Pisqu wades into London’s thriving South American restaurant scene promising a true taste of Peru from a prime Rathbone Place location in Fitzrovia. The name Pisqu references the Quechua word that signifies ‘bird’, ‘rising’, ‘vibrant’ and echoes the eponymous birthplace of Peru’s national drink – the Pisco sour. The riot of colourful cocktail action offered here centres on the house-signature ‘Pisqu’ concoction – an interpretation of the classic that pairs superbly with the restaurant’s signature dish, the Pisqu tiradito. This combination of traditional Peruvian ceviche with Japanese sashimi is the brainchild of head chef William Ortiz, and is prepared right before your eyes if you choose to sit in the buzzing ground-floor ceviche and pisco bar. For a quiet Andean-style meal, head downstairs – but whatever you do, be prepared and book well in advance!

Good food but nobody knew the dishes served well. My wife is allergic to chilli and she said it before ordering, but nevertheless they brought her dishes that she couldn't eat. I ordered a bottle of wine but they insisted on serving wine by the glass: in the end I paid 4 glasses more than a bottle. It would be enough to be more careful. Environment not overly welcoming.
Food was average much better Peruvian in London - would not go again expensive
Good food, overpriced but it worth a visit. Slow service
