“Potato Palace”
Reviewed July 23, 2014 via mobile

As a self-proclaimed foodie, a restaurant with this many varieties of potatoes is a dream come true.

I've never seen any good served like this before. It's delicious and a great value. The owner is extremely friendly and explains the menu well. He puts a little flag that says "welcome" and "potato" in the corresponding language of the country you are from. As Chinese/Taiwanese-Americans, our group got three flags!

The space is small, but we didn't have any trouble getting a table. The restaurant is in a good location and easy to find. Highly recommended!

“Loved it. If you love potatoes, you'll fall in love with this Place”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

Came here with high expectations after reading a couple of reviews here in Trip Advisor, and came away impressed. The food here was excellent and so was the service. And everything, at a reasonable price

Basically, you get a potato base from 5 different kinds of potatoes. You can also add some more variety to the mix when you're ordering for a little bit extra (S/.5 by the time I went there, Jul. '14). Then, you get to pick the toppings (or relleno). There's a wide variety of toppings you can order. I tried the cheese topping, and the rocoto relleno one. Both were excellent, and the mix between the toppings and the potatoes was amazing.

Definitely a place I'd go back to time and time again. And a place you just HAVE to visit if you're in Arequipa.

“small but good and very popular”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

The restaurant has few tables and is very popular so you better come early are reserve a table if you want to make sure you can eat here. We really enjoyed the typical peruvian potatodishes.

“1 potato, 2 potatoes….”
Reviewed July 14, 2014

An excellent place for a different lunch experience. As other contributors have mentioned - the main course is based on the not at all humble peruvian potato … in its many sizes, shapes, colours and tastes. And talking of taste - in this restaurant - you have a choice of wonderfully tasty toppings to go with the equally wonderful potatoes on the plate - and great service thrown in as part of the experience - AND at a great price. Highly, but highly recommended!

“Great potato place”
Reviewed July 10, 2014 via mobile

My boyfriend and I ate there our last dinner in Arequipa.

The restaurant is small (about 4 tables), and very colorful.
Once you sit down the waiter puts on the table a small flag of your country and the word 'potato' in your language.

The food is spacial. You get a few pieces of different kinds of potatoes with dressing at your choice.

The service is good and quick, the prices are low and you will not be leaving hungry.
