Peruvian
Pachamama is a bar and restaurant in Marylebone that serves Peruvian-inspired dishes, made with the best of British produce.

Monday to Friday lunch is where we serve our selection of ceviches, along with the best Peruvian burger in London, chargrilled chicken and much more.

The weekend brunch at Pachamama has been widely-regarded as serving the best waffles in London with toppings like fried chicken or plantain and peanut butter.

Dinner at Pachamama is a celebratory affair with a menu of small and large dishes to share. From snacks to ceviches, land, sea and soil, the menu has something for everyone with a focus on bold flavours, citrus and smoke.

The bar at Pachamama serves expertly-made cocktails using only Pisco and is a great place for an after dinner drink or to sit and enjoy the evening over a bottle of wine.

Excellent ceviche that tastes just like it does in South America; good pisco cocktails and the chicken in jerk-style sauce was great.
Nice easygoing atmosphere. Would recommend!

Great food but service was really disappointing. When asking a waitress if I could order drinks (because no one had been over for 15 mins) she replied I’m not your waitress and walked off. Had to ask members of staff three times for water, twice for menus and twice for the bill!

Absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish! Went with 5 of us and the food was brilliant all throughout. Our waiter (think his name was Kian) was exceptional and the whole place had such a friendly and relaxed atmosphere but everyone from the barman to the lady that sat us down was on it!

Love this place and would highly recommend it!

Hip and interesting restaurant, with good service, but the food wasn't good. We had the savoury waffles and they were fairly plain, with no sauces or dressings (even Maple Syrup would have worked). Really was disappointing that they didn't get the texture right.

The food is very good! However the music is far too loud! Be prepared to feel that you are eating in a bar rather than in a restaurant.
The waiters are very nice, but always running back and forth. The service is quick, but it is almost too quick. It is almost as the frenetic ambience has been created this way to make waiters work faster and costumers to eat even faster... The food is good, but a little bit pricy.
Overall I think I would be happier to pay the same amount if the restaurant had a quieter ambience and less stressed out waiters. I

The food was super nice, but all the food came out to fast. We felt rushed while eating and it could been paced better. Really fun vibe, nice interior, good atmosphere, but we could barely hear each other because the music was so loud. But all in all we recommend the place:-)

The food was good, but It was kind of hard to sit and enjoy It because It all came out super fast. We thought It would have been paced better. Really fun vibe, but felt rushed and could barely hear anyone at my table.

The majority of starters have something sweet added to them, which makes it very difficult to find a savoury starter. Unfortunately, it seems to be the current fashion to make up for a lack of culinary skill by adding something sweet to a savoury dish, as everyone loves sugar! Thankfully the main dish I had was savoury and full of lovely flavours. No sugar required!

Service was appalling. Our drinks and food got taken to the wrong table on a number of occasions. We ordered a chicken dish and got given a chicken different dish. When we queried this on the bill we were told we had to pay for the more expensive dish (that we hadn’t ordered) because we ate the one we were brought. Waiter was rude and snappy when we said due to all this we wouldn’t pay the DISCRETIONARY service charge.

Mushroom ceviche and the aubergine dish were excellent! Seating a bit cramped but otherwise perfect for a girls evening out. Good service

I thought the food and service was wonderful. Only slight drawback was being a three and being put on a two person table. This wouldn't normal irritate me having been a waitress for many years, but the table next to us (a four man table) was empty throughout our visit to the restaurant. Only downside though. The restaurant is beautiful and the atmosphere is like being in a writer/artists flat with their in house chef cooking for is. Lovely brunch venue - although don't go if you don't like waffles.

Popped in for family lunch based on reading good reviews.
Our waiter Roman was lovely, great smile and very welcoming, good was delicious and well flavoured /season. Minor point music was slightly loud but guess its aimed at a slightly younger crowd. Would still recommend!

Outstanding food.

We were disappointed that the one person who was vegetarian at the table had to wait quite long for the veggie dishes to be served. I simple order of rice took 20 minutes.

The leche frita was unlike anything I've ever had before, incredible, I want to go back just for that. Service here is always spot on and our latest visit didn't disappoint, so attentive, informed and friendly. Food was spectacular as always. Only thing is there's no cancha served with the ceviche, but that's being really picky. The carrots and quinoa were also absolutely divine. Loved everything, thank you.

Overall quality of food and drinks was good, but a few items on the tasting menu were ordinary. The main course chicken was pointless as a tasting item. Ceviche was very good, and the dessert tasted amazing.

Noise level was too high. I get the hip vibe, but the music sound level should be cut in half, so you don't have to shout to the waiter and your friends.

Overpriced.
We did not appreciate being bluntly told by waitress that we had to buy more small plates without first trying the ones we had already ordered.
I understand it's a business but the whole thing felt like a money grab. The food tasted nice but did not merit the price charged

Overall a nice experience friendly staff we ordered the set menu which was good but we found that some dishes came very quickly together and there there was big gaps between others
Pisco sours the signature drink was good but very small after having experienced them in Peru there was quite a big difference!!

Love Pachamama - food is yummy, and staff are super friendly. My friend was with her dog Wookie, which wasn't a problem and we were given a quiet table in the corner (as requested). Staff even brought a bowl of water for Wookie which was fab! :)

Wish the weekend brunch/lunch menu would have some of my dinner menu favourites!
