My friend and I visited the restaurant thinking it would be a great place to have some snacks and cocktail. Boy we were wrong. We ordered the piqueo tipico. Items were missing from the tray, the chicharrones were hot but the anticuchos cold. We sent it back so we could get it at the right temperatures, they literally stuck the... More

This little "mall" of four floors was created especially for tourists, just one block from the Plaza de Armas. Since our hotel (Sonesta Posadas del Inca -see my review!) was just around the corner, this was an easy stroll to pick up some souvenirs. What they sell here is good quality and prices are accordingly. There are some restaurants too,... More

We had to double check the location and ask for directions to find this restaurant, even though it is close to the main square. However, we enjoyed a lunch there. It doesn't have a view, although above street level, but in return provides a bit a of a relief from the hustle and bustle of the streets.

First time to Arequipa and this was our first real dinner there,,,besides Mc'Donalds that I was craving. The prices were very reasonable, especially considering the amount of food you received. Plus, there is a lot to see in the building, it's like a museum and shopping mall on multiple levels. Some cool statues and a great carving along the center... More

It's got good reviews but found it to be like a USA chain restuarant, so a little disappointed but food was ok.

A big, fancy expensive shopping mall. Might as well stay in the US as to go here. Very nice inside, but not really "Peruvian".

It´s located on Mercaderes, a street closed to traffic that ends at the Plaza de Armas. This street has a starbucks, burger king, kfc, and pizza hut! I was so surprised to see it! We went to Ekeko just for the public bathroom, which was always hard to find in Peru.
