This is a nice restaurant with lovely courtyard garden setting. That is the best feature about it. At the time we were there there was live music also, which was nice. The food was ok but nothing specil. Considering this I think it is overpriced, but the portions were big. So, if you looking for authentic local food, there are... More

It was highly recommended in my guide, but I found it frustrating. Very touristic menu, and pricey as well. The setting is nice, but with so many great catering options in Arequipa, I regretted coming here.

Lovely restaurant with a huge outdoor courtyard seating area. Got to peek in one of their interior seating areas so I know they have them. Otherwise, I would argue they didn't. They have great shading. Local musicians played when we were eating. Got to try their fried calamari, seafood dish and queso helado which is a local favorite. Freshly made... More

This is a very attractive restaurant in a nice location. We had the cuy and the fish, both were excellent. A little on the pricier side. I recommend it to anyone.

Lovely setting, sitting out in the garden. We decided to pass on the guinea pig but the local river shrimp was wonderful. Live music at lunchtime, all in all really enjoyed it.

Nice restaurant with mostly local people, good and quick service. Good local food at good prices. However too far out from the center which has better restaurants.

The place feels touristy. Not sure if the food was authentic but it did not taste great. There are better picanterias.

Firstly, the level of English spoken here was limited, so I was fortunate to be travelling with native Spanish speakers (though they may have other more proficient staff). My colleagues ordered some dishes to share which were great. I then ordered the Guinea Pig (Cuy) which was something I had been told to try before leaving home. It was certainly... More

This is one of the certified picanterias in Arequipa but it clearly has moved up to a modern restaurant. The outdoor seating is great. Our waiter was attentive and moved 2 umbrellas to provide enough shade. Food was excellent: the best lomo saltado we've had in Peru. Live music made for a good atmosphere. Easy to walk here from mirador.
