Take whole wheat crepe. Went there twice, really nice for lunch outdoors in patio. 1crepe is enough for lunch. Great and creative selection. Prices are ok for what you get. Highly recommended

When on vacation, we never eat twice at the same place. Except here. In the summer of 2011, between the Colka canyon and a climb up Misti, we ate three times at this wonderful restaurant. The first time, we played it safe: Nutella. The second time around, we sampled the salty side of the menu and had to come back... More

I LOVE that there is a gluten free option here! And a few lactose free options too :) :) (though they use milk in the crepe batter, fyi).

We had an excellent lunch of crepes sitting outside at one of the courtyard tables. We were there during the world cup, and one of the games was being screened inside. The food was freshly cooked, elegantly presented and very tasty. The crepes were well made and well balanced. We had the lunchtime set menu, and that was very good... More

The concept is to have a wide variety of meals on a crepe. I personnaly tasted the Acalpa meat on a crepe bed and this was delicious. Furthermore on the table you can play games with your children which is good when you are in family.

Delicious crepes with fresh ingredients. The menu is huge and there is certainly something to please all taste buds. The venue is gorgeous with a beautiful rooftop belvedere. The mezzanine has comfortable couches and games to keep children entertained while waiting or enjoying for food.

That moment when you realize that Tripadvisor needs to let you give an all out ten star rating once or twice a year. Helen's face may have launched a thousand ships at Troy but if it was a tiff over eating at Crepisimo then they'd have sent a few billion over instead. After three weeks of traveling around South America,... More

Inside the Alliance Francaise - a pretty stone colonial building. Central location opposite the Santa Catalina. Double height main room and a nice courtyard with 3 tables. The menu is based around crepes. They make them with different flours including local grains. Good but just miss the best ever category - not at the level of Meli Melo of Greenwich... More

Great food, great drinks, super duper happy hour AND open late!! We went here TWICE during our stay in Arequipa! Crepes are good at any time of the day, and they have an amazing selection of sweet and savoury! Make this a MUST stop on your trip!
