“Best crepes in the world!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Lovely little restaurant! Cosy seating areas with board games provided, and a fantastic view from the roof. The food is great, with a large variety of sweet and savoury crepes and good coffee. Expensive for Peru, but compared to prices at home, this place was cheap! Service was a little slow, but this seemed to be fairly standard in South America.

“Lovely little place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013 via mobile

Our first meal in Peru was at Crepisimo and we were very happy it was! Ate their prix fixe special and chose the spinach and mushroom crepe, butter lettuce salad, ice tea, and queso halado (cheese ice cream...delish). As we were eating we remembered that we weren't going to eat salad or ice on our trip, as to avoid getting sick. We were happy when neither of these things served by Crepisimo affected us negatively...but left us feeling happy and satisfied. Be sure to go up the stairs and out to their rooftop deck for some great views of the volcanos and rooftops of Arequipa.

“So Simple, So Splendid!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013 via mobile

We just had lunch at Crepisimo and thoroughly enjoyed it. The chicken pesto crepe is super tasty and the ham and mushroom was simple but delicious. We were feeling greedy so followed the savoury crepes with sweet ones and they were also yummy! We may come back for dinner!!

“Legit French Crepes!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I both had a savory crepe and they were wonderful. I had the roquefort and mushrooms, which as very rich and flavourful...only for those who like strong cheese though! My husband had the spiniach, ham and cheese one, which was more mild but delicious. The cafe has board games on the table and has a very chill atmosphere. A mus visit! We are going to back to try the dessert ones!
