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

Came alone and wanted high class peruvian food. I got it all to very cheap price given the standard on everything: food, atmosphere, friendliness. Go there and enjoy ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€

We were looking for typical Peruvian food and a good place we found. The restaurant is near the center of the old town. it was not busy at all. The portion were generous. The wine was very reasonably priced. It is not cheap by Peruvian standards but the food is more 'sophisticated" than other restaurants that have similar menu items.... More

Nice restaurant but nothing outstanding except the sangria which we both enjoyed. My girlfriend had the Alpaca and I had the Cuy. Both were extremely salty both otherwise tasty. Learn the phrase "No sal pro favor".

Went quite early for dinner without a reservation - good job we were early as the restaurant was completely full by about 7.30. It has a modern, bistro feel to the place, staff are friendly and there is a reasonable choice on the menu - not too much but enough for some interesting dishes. I think we got free bread... More

I went here very recently and was highly impressed with the level of service. The starter we had ordered was slightly late, which we had barely noticed, but the staff gave us free little platters to keep us going until it arrived, as well as free water and the offer for free dessert, which we declined, already too full on...

Zingaro was a good but not outstanding dining experience in Arequipa. The restaurant is well located in the heart of the fine dining area and is well presented inside. The pisco cocktails were very good. My wife had a beautifully prepared cut of beef under a delightful mushroom sauce. I had Cuy (guinea pig) that was unremarkable. A very basic... More
