We had a big plate of piqueos (starters) and then pescado teriaky and we ended with queso helado (peruvian speciality, sort of milk ice cream with a hint of cinamon). All the dishes were just perfect! Best tiradito (kind of ceviche without onions/raw fish) and best, beeeest, BEST queso helado I've ever had! The consistency of this ice cream and... More

My husband and I had lunch here with a guide while on a relocation visit and were very impressed by the food and the atmosphere.

An impressive and extensive fish menu - I had the causa rellena with crab which was exquisite! The restaurant is situated in an enclosed garden which attracts the local hummingbirds. Great prices, beautiful food, and a peaceful atmosphere - highly recommended!

Wonderful fresh fish and ceviche in a garden setting away from the masses. The restaurant is tucked just off the plaza at the Yanahuara square and has delightful fish dishes. The staff is helpful and service superb.

For only going for a ceviche or ordering other plates this place is awesome I strongly recommend the Takuyaki de Camarones and the Chita both amazing, also is located in one of the most beautifull districts of the city, Yanahuara and its main square

I went here for Saturday lunch and decided to come back for Sunday lunch during my last weekend in Arequipa. The outside dining garden is really nice. The food and service are great too. I saw many local people hanging out with their families and friends here. Highly recommend it!

We were looking for nice seafood in Arequipa and were not disappointed with the serving size and the food quality. Certainly not the cheapest in town but if your in the area it's worth a try.

Always good. We go every year once or twice and choose different items. Plenty to pick from. We always prefer to sit outside in the garden. Service is excellent.

Nice place, great food. You can go with friends, family, but there aren't games for children. Sometimes you're going to be almost alone, once I went with a group of friends, we ate in the garden, flowers perfum the place, when it was almost night, we went inside.
