We had lunch here and had the best Alpaca on the whole trip. The service was excellent as was the rest of the food. Would love to come here again one day. It was really good. A must when you're in Arequipa.

Based on a recommendation of our digital guide, the best guinea pig or so calles "cuy". Even if those are mascots back home, it was interesting to see it fried. They're big, much bigger than our mascots, and it looked weird, an entire fried guinea...More

My husband and I spent one week in Arequipa. We are frequent travelers to Peru, but this was our first time in this city. Of all of the meals we had (at some of the "best rated" places), Zig Zag was by far our favorite....More

Zig zag is a good restaurant. Food was nicely cooked but the place is in my view overrated. Portions are small, the meat dish I had was prepared like in any other country in Europe. There was nothing/little Peruvian about the meal. Was just like...More

This was amongst the best food we had during our stay in Peru. The staff were very friendly and the food was delicious. Relatively expensive compared to surrounding restaurants, but still cheap by European standards and certainly worth it!

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.
