Ceviche Old St wins Best Venue award
Ceviche Old St has been named ‘Best Venue’ in the Retailers' Retailer Awards 2016, voted for by restaurateurs and retailers. The award is given an ‘outstanding UK venue’ in terms of design, offer, operating format, service and trading performance.
Peruvian restaurateur, chef and award-winning cookbook author Martin Morales opened Ceviche Old St in March 2015 at the historic Alexandra Trust Dining Rooms. Martin kickstarted the Peruvian restaurant scene in London when he opened Ceviche Soho (Feb 2012), which was followed by our sister restaurant Andina in Shoreditch (Dec 2013).
Since opening in Spring 2015, Ceviche Old St has received fantastic reviews for food, drink, service and atmosphere alike. It was a finalist in the Best Designed Independent Casual Restaurant - Casual Dining Restaurant Awards 2016; voted in the Top Ten New Restaurants of the Year by City AM; awarded five stars by Time Out London; and described as ‘one of London’s top new restaurant’ in Metro. It has featured on a number of ‘best of’ lists, including top Sunday Roast by Time Out London.
The RROTY Best Venue award was presented by Sir Ranulph Fiennes at a ceremony held at London’s Guildhall. Now in their 17th year, the Retailers’ Retailer Awards are unique in that they are the only ones voted for by senior executives from the industry itself and are therefore a true reflection of what the market thinks, identifying the best companies, concepts and individuals.
Martin Morales said: “We’re thrilled to have won this award, recognising a brilliant team effort – from our chefs, our bar staff, our front of house team, designers and suppliers. We’re dedicated to creating the best possible experience for everyone who comes to our restaurants, and there’s a tremendous amount of hard work, attention to detail, care and passion that goes into every element of what we do. For that to be recognised by the industry in this way is truly an honour.”
