I had my first gourmet dinner in Arequipa at this restaurant and boy was it worth it!

I ordered an Osobuco with a side of raviolis stuffed with spinach and covered in
fresh three cheeses sauce. I ordered the vino de casa (white house wine) and
their modern take on TRES LECHES CAKE.

I was stuffed to satisfaction. Everything went together perfectly.
The staff is manned by expert waiters and true gentlemen.

I ask a lot of questions and the young gentleman that took my order
had the patience and gusto to suggest dishes and give honest opinions
regardless of the price!

DO GO here! I suggest getting a table at the BACK of the resturant for greater
privacy and quiet.

Don't sit in the middle as this is where the BATHROOM is! ;D

Apenas bom. Não é caro nem barato, preço médio mesmo. Tomamos um vinho peruano beeemmm....razoável. Acho que essa é a palavra que melhor define o local porque a comida estava apenas ok. Não sei se tem a ver com o fato de, no dia anterior, ter ido ao Chicha.

Comemos massa mas honestamente já experimentei melhores e em restaurantes mais simples do que esse.

De qualquer modo, sendo perto do hotel (La Hostería), vale a pena uma visita. Mas se tiver uma outra opção, não a perca.

It's just average. The prices are exactly what the food is, i mean, the food is only "ok" but the restaurant doesn't charge us too much for it.

We've tried some peruvian wine. Good experience to know it but not to repeat. Anyway, it's very near the hotel we were at but if you have an invitation to go to another restaurant and you are sure it'll be pleasant, don't waste you time here.

Right beside Santa Catalina convent, prettily decorated. Three small rooms,choose the middle as the others can be draughty .
Service a bit offhand.
