Definitely go while in Arequipa

The restaurant is beautiful, the food was excellent and the portions were plentiful. Service was very good as well. Of all the meals we had in our 3 weeks in Peru I think this was probably my favourite. I had Zingaro chicken and we also tried one of their steak dishes (sorry can't remember which... read more

Visited this restaurant as it was really busy during lunch time and as we walked by at dinner time it was the busiest in the area. So glad we did, it was amazing. The guys had the Al Paca, 1 Stroganoff and the other fillet with Rosemary. I had the Quinoa with veggies and Peruvian sauce and mum had the... More

The restaurant is housed in a white sillar volcanic stone structure with a visible kitchen. The menu can be somewhat confusing, as there are apparent two different English menus with some variation between them. Wine selection is adequate and reasonably priced. The service was attentive with good explanations in English for questions that we had about the menu. This was... More

Like others wrote, it is not worth to try. It smells like from kfc, could be chicken or whatever... Guinea Pig baked is very nice... But not available here

Had a semi-posh restaurant atmosphere. The local delicacies are well worth a go, however the guinea pig tasted just like KFC. The llama steaks were cooked to perfection.

The food here is amazing, and at reasonable prices too. They have a good selection of wine and craft beers (try the Barbarian 174 IPA it's great, as are the coca sours). I had a very good steak, cooked to perfection and the service was extremely friendly, helpful and attentive.

The restaurant was recomended by our hotel staff and we decided to follow their recomendation.It is a charming little restaurant on two levels with live music(piano) and great wine list.We were quite surprised by the prices,considering that is tourist orientated-it is not cheap nor is expensive,I would say it is reasonably priced,especially the wine!Good choice for supper.

We happened on this neighbourhood resto by chance around the corner from our hotel, in the old town of Arequipa. My friend ordered a platter with alpaca meat which she liked very much, and I had fetuccine with prosciutto, with a nice large mixed salad before. I had a few issues with one of the dishes , but the waiter... More

Restaurant caters to tourist. So if you are looking for an authentic experience I recommend you keep looking. However, the restaurant is beautiful, the staff is friendly and attentive, and the food is good. I had: 1. MIXED CREOLE APPETIZERS - combination of baked pork, fried cheese, typical ocopa (Peruvian sauce), and sauce of the house. 2. CREOLE SOUP -... More
