Main meals and drinks were extremely overpriced for the very small portion sizes. Admitedly the deserts are great, but this does not compensate for the poor value main dishes.

I liked the variety of the desserts offered.
I think the drinks here are a GREAT price in comparison to nearby
gourmet restaurants that serve up the same thing for 3x the cost.

I did not like the butterscotch ice cream I ordered on my last day because it was overflowing in stale whip cream.

I did however like there TRES LECHES CAKE.

Both locations I found were nice. The closest to the plaza de armas
is really great for reading or a simple breakfast with friends. Really spacious and warm environment!

Large selection of very tasty cakes (we tried the maracuya mousse, key lime pie and chocolate cake). Menu has a lot of items and we thoroughly enjoyed everything we ordered (pizza/sandwiches). The portions were good. Will definitely return if we ever go back to Arequipa.

We went here in the early afternoon when the place was quiet just for a coffee. There is a large display of wonderful looking cakes and some locals were in buying slices to take away, so we were tempted. Both coffee and cake were excellent and the service was efficient. A few minutes after leaving Capriccio I realised I had left my bag with my camera in it on a chair there so rushed backto retrive it (hopefully). On returning, the waiter produced the bag from behind the counter as we came through the door, to our relief. Many thanks to the honest staff. We would have returned for an evening meal but had to leave later that day, the menu looked good, as did the meals we saw.

We went to the Capriccio in the afternoon just to have a coffee and juice. Wanted to go there because the place looked really charming and has a nice patio, too, where you can sit. The coffee and juice were just fine, nothing special, but the service was very poor. We were the only guests at what was not a busy time, yet the waiter took forever to bring us menus, the drinks and later the bill, instead chatting with his colleague at the bar. If he had been friendly, this would have been acceptable, but not even a glimpse of a smile was to be seen... Very disappointing experience in what is otherwise a nice location. I will definitely not come here again.

Hemos puesto atención en estos meses a mejorar nuestro personal y capacitarlo para mejorar tiempos de servicio, gracias por mencionarla ubicación, efectivamente es inmejorable en el centro de la ciudad, pero lo animamos a visitarnos y comprobar las mejoras.
