“Very local and tasty food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

Place seems to be mostly for local people , where you can eat traditional big portions of nice food ! We shared super Americanos and extra rocoto Wich was enough for our lunch . If u want to be among locals and eat good food -that's the one!

“Neighborhood picanteria for traditional fare”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

This was the first restaurant we went to in Arequipa. The place is cozy, not very clean but not too dirty. We ordered the cuy for our first peruvian experience. It was average along with the other diahes we tried but at that point we really didn't have much to compare it to. We did arrive later in the afternoon and they had run out of almost everything. I recommend going early for lunch so you have a better selection.
