Maybe the best served meat in our 3 weeks travelling around in Peru?! A bit prizy but very cozy atmosphere in a fantastic building. We tried the alpaca loin and alpaca+beef+lamb-plate. Enjoyable when dressed in huge bibs since everything was sizzling hot!

A lovely smallish restaurant. Everything about ZigZag was excellent, the location, staff, ambience and, of course, the food. We had an excellent meal and a thoroughly enjoyable evening here. The price is reasonable by UK standards. Highly recommended but book early.

Really enjoyed the fixed price vegetarian lunch option. It was wonderful to have a fresh salad and the gnocchi was delicious. The chocolate mousse was the perfect finish.

Great food, great location, great staff, nothing lacking. Funky building with a spiral staircase to the second level. If you are a couple, try and reserve a balcony seat. Great twist on meat presentation, served on a hot stone so you ultimately decide how you...More

Heaps of hype and endless reviews always worry me! Happy to report that we couldn't fault this. Salmon and trout carpaccio was impeccable, 80's style prawn cocktail just as good, presentation was world class. Shared the large size Duck/Beef/Alpaca combo. Asked for rare. Rare delivered,...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.
