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.
Loved everything at Tono. The food, the atmosphere and loved the service the most. All the waiters were friendly and very attentive. But for two people it was super pricey. We paid $120 p/pax ($240 total) for 2 entrees, 2 mains, 2 desserts and 4 glasses of wine. Probably better to go with a big group of people, so you can taste everything and split the cost with more people.
The service at Tono is always spectacular, the staff are the perfect mix of relaxed and hyper knowledgeable that makes eating there an enjoyable experience. The Tono Ceviche and Pulpo al Olivo were beautiful, featuring fresh and delicious seafood. Will have to return for the Piscos!
The food was great. The pulpo al olivo, beef and coconut cake were outstanding. The nikkei ceviche was okay, I would have preferred to try the clasico although the nikkei was apparently the more popular flavour. Slightly pricey, we spent about $150 for 2 pax - 3 dishes, 1 dessert and 1 cocktail.
Great Pisco sours, very friendly service from the staff. We have all the different ceviche choices and they were all delicious. Sadly we were not hungry enough to try other menu items but they looked great and we will be back for more testing.
Very delicious Peruvian food! Was afraid some of dishes would be too limey, but all was good. Nice presentation. Attentive service staff. Had a bottle of Argentinian Malbec. Would have appreciated if there were more other South American wine choices on the list though.
Very hospitable staff, nice ambience. In terms of food, it is probably the closest you can find to the actual dishes in Peru. Ceviche was not bad, my personal favourite, which i felt had the greatest taste resemblance would be the causa lima!
Tono continues to be one of my favorite restaurants in Singapore. The seafood is always fresh, well seasoned and cooked well. The staff was also very attentive and had a very entertaining version of a birthday song. We will be returning again soon!
I had an excellent evening! staff was friendly and helpful with good knowledge of the food. ordered 6-8 items.. ALL of it was good. Portions are small.. but just nice to appreciate the flavors! look forward to going back again!
Food was delicious and fresh, service attentive. The wines by the glass were good value. We were unfamiliar with the portion sizes so we started with 3 dishes between the two of us and added on as our stomachs led.
Food was great, ambience was great, and service was good. I liked how the servers described what went into the dishes when they served them. They even sent me a text the next day to thank us for going.
