The decor of the restaurant is very interesting. Many arequipa details.The decor of the restaurant is very interesting. Many arequipa details. The waiters dress in typical Arequipa clothes. The service is excellent. The dishes are very well served. If the person does not eat much, I suggest sharing with someone else.

The place is nice to take photos but the food is terrible. It has nothing to do with traditional arequipenian food. For example, soltero de queso looks like a tasteless salad, even a simple pollo a la plancha doesn't have even a decent quantity of salt and pepper. The only good thing I found was queso helado. And the prices are extremely high for this poor quality food. With these prices just go to Tanta (among other options) and eat good quality food!

Tipika is a great restaurant for traditional Arequipa dishes. I had the Cuy which is guinea pig. Taste was Great. 1st time tryng Cuy, it was real good. Also had chicharron taste was amazing.

The are a lot of picanterias in Arequipa. Tipika is a little bit outside of the center, 10 min to walk from the plaza de armas. Maybe that's the reason why it is so great! We had Chupe de campeones (60 soles) and Rocotto Releno (25 soles) both were great! One of the best meals in Peru!
