Simply fabulous! All the staff who work at the restaurant are charming. You feel they are your friends forever, because of the way they explain each dish and guide you through the entire experience. One of my favorite dishes was the frozen cheese ice cream, exquisite! Another night I returned to eat one, after dinner. The fried cheese is also delicious and the stuffed rocotto can not be missed. I recommend that it be the first restaurant you visit in Arequipa, you will not regret it! Good prices.

This restaurant features tasting menus, with 4, 6, or 8 courses of authentic food--too much food for me and a bit too expensive. Our server, the owners grandson, told us we could order any course separately, so we did. The salad-type dish I ordered was very good and plenty to eat. My partner's relleno was excellent, and was more than he could eat. Our server gave us a brief explanation of our dishes when he brought them to us--a very nice touch. The restaurant's setting in a courtyard of a former cloister makes this restaurant even more memorable.

This is worth going to just because of the ambiance. Very cute! We had guinea pig and a drink and it was lovely!

Went there on our last night in Arequipa. The setting is beautiful and staff attentive. Only disappointment was the food which was not as great as we had hoped. Prices could also be a little lower for what we got. I would still go back and recommend it.

We found this place by accident and we found it really good, nice environment, and the food is excellent, they explain to you the history of each plate and they are very nice. Because we were 2 we couldn't eat their specialty that consist of various dishes so you can taste a whole experience but it was really good, if I go back to Arequipa definitely I would back to this place.
