The best overall experience of any restaurant on our entire two-week trip in peru, and far exceeded a few of the other Arequipa top 10 restaurants we also tried.

Beautiful decor, courtyard, and umbrellas made for a very unique setting. The calamari appetizer was great - piping hot, crispy and fresh, in addition to the complimentary mini cocktail and house appie (Andean potatoes and cheese). All of our mains were delicious - I had a seafood tacu tacu that was great. Topped off with a few drinks and perfectly timed service.

Food was delicious, service was possibly the best I´ve had during my whole time in Peru and the courtyard we were seated in is another testament to the beauty of Arequipan architecture.

This restaurant has a lovely atmosphere, with several, separate dining areas, each with a unique feel. We sat in a courtyard, protected from the pigeons and the midday sun by a lattice of umbrellas. The food was exceptionally delicious, but unpretentious. There is a great mix of styles, from Peruvian to Turkish to sushi, but each style is treated respectfully. This isn't one of those 'fusion' restaurants where the food has lost all sense of identity. Definitely one of the best meals I've eaten in Arequipa. Excellent wine selection. The less expensive wines are very good. I can't speak about the expensive ones, because they're really expensive. They probably taste just like wine. You should eat this food.

This is a wondrful restaurant, located in a historic white-stone building several blocks from the main plaza. The atmosphere in the several different areas of the restaurant is very special. We ate in the courtyard with the white floasting umbrellas overhead - heaters provided as the evening was cool. Unique and comfortable furnishings, candles, pleasant music and attentive staff made the evening very special.

Our dinner (botht the food and the setting) was the best we had in Peru. The restaurant describes the food as comida peruana fusion - and provides a very interesting and varied menu I had the cebiche and the cuy (had to try it). My husband has some appetizers and pepper steak - everything was delicious. The bottle of wine was reasonably priced.

We would not hesitate to recommend it.
