As seen on BBC1 Master Chef and voted as one of London's Top 100 Restaurants; acclaimed chef Peter Sanchez-Iglesias merges the Spanish cuisine of his family with his love of Mexico for his debut London restaurant, Decimo. Expect lots of flavour; aquachile (Mexican ceviche), suckling pig shoulder, vegan paella and a new take on tacos with a dramatically different tortilla. Situated on the 10th floor of The Standard, London, Decimo features two separate bar areas, a main restaurant which showcases live fire cooking, and two semi-private dining spaces, as well as floor-to-ceiling windows and roof terraces providing dramatic views across the London skyline.

We are now looking to grow our Decimo team, and are seeking diverse and dynamic individuals who will capture the very essence of this culinary destination and join our team as a Host.

As a Host you will become part of an exceptional restaurant team that will provide an extensive food and drinks service across our 10th floor restaurant.
