Everything about this breakfast was amazing. The restaurant itself was beautifully set up with a cozy patio. Right across the courtyard is an art gallery that you can go peek in while you wait for your food. They also have a roof that you can go up to and get a panorama view of the city. The food presentation was... More

We are a couple days into our Peru trip and this is still my favorite restaurant. I wish we had one back home, but then again, I Love crepes! My husband and I each ordered two crepes: one for our meal and one for dessert. For the meal, I had the steak and pesto crepe. They don't hold back on... More

Is it a bar, a cafe or a French-style creperie? It's actually all three! A buzzing atmosphere in a European style cafe-bar serving English Abbott Ale from the barrel - the only place in Arequipa! Tuck in to tasty Andean food including salads and sandwiches plus of course French style sweet and savoury crepes, equal to any on offer in... More

We walked down to this restaurant from our hotel, the Libertador. Took about 15 mins. Wanted a light meal and this fits the bill (although you can order and eat more!). There is a wide range of fillings for the crepes, some unusual but very good. You can choose the type of flour your crepes are made with. We tried... More

The crepes are fabulous, we ate there 3 times over 3 days and every meal was delicious. Highly recommend the crepe with goats cheese, pear and Brazil nuts unusual combination but works really well.

A great restaurant near the city centre in Arequipa. We were lucky to get one of the half dozen tables in the outdoor courtyard at this gem of a place. The staple crepe becomes something of an art form with the huge possibility of fillings. We chose crayfish and alpaca with Roquefort. Both were delicious - and portions much more... More

It is not the cheapest place to go if you're on low cost in Peru, however it was a real highlight of the day after eating chicken almost every day. I had salty and my boyfriend 2 sweet pancakes, and it was really tasty and good. We also had very nice tea and the atmosphere is very good there. The... More

We ate twice at this restaraunt. Once for breakfast/brunch and once for dinner. Great milkshakes. Breakfast crepes better than the dinner crepes. Good dessert crepes-banana and rum which they served with fire at table. Reasonable prices.

Looking for a light evening meal in Arequipa, this was suggested by our tour leader. Five of us went. The restaurant is warm, cozy and inviting, busy with local people. Staff were fun and engaging, and my wife went behind the counter and made her own crepes! Everyone cheered her on. Had both sweet and salty crepes, all were delicious... More
