If the menu here is exclusively ceviche, that hugely fashionable Peruvian speciality, it still manages holds your interest. The range of flavours and ingredients changes daily, depending on what come out of that morning’s catch, fresh from the sea. When we visited at the end of August, we were delighted by a scallop ceviche with passion fruit, jazzed up chilli, coriander and lime, and another of whiting and heirloom peaches with red onions and fresh mint. They go perfectly with a refreshing bottle of white wine (from €22) and a leisurely lunch. In autumn, the menu might feature things like sea bream ceviche with sweet potato, leche de pantera Peruvian fish stock, celery and whipped corn, or smoked haddock, pomegranate, chives and vitelotte purple potatoes. Side dishes to balance out all these strong flavours might be mashed potato or sweet potato with cheddar fondue, quinoa salad, rice or split peas (around €5 each). With fresh products, bang-on flavour combinations and carefully executed recipes, a warm welcome, efficient service and pretty décor, everything here is designed to please. Just watch the prices, unless you’re taking advantage of the set lunch menu at €16.

Went with friends to their recently opened second location on Rue Martel (75010) and really enjoyed it! The ceviche is EXCELLENT but, as you would expect, portions are small and the guys at the table were still a little hungry and kept asking for more bread! Each plate was fresh, colorful and bursting with flavor! The traditional Peruvian sea bream ceviche was my favorite, but all were good! Service was very friendly and prompt. Pretty expensive if you're hungry, so best to go with some light eaters!
