The first of its kind in Asia, Tono Cevicheria is a trailblazer in more ways than one. This Singapore Peruvian restaurant specialises in ceviche, a dish consisting of raw fish or seafood preserved using citrus juice and an array of herbs or spices. Lima-trained Latin American chefs create everything from fabulous cocktails to main courses including, of course, ceviche. Fresh, flavoursome and totally refreshing, this ceviche is simply out of this world. Make your way to Duo Galleria on Fraser Street near Bugis MRT station for an experience you won’t forget. As always, advance booking is recommended to avoid disappointment.
’Tono’ – the Peruvian slang for party – sets the bar high for the riot of flavours and textures you can expect at Singapore’s first-ever authentic Peruvian cevicheria. At Tono Cevicheria on Fraser Street in Bugis, you’ll enjoy ceviche made with fish of the highest quality, served to you in a setting that makes it easy to while away the hours. Usually comprising a mix of fish – sea bass for example – marinated for hours with key lime juice, corn, and ingredients like sweet potato or garlic, ceviche has many variations depending on the region it’s from.
Founded by Peruvian Chef Daniel Chavez Of OLA Cocina Del Mar, Tono Cevicheria dishes out Peruvian delights with a large dose of fun, happiness, and big-heartedness that its natives are typically known for. Whether it’s your first time trying ceviche or if it’s already your favourite dish, we’re certain that you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the selection here. We recommend taking a tasting platter which includes three different ceviches for you to sample, or opt for one you know you’ll love, like the signature Tono ceviche made with market fish, crispy baby calamari, smoked aji amarillo and tiger’s milk. Other specialities include Tono’s lomo saltado (stir-fried beef with onions, coriander, tomatoes and crispy onions), sudado de pescado (Peruvian fisherman’s stew) and tres leches, a decadent dessert. TONO Cevicheria prides itself on fresh, carefully sourced ingredients with a focus on sustainability, especially in its seafood – a true hallmark of Peruvian culinary heritage and progress. Reserve your table ahead of time at this Bugis restaurant for a dining experience unlike any other in Singapore.
It was the Latino festival when I was there and the food being served was Brazilian and Indonesian. However i have to say it was delicious. The cocktail mixed was also interesting. Staff were friendly and the ambience was lively.
we had dinner there , the food is good and tasty , portion size is not bad .also great atmosphere! will come again for sure !
Scallop ceviche with sweet potato mash was tasty but tiny. Pork belly with gooseberry sauce was very good, interesting flavour combination and succulent, but could be cut into slightly smaller pieces. Seafood platter was also excellent, done just right. Service staff were knowledgeable and helpful, and the manager also stopped by to help with an issue we had. We had to top it off with a dessert, soursop gelato which was also done well with lots of interesting flavour combinations like vanilla and passion fruit. Expensive but top notch. Thank you again to the manager and his team, and compliments to the chef.
food was great and service was amazing! I would definitely bring a bigger group next time as there's just so much more dishes to try!
My husband and myself visited Tono Cevicheria while staying in Singapore for a week in September. From the moment we arrived it was just magic. The food, service and ambience all comes together as an easy going and the same time a really high quality, an excellent experience. Tono cevicheria delivers the most delicious ceviches ( the best i`ve ever had ) logo saltado ( with a sauce to die for ) and desserts ( i still look at the picture and remember ..). It`s a beautiful Peruvian cuisine experience with a modern touch. Just so refreshing!!! We were more than impressed. I LOOOOOVEEE Tono Cevicheria and wish i lived much much closer. Highly recommended.
We had a lovely evening here. The ambience is lively and still cosy when sitting inside and the food was simply delicious. We (2 ladies) were suggested to order 2 starters and 1 main to share. However, next time, I think 2 starters are enough for us as the portion is quite generous and also filling. We had the Tono Ceviche which was a delight. The Causa Lima with the soft shell crab was a bit of a let down after the wonderful ceviche. I think next time we will order 2 ceviches instead. We had the Plancha de Mariscos for main. I was getting quite full after the 2 starters so didn’t enjoy the main as much. It was tasty but nothing to shout out about. We wrapped up our meal with the butter Cookies and they were light and refreshing. The service was attentive and helpful. We would definitely return for the ceviche!
