We took a gamble based on previous reviews but were really happy here. I'm quite a fussy eater too! Not the most atmospheric place maybe but good service (we were in a rush and they were extra quick when we told them this) and lovely food. I really enjoyed the tofu salad and my boyfriend who isn't veggie loved the... More

The lakshmivan menue is nice but it takes a bloody while till you get your food. Staff ran out and bought ingredients while we were starving... The price is good for european budgets but definitely not cheap for peru! My husband went hungry for another dessert...

Cannot believe this place has such bad reviews, which is why I'm leaving my first ever review. We found this place on our first night in Arequipa and the food was so good that we went back the next night. We both had the set menu the first night and curry dishes the second night. The food was full of... More

My girlfriend and I found this wandering around town and wish we hadn't. We ordered garlic bread, pesto spaghetti and a roasted vegetable sandwich with french fries. 35 minutes later we were given 6 pieces of burnt toast (4 pieces were the crust), boiled vegetables dumped between two pieces of stale bread (no french fries) and a watery pile of...

I popped in here for what I thought would be a quick lunch because I was in the mood for vegetarian food. I ordered a soup and salad. After 30 minutes of waiting a mediocre soup came. After an hour, despite asking for it again, still no salad, so I paid for the soup and left.

We went there a couple of times due to the fact that they are one of the only places in town that offer vegan food, but this place is very overrated. The 20 soles menu was very disappointing, and it was the first time in my life that I had a burger without a bun and vegetables in it. The... More

For clarity we were there the day after the town's birthday fiesta so lots of people were off work and many places were closed. This was open. We had the set menu. On paper it looked good, but I practise... no. Service was slow and the food left a lot to be desired in terms of both flavour and quality.... More

We went there upon recommendation and felt somewhat disappointed. admittedly, there was only one member of staff and 4 full tables, but the service was slow. the set menu (20 soles) wasn't tasty at all: no flavours and all very samey. the soup was water with a few vegetables. 2 of the dishes had rice. I won't be rushing back.

It's a nice-looking place, but we were the only diners when we were there. The asparagus soup was good, but the mushroom pizza was not. The crust was underdone and tasted almost moldy, and the mushrooms were canned.

We ordered two *Lakshmivan Set Meals* (which was recommended to us by the waitress/chef). The smoothie & starter were both very nice but the soup was a let down and main course was terrible especially the "curry" which seemed like it came out of a sachet and had absolutely NO taste to it whatsoever and the fried "steak" like object...
