The second London venture from the team behind Michelin-starred Peruvian restaurant, Lima, is more informal than it's older sibling.
This Covent Garden eatery features a piqueos bar for small bites that are perfect for sharing, and a main restaurant for more substantial fare. There is also a pisco bar serving Peruvian inspired cocktails.

I was here this past Sunday for the Andean brunch and was not very impressed.
The quinoa was so bland (completely the opposite of what another yelper experienced) that I didnt eat more than two bites. Those who know me, know that I almost always finish my plate even if it's not the greatest. I don't like wasting food.
Yogurt was average. Not terrible, but nothing special either.
I love brunch - it's an excuse to pig out because you're eating breakfast and lunch at the same time. But be warned - it's hard to finish everything at the Lima weekend brunch and I'm talking about the small Andean menu, not the long lunch menu.
For £18 you get a selection of fruits, cereal, quinoa, yogurt and honey and that's just to start! Then there's a brioche bacon bun, potato fritters...more
The space is great (Also because I loved the previous occupants of the space, 'The Forge') - very cosy, very real, yet sophisticated with a clean look.
The menu spans the culinary diversity of Peru, and about 50-60% of flavours or flavour combinations that you will taste will wow you in the superlative.
The starters in the £30 long lunch Saturday option were something of a showstopper....more
We got some vouchers from Timeout to have cocktails. It was only £32 for 8 cocktails. Who could argue with that kind of price?
This place has a short and sweet cocktail menu concentrating on Pisco (you know, since it's Peruvian). I suppose if you don't like Pisco, you shouldn't come here coz their bar is not exactly some well-stocked be at one.
We really enjoyed the chilli cocktail...more