the food is fantastic and service rendered was timely. some points to note: 1. the first waiter asked if we would like still/sparkling. we gave our reply but was asked shortly by the 2nd guy whom we told that the ordered was given. the 2nd guy didn’t explain that the first guy couldn’t remember 2 still & 2 sparkling. why so? if he has got other orders and cannot remember, just pace it out a little. 2. we finished our food. one of the guy came to us with a bill and flower and we told him it wasn’t ours, because we haven’t asked it at all. it’s ok, despite the fact the it did make us feel a lil unwelcomed. 3. when we eventually asked for the bill, the guy came promptly. i’m not sure if we were supposed to ask if a flower came for all mothers, or that my mom didn’t look old enough or because he took my initial redirection of bill & flower as a sign of no flower required. we weren’t given any. maybe you can help clarify this point. once again, great food & prompt service. just unsure of the quality of service. Maybe we were deemed too cheapskate that resulted in the above points as we didn’t ordered a lot.
This is my favorite new restaurant and I'll definitely return soon. The service was fast, efficient and thoughtful - my water and bread was always full. The ceviche was light, refreshing and flavorful with a spicy kick. The jalea was among the best I've had and has a light coating rounded with a pleasantly sour kick. I'll return and try other dishes soon.
We had a very nice relaxed meal. The service was really nice, the servers could talk you through the menu and answer questions. Food was very nice. We stayed a long time over lunch and they were not ushering us out in a hurry. We had a gluten free guest and she was well taken care of, the restaurant was able to offer suggestions and quite a lot of options. I would recommend this restaurant.
Had a really great dining experience at Tono's. It was my first time eating Peruvian food and the staff took his time to explain the different dishes as well as what he would recommend for first-timers. They also assisted me in surprising my girlfriend, serving up a pretty light yet sweet Aqua Panna. In summary, food - great, staff - awesome.
Excellent food and service. Fresh flavoursome and interesting menu options. The waiter was brilliant with recommendations “nailed it” even went above and beyond to organise a taxi for us which was such a great help as it’s difficult to get a taxi in SIN especially on Saturday nights. All in all a fantastic dining experience. Highly recommended and will be back!
This is the sister restaurant of Ola Cocina Del Mar. It is a really good Peruvian restaurant with a focus on ceviche but many other Peruvian dishes and a really interesting menu that will have you wondering about the type and style of food. The vibe is really lively and fun and the service is friendly and helpful. Strongly recommended for a different dining experience and great good.
The main course (slow roasted pork) was forgettable but the true highlight of Tono for me were the desserts. We tried all four on the menu - all four were really, really good but the tres leche cake and the butter cookies were out of this world amazing. Compliments to the chef! The service was impeccable, thanks to the cheerful and earnest staff. The starters were good, the mains were only so-so but will definitely return for the dessert offerings!
Lovely ambience. Service crew possess good product knowledge and are friendly and glad to recommend or explain dishes. Food was excellent. Presentation was excellent. Word of advice: Opt for a table far from the entrances so you don’t get bothered by flying insects due to the abundant greenery surrounding. Other than that, we had an overall lovely dining experience as first-timers. Will definitely re-visit.
We celebrated our friend's birthday at Tono. The Peruvian manager was proactive in recommending dishes & ambience was great! What really sealed the deal was their birthday surprise for my friend! They came with party hats, a complimentary dessert with candle, n burst into birthday song in Spanish! We were all absolutely surprised!
Food was great with each dish having a distinctive character and balance on ingredients. The cocktails were perfect. The service staff was knowledgeable and patiently explained the recipe that went into every dish we ordered. The lady chef was gracious and came out to meet us enquiring about our experience. Overall, well thought out menu and beverages/cocktails. Wishing the restaurant great success.
Fantastic service and really impressive food. We went for my husband's birthday and the team went all out singing happy bday in spanish. Fun! Lovely interior and good amount of customers for a Monday night. No other units around occupied so not much atmosphere outside the restaurant. Would definitely go back.
I saw this new restaurant in Singapore through Instagram. And indeed, the Peruvian cuisine was not only new and delicious to the taste but also beautifully presented! The decor, atmosphere, jiggly Peruvian music and service makes you forget the office stresses and be carried away to an exotic place. Ceviches and starters a must! Give desserts a miss. Certainly be back!
I know I'll have fresh, flavorful and wonderful Peruvian food when I visit Tono. It's a favorite date night spot for its consistent dishes and good service. The ceviche is fresh and tasty and we just tried alfajores (cookies with dulce de leche) which was great too. We'll definitely return!
Food was really good and overall ambience was great, the hosts and servers/chefs were attentive. The air conditioning wasn't working well so it was a bit hot during the meal and after which made us leave slightly earlier. They also kept trying to clear our plates before we were done. Will come back again for sure.
