Four Australians went to dinner with high hopes. The expensive wine was corked and graciously replaced. However, we were charged for the more expensive wine which was corked. There was no apology when this fairly significant error was noticed. The alpaca ribs in wine were tough with a primitive BBQ sauce over these 'chops'. The signature Peruvian shrimp chowder was...

Zingaro is definitely one of the best restaurants in Arequipa! The atmosphere is terrific with an enthusiastic staff. It's obviously a little touristy - which validates its excellent reputation - but locals can also be seen dining. It's very easily located from the city center. The portions are more than generous, the menu is diverse, and the wine and drink... More

Delicious food, great service and lovely atmosphere. Good local food was on offer from cuy to alpaca, for the quality of food we thought it was reasonably priced!

We had rocoto relleno and trout. The trout was very good, but the rocoto relleno was not of the same standard. The menu is extensive, and would probably benefit from a bit of pruning.

One of the best restaurants in Arequipa in a very nice old colonial house. The cebiche was wonderful and also the Alpaca Lomo (beef) with sweet potatos and yucca. A very good selection of wines too. The Price was quite high.

Having been in Peru for over 20 days before reaching Arequipa, we had had a variety of foods from typical local fare to haute cuisine, cooking classes and gourmet tours. But this meal was a foodie delight: the catch of the day ceviche was excellent with the typical sweet potato garnish, the lomos saltado appetizer ( we substituted guacamole for... More

We went there based on Lonely Planet recommendation with our 2 kids (11 and 13). The restaurant is very nice and they accepted kids. There is a nice view on the kitchen, which is interesting since you can see how they fry cuys. I had cuy, my wife had the trout and my kids the llama ribs. The food was... More

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
