We went there in August, family of 4. Food is great and the service was very professional. You need to make a reservation. Price is reasonable versus the quality of the food.

As with all Gaston Acurio restaurants everything is great from food to service to decor. I love the ceviche ( essentially raw fish in line juice with onion and spicy peppers). Also the Peking Cuy is the best way to introducer yourself to eating guinea pig. Many other more standard dishes for those who are less adventurous. Lot of great... More

You simply know that the food will be good when going to one of Gaston Acurio's places. This time the expectations were met again at Chicha. Delicious food and super service!

Very interesting experience - very large helpings of food in a contemporary atmosphere, and you can look into the kitchen, too. Didn't find what I ordered as tasty as I had hoped, but really entertaining and worthwhile. Go if you can afford it.

Upmarket restaurant in Arequipa. Good food (especially our octopus starter) and excellent service. We would recommend this for a fancy night out.

Hadn't made a reservation for dining, but since it was early (6:30) they were able to accomodate us. Interesting atmosphere. Lovely appetizer and really good food.

We tried the Cauche de Queso (S⁄.32), the Alpaca la Curry (S.⁄49) and the Aguadito de Cordero (S.⁄46) all very good with exquisite tastes. They accommodated the kids with grilled chicken, chicken nuggets and papas fritas (all very tasty) and pens and coloring pages for the wait. They even had a sommelier (Spanish> sumiller, how fun is that!!) who was... More

A beautiful location, close to the Plaza de Armas. and monastery Santa Catalina. A great atmosphere in the old colonial downtown of Arequipa. Stopped in for lunch with three small grandchildren. Was hesitant to stay due to high end appearance. The wait staff was welcoming and attentive. Took care of our needs. The bread platter was so fabulous. Also enjoyed... More
