The food and service at el ekeko is very good.Large assorted grill with 2 glasses of wine came to 62soles which I consider value. Would have no hesitation in going back .Upstairs within walking distance to main plaza in busy shopping area is distinct advantage as you can walk the meal of shopping

I live in Arequipa and have visited all of the El Ekeko's locations (malls, and Mercaderes downtown) multiple times since their openings. I have had so many negative experiences, I won't go back. They started as a good sandwich and juice place, similar to the ever-over-crowded Cappricios. Now their menu has climbed to prices of s/35 per sandwich and their... More

Great location, Food just OK. Service was less than mediocre: waiter was not interested in serving, we got our own drinks from bar counter!

I'll keep this short. We had a great grilled platter that came with an assortment of meats and some rather tasty veggies. The food was well worth the visit, but the service was not at all friendly, and for the price I think they should at least fake a smile once and a while. The atmosphere was more like a... More

During our travels we ate at this restaurant in the mall and the city of Arequipa at least 5 times as it was easy to meet friends and also have a drink at the bar. We found the service to be excellent in particular Junior and Carina being very helpful, so much so we requested them everytime we went to... More

This is a nice place to have drinks, food with family or friends; service is polite. You can find it in one of the main streets of Arequipa.

Looks, feels and tastes like any other American chain restaurant and easy to see why most visitors rave about the place. If you are home sick for good looking tasteless food, then this fits the bill perfectly. Over priced by Peruvian standards, but you get nice looking picture menu's and well dressed staff.
