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 had a wonderful meal at zig zag. We went for dinner and had made a reservation. We were seated upstairs in the window overlooking the beautiful plaza. The food was fresh. We are vegetarians and the choices were excellent. The service was superb.

We had an excellent experience and got in on a Saturday night without a reservation. We loved our table in the second floor window overlooking San Francisco plaza. The food was served with style and it was innovative and tasty. Meat served on the volcanic stone certainly kept things exciting!

We went to Zig Zag after a long day of exploring Arequipa, although we booked last minute the restaurant found a space for us later in the evening, yet organised a table in their bar for a pre-dinner drink while we waited (make sure you book for dinner). The restaurant has a good variety of food, although if you enjoy... More

I came here for dinner one night and there were no open tables so I had to make a reservation for the next night... and it was so worth it. All of the food was fantastic- I shared the fondue with my boyfriend, and all the dishes I saw at the other tables looked equally as good. The service was... More

We had a delicious meal in zig zag during our stay in arequipa, the menu has a wide range of dishes (mostly meat dishes but was also a gnocci and fettucinne and salad for veggie options) to suit all at good prices. All our dishes were presented beautifully. To be honest we were slightly naive and wernt expecting to find... More

Zigzag is a must for anybody visiting Arequipa. We were a family of 6 and we were sat in a private seating area which was really nice, and the service was great. We all had starters and meat for mains which were all cooked to perfection, we stayed a lot longer after the restaurant had stopped serving to finish off... More

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
