Fantastic food and huge portions. It is not often that my husband can't finish a meal but the size of his meal today beat him. Lovely staff and great to watch a lady grinding corn to use in the restaurant

This restaurant is big, beautiful, traditional and packed. The food is outstanding. Our table ordered Arequipa papaya juice, Chicha Guiñado (traditional Arequipan slightly alcoholic beverage), Chupe de Camaorones (shrimp stew), a combo picanteria, and the pancetta. We cleaned our plates.
