It was great to find Zíngaro, which is so close to Arequipa´s main attractions, with excellent food! It has typical food as well as delicious dishes that completely caught my eye. I went there my last day, but I would have returned if I would have had the chance to. Pick a table outside if the sun is out. The... More

On the first night in Arequipa, I tried Zingaro and wanted to try the Alpaca. An Arequipena beer arrived promptly, along with some delicious herb breads and olive oil. They recommended the alpaca medium, but I requested medium to well-done. They would have been right, but it was still amazingly succulent medium to well-done, in a lovely rosemary sauce with...

We went there based on Lonely Planet and Trip Advisor but to be honest, it was very mediocre. I had Cuy (guinea pig) - okay, nothing special. My brother had pork which was quite bland according to him.

We had previously had good food in Arequipa and decided to try a "top end" restaurant and so looked at Tripadvisor reviews, this was our second choice but we couldn't find the place we had looked for first so came to Zingaro. We asked for a table for two and were told we were lucky as we had no reservation... More

We were recommended this restaurant and combined with TA reviews decided to try it. We had deep fried cheese and ham pancakes with guacamole to start. These were very greasy and around 12 were far too many for two let alone one. I chose alpaca stroganoff (very rich and heavy) and my husband chose lomo saltado (not the near the... More

The place is magnificent, they have an excellent wine selection. The only problem is when they have to serve a large group of tourists that come at the same time. Orders become kind of slow. However, the food is the best and the wait is not much of a problems unless you are in a hurry. They have an open... More

Nothing but a positive experience. The restaurant itself is beautiful, like many of the buildings in Arequipa. It was Friday night but not busy. Lovely lighting, fast service, extensive drinks menu and fantastic attentive wait staff. It's a quality restaurant, so we didn't expect it to be cheap, but for s$130 we had a shared starter, main and 1/2l sangria.... More
