Overlooking the river with a garden setting and live entertainment on a Saturday afternoon we had enormous serves of Chiccarone (crackled pork belly) and Americano which includes pork, spicy stuffed pepper and vegetarian pancake. Don't order too much!

This place wasn't exactly local and main stream. Felt like it catered to visitors, especially visitors. Regardless, food was good. I had a sample of fried cuy. Closest comparison is a cross between smooth chicken and frog legs. The rocotto relleno (small portion) was pretty good. The complex actually has 5 restaurants.

El Montonero is known throughout Arequipa as being one of the top restaurants however I have been there three times and haven't been particularly impressed. The prices are expensive, as expensive as the restaurants around the Plaza, they cater for large tour groups and as a result you can end up waiting for long periods of time to get served.... More

My family was visting from the US and we decided to try this place out. It's a great location with a great view. The facilities were bright and open with lots of outdoor space.
