    Amazing and authentic food - the lomo saltado is soooooo good, brought back so many fond memories of Peru. The fritter dessert in hot honey was also delicious. The people who work there are lovely and are clearly passionate about the food. Had such a lovely birthday dinner here.

    The ceviche was excellent, as we're the Pisco Sours. Great atmosphere, felt as though we were back in Peru. The gentleman who I think runs it, was polite and helpful. Great experience!

    It was not my first time here, but now I brought some English friends that had never had Peruvian food. They all enjoyed the experience very much! Particular dishes that they loved were the tamales, Chicharron and Lomo Saltado, also the huancaina sauce!

    What a great night of good all peruvian hospitality and food for our birthdays , and to top it all two peruvian musicians who came to dine did a impromptu gig for us all. We love peruvian food having spent some in Lima Peru so know the their food quality was nearly same which we have had when we were there, we recommend them a try to give insight on authentic peruvian food.

    This was my second visit to this restaurant. The service was quick and efficient. Tierra Peru made us feel most welcome. The food was excellent, from starters, to main dishes, to dessert. Tamales, aji de gallina, picante chalaco, were all great. They also serve excellent pisco sour. I had the most delicious lucuma ice cream in ages. We’ll come back!
