The food was sublime! We went here on a Groupon deal that allowed us two starters, two mains and two wines! But we were taken aback by the Pisco sours so had to have those. Then we got carried away with the sides....but the killer was dessert. Lacuma cheesecake was divine, Alfaores were lush too, but hard to get wrong.... More

On Sunday March 12, I visited Tierra Peru restaurant, where I received an excellent service from the very attentive and friendly staff. So too, Peruvian food very delicious with a very nice presentation. 100% recommended for the public. I will visit again.

The service was OK, but the food was pretty awful, aside from some tasty slices of grilled meat. I had a stew which was quite bland and just didn't seem well cooked. However, the cebiche was the worst either I or my wife have had. It was large, tough lumps of sinewy fish in a poorly done marinade - honestly... More

Before choosing this restaurant I searched online for some reviews, then I decided to book and bring my girlfriend for a special night out. What to say, everything was perfect, the location, the service, all the waiters were extremely attentive to the minimum detail; and the food was absolutely delicious. We couldn't have a better night then this one! They... More

The quality and the flavors spectacular and at a very good price. A very pleasant atmosphere to go with friends. My favorite dish is conchitas a la parmesana, a lovely gratin of scallop with bechamel cream and prawns and parmesana cheese. Absolutely delicious!!!

Having tried other Peruvian fancy restaurants i was somehow a bit skeptical but first impressions were very good, the restaurant resembles any of the cute resturants in lima, the decor,... More

For the second time in a row, I came to partake of the weekend (Saturday 4 March) Peruvian buffet at Tierra Peru and with no warning they chose to not offer the buffet. The previous time they claimed to have a mechanical problem. This time there was no attempt made at claiming extenuating circumstances. They simply decided that it would... More

Dear Customer; Thanks for your feedback. We have decided to run the buffet on Saturdays only if we have confirmed bookings, and the decision for this was that most of customers who came to eat at the restaurant on Saturdays did not wish to have the buffet (because there is always the option to have it or not) sometimes we...
