise level was good but towards the end of our meal, 'music' was turned on which made conversation difficult. In a space as small as the upstairs restaurant this spoils things and is totally unnecessary.
Never having had Peruvian food before, it was an interesting and enjoyable experience. Service very welcoming and friendly.
Brilliant little place. Food was delicious and brilliant service. Pisco Sours were tasty too.
Yummy pisco sours. Food was delicious and fresh. I think on the whole I would rather do more starters as sharing dishes than have main course. Would definitely go again. Friendly staff
Great food, and great service.
Would recommend going here to everyone
Delicious food - I would recommend the hot ceviche despite being quite uncertain prior to ordering!
My dining companion and I enjoyed tasty food. We had a cocktail then beer. Slightly lacking in atmosphere.
Nice staff, great food. Lovely location.
The best Peruvian in London. Interesting dishes, amazing flavours, great pisco sours all perfectly presented
We had a wonderful, friendly and knowledgable waiter, didn’t catch the name but he was Venezuelan, and really made the whole experience more elevated along with the fantastic food and ambience. Well deserving of our extra tip.
Great evening! The food was really tasty and the service was warm and friendly. Would definetly go again
We spend a really nice moment for dining. Food was excellent and fresh. A warm welcome with many explanations as we are French. And overall the best pisco sour I ever drink !
The service was a little slow, and we had to wait ages to get menus, but once up and running was great, our waitress was truly lovely and so friendly. The food is quite overpriced, but delicious.
On arrival we were only given a la carte menu and had to ask for a set menu. Even though they advertised cocktails for £5, we were charged the full price. It took ages for the bill to arrive. The food was just average. Tables cramped together, bland and boring decor.
Food was tasty, but we were the only people in there and service was terrible. 30 mins wait between ordering and (cold) starters and then another 30 mins from starter being cleared to main!
Understand if it was heaving...
Great pisco sour menu! We very much enjoyed the food and look forward to coming back. Friendly staff and nice environment.
Excellent food. Good service but very poor ambiance. They try to fit 20 people in a place suited for 10.
The restaurant is small and tables were somewhat crammed in however the food quality makes up for the cramped conditions
The vegetarian food was good and well presented. Slightly overpriced for what it is. Eating downstairs feels like eating in a basement. No atmosphere. Not sure I would recommend.
Lovely food, great service. Quiet place just off Oxford Street, perfect to get away from everything and have some really good food
Second time there and i still love it. I recommend
Really nice authentic Peruvian food, presented beautifully, and extremely tasty. The Pre/Post Theatre Set menu is great value for £19 for two courses (or£22 for 3), the Sea Bass Ceviche starter was a highlight. Would definitely visit again!
A very enjoyable evening -- especially as the waiter performed miracles in finding a quiet, secluded table for my friend and myself in the week before Christmas. Thank you!
Really good tasty food. Friendly staff. Good service. I had a booked table and people came late and less than the booking. The manager/owner was really understanding offering really good service. I will definitely come back!
