We visited after a full day tour, service was a little slow, but food was very good. We tried "solterito de queso", delicious. Our main dishes were very good too. Portions are generous and the place is huge.

This place is one of my favorites hands down you can eat great food for reasonable prices, you can also have a variety of courses coming from peruvian cousine and fusión to international plates. La comida los previos y la atención son excelente, definitivamente un lugar para ir por negocios, amigos o solo

On the pedestrian shopping street that takes off from the square, this very nice restaurant is located on the second floor above the high end stores like Kuna. Good sandwiches and desserts. Keep after the serving boys to keep your meal moving along.

Enjoyed coffee and pastries in the middle of the afternoon, after sightseeing and shopping all day. This restaurant had a good menu, but we were there for just coffee and a snack. Great location!

I went to El Ekeko in mall Aventura. The service was terribly slow (more than 1 hour). We were four and chose four different dishes. We had a hard time telling which dish was worst than the others. We concluded that they were at best very bad and decided never to go back to this place even if the food... More

We have been here on several occasions and have not yet been served a bad meal. Service slow as most places but the food makes up for it. Menu is very extensive and lots of great dishes on there. Never had their cocktail but they looked decent on the menu as well.

This was my first stop the evening I arrived in Arequipa. It's located on a shopping promenade that was reminiscent of back home on the Santa Monica Promenade. High end restaurant, art and gourmet store as well as clothier downstairs. Had a nice pasta dinner at El Ekeko and then did some power shopping at the stores all located in... More

We wanted a simple soup etc.for light lunch on our first day and were very disappointed. The cream of asparagus soup seemed from a mix, gloppy with tiny brown pieces that looked more like must have been mushrooms. The anticuchos were just ok. Expensive for what we got. Over 50 soles. Even though recommended to us, should have gone with... More
