We walked in to Zingaro for a late dinner in April 2014. Zingaro is a very cool and swanky restaurant.....dim-lighting, quiet, and a great place to sit down and have a conversation. I only ordered a glass of red wine, and the fried Cuy -- and it was fried, so I do not have much to review. The cuy was... More

I was excited to try Zingaro based on the reviews we read prior to our visit. Our hotel made us a reservation and the staff promptly seated us with a view of the working kitchen which was quite nice. The food was average in our opinion. Our experience at Zig Zag the night before had been so excellent that this... More

We had an excellent dinner here. We highly recommend the lomo stroganoff! The restaurant was mostly full of your groups and their guides who most probably brings them there. Unfortunately we decided to return during the advertised operations hours for an early dinner the following day before we left for Lima but we were turned away, despite the entire restaurant... More

We were looking for a nice dinner out in Arequipa and popped into Zingaro on a Friday night at about 7pm. No reservation needed, though it became much busier in the subsequent two hours. We ordered the ceviche de estacion (It was a white fish) and house pisco sours to start. The ceviche tasted great and fresh but many of... More

We booked this restaurant, purely by passing it as it looked trendy and had an interesting menu - modern Peruvian. This proved to be an excellent choice. We both had the huge house ceviche as a starter! Delicious. The main of Fish in herbs was superb. The service is very warm and friendly and the meal was excellent value. Its... More

Went there on our last evening in Arequipa to have a real good last dinner and we're absolute not disappointed. We had fish if the season ( dorade) and alpaca. Both were great and with that little extra spice that makes the difference.

Having been recommended this restaurant in the lonely planet travel guide we were far from disappointed. The food was exquisite, surprisingly so for how good value and reasonable the cost. The venue is gorgeous and the family who run it are warm and charming. Perfect.

Really tasty food and good service. We ate here when we couldnt get into ZigZag, however I think that this meal was just as good as the acclaimed ZigZag. The waitress was helpful and allowed us to change some side dishes that were coming with our steaks. Although the order was correct a problem with the main courses resulted in... More

Zig zag was booked out (was there the night before) so tried zingaro. Very impressed. Both of us has a different beef steak and was both were an excellent cut of meat. Unfortunately both our main courses were pretty cold but there was no problem getting them re-heated and we were adequately compensated. Would be a tough call whether would... More
