I was disappointed with this restaurant. I chose one of the trout dishes but it wasn't quite up to par for me. The other thing which 'spoiled' our evening was the fact that the four of us had ordered our meal when a large group...More

Visited here for evening supper. The restaurant is situated in a beautifully converted church, with some original features remaining. The service was excellent, staff were friendly and informative. The food was the best we had in Arequipa - steak cooked to perfection and a perfect...More

We went at 6 PM because Peruvians fill the restaurant later. The food was delicious. Fish cooked perfectly. Waitress lovely. Only drawback ....don't sit near the bar because the blender is quite noisy.

Home in on this restaurant as it's the only one that seems to offer guinea pig. Meal was OK. Disappointed with guinea pig in that the skin was not crispy throughout as it should be. The Alpaca steaks were better.

This is one of the best restaurants in Arequipa and it offers amazing value. There is a broad choice of dishes and you obviously have to try the quinoa - but then you can't avoid quinoa in Peru :-)

Maybe I was unlucky. One of three people in the restaurant at lunchtime. First came focaccia which had been microwaved to warm it up so tough as old boots. Then Caesar salad with oil soaked soggy croutons, old lettuce and spicy salad cream type dressing....More
