El Inca Plebeyo is family-run restaurant offering healthy, tasty, affordable, authentic and high quality dishes. The Head Chef, Jorge Pacheco, has 14 years experience working in Michelin-star restaurants across London across Peruvian, French, British and American cuisines.

El Inca Plebeyo is inspired by the richness of the Ecuadorian and Latin culture and history which centres around food, friends, family, laughter, love and happiness. We welcome you to a friendly and casual atmosphere which feels like you are stepping into Latin-America itself: the classic latin music on vinil disc collection is open to everyone- bring and play your own too if you like!

The menu has been created to offer you an unique twist of Latin and explosion of modern flavours which is accessible to all, based on a sharing concept.

We invite food lovers to an unforgettable experience, enticing you to try different dishes rather than to stick to known ones.

    Not quite the place I expected. The food is okay and average plus. Didn’t find it exceptional as suggested by the reviews. But it’s original and on the good side of average

    Perfect in every way. The food is absolutely impeccable, the service is intimate and friendly, this restaurant is one of my top picks in London and is definitely the best hidden gem in this city that I’ve been to.

    The good was delicious and the service was very friendly. That was our first time when we tasted Ecuadorian cuisine. We recommend testing their Ceviches. They are amazing!

    This our first time dining at an Ecuadorian restaurant. The owner was very helpful with his recommendations and also happy to chat with us. The meal was very good and we had a pleasant evening here.

    El Inca Plebeyo is probably by far our favourite restaurant in London. Chef Pacheco is always happy to give recommendations, his food is unbelievably good and beautifully presented!Service is really friendly and relaxed. This time we sat outside on the terrace, we had an amazing time and enjoyed some delicious caipirinha. Can't wait to be back! Gracias, Jorge!! Francesco & Adriana
