Description: The Alpandina dishes offered by the Zig Zag Restaurant are the result of a creative culinary fusion deeply rooted in the mountains, where the sun endows foodstuffs with energy and balanced components. The dishes most representative of Alpandino gastronomy arise from a marvellous synthesis of unique time-hallowed ingredients from all over Peru, combined with ancient and modern culinary techniques from the Alps and the Andes. One of the results is our great speciality: Volcanic-Stone-Cooked Meats and Fish.

We ate the salmon and trout and salmon tartar and alpaca beef- yummy! Deserts are also really good. Try the blueberry tart. The service and quality of the food was great.

We had a great meal. There was a mixture of traditional, local and international food. Several of us had the trilogy of meats, which was a selection of three meats, including alpaca, served with side dishes of your choice and various sauces. This was absolutely delicious and cooked extremely well. There were also many other options including fish, pasta etc.... More

We had a fabulous meal here. Service was first class. We enjoyed the fettuccine and burger dishes and the mousse for desert was divine. Would highly recommend.

We loved the food. The servers seemed not to be to the level of the food and pricing. They were not able to clearly describe the food, they couldn't really recommend a wine, but despite this, the food was simply great. It was probably our best meal in Peru.

Our family went here for a nice dinner and we got it! The food was excellent, I had the trout dinner which was accompanied by a mascarpone sauce and rice mixture. The service was excellent. We were waited on very nicely and the language barrier was not an issue.

In comperison to other places in Peru Zig Zag delivers a not very good value for money. I've visted the place with my girlfriend. We orderd 2 Soups, a salmon and trout brosceta ( recomended for 2) and 300 grams of meat ( the famous trio) plus soft drinks. The tomato soup was nice not great. The aspargus soup very... More

My girlfriend invited me to this restaurant being that it was our last night in Arequipa and wanted to treat me to a nice restaurant. I liked that the restaurant felt cozy and the staff was friendly. Our server was also very friendly. The only thing... More
