“Wonderful place, wonderful people”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

Fell into this little place after visiting the convent Santa Catalina and I was immediately impressed with the wine list so I stayed for lunch. Good Peruvian food with a flair. We had the lovely courtyard to ourselves all afternoon and the waiter was so attentive he ran to a local shop to grab me a Romeo y Juliet. Following coffee we enquired after a stairwell and were invited to the rooftop terrace and stayed until sunset with Cuba Libres and a monte christo.. Good value y bueno gente....

“Best meal I've had in Arequipa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

I have visited Arequipa several times on business trips and this is the best meal I've had there. The staff was really nice but not intrusive, the place is nicely decorated and the soft Andean music playing in the background sets the perfect mood. But, the food is the true star at this place, well presented and with a rich flavor. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

We went for lunch here and it was absolutely fantastic. We would highly recommend it. The food was very reasonably priced and was our favorite restaurant during our stay of 5 days on Arequipa.
