If in truth the place is good and generally the food is good, the menu is incredibly long, it took me 5 minutes to read it and I just stopped paying it much attention half the way through.

We were given a table on the second floor on a Sunday afternoon. The serving portions are gigantic and the food was pretty good. We realised Peruvian meat tend to be on the salty side, and their seafood overcooked. Not sure if that's true but that's what we observed for the past few days since we've been here. The staff...

I've never seen city with so few playgrounds as Arequipa, so our kids went absolutely nuts when they saw the tiny playground at Tipica. Food was very good. Good atmosphere & attentive service

Tipika was a fun find toward the end of our trip. Upon entering, it was clear that this was a high-class restaurant, and the kids had a great area to play. The menu was decent, and to make my Peruvian trip as authentic as possible, I ordered the whole, fried guinea pig. It wasn't amazing, and whatever oil they fried... More

mostly open air seats, which is fine for lunch in Arequipa, where the sun shines almost year round. The menu presents typical dishes from Arequipa, the food is good, service is average. The venu is nice.

As the name suggests, this restaurant serves typical Peruvian food. Excellent portions and quality. Servers very helpful, although do not speak much English.It is a little way out of the centre but it is clearly very popular. There were lots of locals and business people there (always a good sign) as well as tour groups.

Our guide took us to this restaurant, the food was excellent and had a good varied menu. The staff were very friendly and the restaurant was busy. Most of the restaurant is outside but with plenty of shade from the sun. It is a lovely setting for a meal.
