A Fitzrovia branch of the ceviche specialist.

Señor Ceviche has struck gold with the location of this, its second branch. Set in a lovely townhouse on Fitzrovia’s Charlotte Street, there’s a little terrace out front, but the best seats are actually inside, up the stairs. Here, plants drape exotically down the walls and diners sit at green marble tables looking out over the rest of the restaurant. Drink more than two pisco sours and you could almost kid yourself you’re in Peru.

Ceviche – raw fish cured in citrus juice – is the speciality (obvs), and the best here is the signature ‘Señor Ceviche’. Sea bass and octopus marinated in creamy, spicy tiger’s milk; the fish itself was delicate, infused with notes of tangy citrus, chilli and sweet red onion that unfurled and rolled deliciously across the tongue with every bite. Also excellent was lamb rump served in hunks so sticky and plump they looked like slabs of chocolate.

Now, for the low points. Barbecued artichoke came too hard and quinoa salad was too dry, but most disappointing of all was a waiter who kept trying to strong-arm us into buying more drinks. The setting and the ceviche made up for it, though. I’ve gone back twice.

I took my boyfriend to Senor Ceviche for his birthday, treating him to the bottomless brunch offer which runs on weekends. This bottomless brunch is bottomless in terms of both food and drink - the drink offering is an interchangeable choice of peach bellinis and red/white wine and is available for 1 hour and 45 minutes. The bottomless food includes a selection of beautifully fresh ceviches, beautiful squares of pork belly and bowls of crispy baby calamari. There are also BBQ dishes- you only get one of these each, but that doesn't matter. We had already had 16 dishes and there was a dessert to come later, too! This bottomless brunch is £39 a head (though when we dined I was able to use my Nudge membership which got us 50% off!) We probably had 6 bellinis in that time - fruity, sweet and delicious. This was my first Bottomless Brunch, officially and I just can't imagine value gets much better than this. All you can eat food and drink even when paying full price is a superb offering, but when the food is this delicious it makes it even better! I'd absolutely recommend this place for your weekends.


I've always been a big fan of Señor Ceviche Carnaby Street. When I found out they'd opened a new Charlotte Street branch I had to go and check it out. With loads of new menu additions and a pleasantly different feel inside, what impressed me the most about the Charlotte Street branch is the new bottomless brunch they've added to the menu. The whole experience was incredible from start to finish. The Peruvian spin on this traditional meal is genius; packed with flavour across the board, and despite the size of our big group all the meals were cooked to perfection!  My personal recommendation would be the corn bread French toast and sweet potato waffles. 


To top off the experience, the service was excellent with friendly and attentive staff topping up our Pisco Punch whenever needed. For a bottomless brunch, Señor Ceviche Charlotte Street is exactly what you want particularly if celebrating a special occasion; extremely good food, very reasonably priced, and a chilled laid back atmosphere. In my opinion, this is definitely the best brunch spot in London!
