An unimposing restaurant front on Essex Road, Islington belies the quality of the food offered by Tierra Peru. Serving traditional and contemporary Peruvian cuisine since 2010, Tierra Peru dreams of sharing the sights, scents, sounds and tastes of Peruvian food culture with north-Londoners in the know and curious diners from further afield. Tierra Peru has been awarded three consecutive certificates of excellence from an international tourist association, as testament to the quality of their food and service.
Islington is hardly short of places to grab a bite to eat, so it is a sign of its quality that this little Peruvian kitchen and bar, Tierra Peru, has been serving happy, hungry Londoners fragrant Peruvian dishes for the better part of half a decade. With a menu that caters for meat eaters and vegetarians equally, diners will be able to discover new delights like leche de leon a delicious combination of king prawns and coriander served mild or spicy, or seco de cordero a lamb stew steeped in coriander, beans, stout, rice and cassava.
For a restaurant in pricey Essex Road, Islington, Tierra Peru is very reasonably priced, with all main courses coming in at £15 or less, and a generous, by-the-glass wine menu, as well as smaller plates for smaller appetites. All dishes are beautifully presented in Tierra Peru’s relaxed and bustling dining room. In addition to their accolades from international tourist associations, Tierra Peru boasts a highly-regarded feature in Time Out London’s 2013 Eating and Drinking Guide.
My family and I... Enjoy the Buffet in the restaurant everything fresh & yummy yummy After lunch we need to walk to the station becauses we eat to much...
Good selection of authentic Peruvian dishes with some more westernised options. It is quite pricey, but their Pisco sour will make you forget about the bill! :)
Fantastic restaurant! My family and I came here to celebrate my birthday last year and this year. My maternal side is Peruvian and Tierra Perú is very authentic and delicious. They were very kind and accommodating too, playing ‘Happy Birthday music’ and helping us set up the cake. Very kind Peruvian hospitality. Definitely will visit again.
