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!
We had a lovely meal with a group of friends. The food was delishious and the staff was friendly and helpful. I would definitely go back again. Peruvian food is tasty and also really healthy. Watch out for their local drink piscu, quite potent! 😁
The food, the atmosphere and the service were very good. The price was very reasonable. It was certainly very good value. I would most definitely go back.
Great Food! Great Staff! Lovely Restaurant and service lots of gluten free options and it is all DELISH! My third visit and will continue to visit.
