A great example of the delicious Peruvian food in a lovely setting. They specialise in meat and Peruvian dishes and we recommend this restaurant.

In Town for a birthday and a slight hint to celebrate there.... and the perfect evening unfold! From A to Z everything was great: drinks (have a go at their various pisco sour), food, service, decor. Perfect.

Overall the place is too expensive for what you get 63s for a main (16 euro's) is a lot for something i could cook up in my own kitchen and do better. So overall the starter: Alpaca Tonnato. The sauce is key to this dish....More

The Alpandina dishes offered by the Zig Zag Restaurant are the result of a creative culinary fusion deeply rooted in the mountains, where the sun endows foodstuffs with energy and balanced components. The dishes most representative of Alpandino gastronomy arise from a marvellous synthesis of unique time-hallowed ingredients from all over Peru, combined with ancient and modern culinary techniques from the Alps and the Andes. One of the results is our great speciality: Volcanic-Stone-Cooked Meats and Fish. This culinary concept was generated specially by the restaurant's proprietor and Chef, Michel Hediger from Switzerland. During the course of many years in Arequipa, Peru, he has developed an original gastronomic proposal which enables one to savour different kinds of food prepared in an exclusive, healthy and very natural style, so that the restaurant's customers might compare and enjoy the country's different flavours. Located in the Historic Centre of Arequipa, opposite the lovely Plaza San Francisco, the Zig Zag Restaurant, with its impressive cast iron staircase designed by the famous French architect Alexandre Gustave Eiffel, is a unique place to enjoy a gastronomic evening with a difference.
