There's a lot I should have liked about Pisqu.
Having been to Peru before where I had the pleasure of eating its interesting, diverse range of tasty dishes for two weeks, I looked at the menu with excitment.
On the menu there is Peru's trademark beer, Cusquena, and rare dishes comprising a whole selection of ingredients carefully thought through.
It opened in October, and the downstairs section is still being built and its upstairs interior is small and dominated by white colours.
But after arriving at the Rathbone Place restaurant at 7.30pm, I was dumbfounded to not receive my drink until just over an hour later.
And during this time my friend and I were not asked for our food orders until around 8.15pm.
I wish I could say it ended there.
Before my starter of Ceviche Pisqu (£10) arrived, I was given my side of Yucas chips (£5), which I sent back so it would be warm with my main meal.
Though I felt it was priced over the odds, the Ceviche was a really good dish, comprising sea bass, lime, coriander, tigers milk and sweet potato, a surprising addition that works perfectly with the sea bass.
Unfortunately, my main of Lomo a la parrilla (£20) arrived before my friend, Jim, had even received his starter sparking an awkward spell of exchanges.
The Lomo was a lovely tender beef fillet with pachamanca sauce and corn grain cake which, despite is pleasantries, I thought was too small to justify a price tag on the plus side of £20.
After finishing both my starter and main, my friend Jim was finally given his starter, but not the requested Inti Raymi Tiradito (£12).
He was instead given the Ceviche Pisqu but after so long had past, he surrendered the will to point out the mistake and tucked into his starter.
Following this was the best meal of the night, the Chicharron (£16), coming with an juicy confit pork belly, sweet potato and rocoto sauce.
Particularly disappointing was how I wasn't asked if I'd like another drink until around two hours after my first beer, which the waitress then forgot, and I had to ask for it again.
While opening new restaurants take hard work, they also take sufficient staff numbers and there appears to have been little thought given to ensuring diners are served in good time.
Considering the huge price it must be paying for a location in Fitzrovia why, I ask, could it not shell out of ensuring enough waiting staff?
When I got my drink I had a glass of Clef d'Argent Sauvignon Blanc (£7.50) which was a crisp choice, although it was disappointing there was only one Peruvian wine on the menu, Picasso (£46), which could only be ordered by the bottle.
For dessert, Jim and I opted for the Pisqu chocolate moose coming with Matcha ice cream and Amazonian chocolate with passion fruit - which all tasted much blander than the ingredients suggested.
Given Peru's popularity with tourists, especially in the last five years, there's a lot of potential at Pisqu to build a niche restaurant offering something a bit different.
But I'm amazed that, despite being over a month old, its owners hadn't appeared to give more thought to ensuring a better quality service.
Steep prices and long waiting times mean getwestlondon gives Pisqu two stars out of five.
