On arriving in Arequipa, we were recommended to try this place. Not cheap, but this was my first taste of Peruvian food and I was not disappointed. I think the restaurant is in two parts and we were upstairs on the right hand side. Really...More

Highly recommend this place. For starter was the thinly sliced salmon and trout- followed by the trio of meat on a sizzling plate, side dishes and a nice bottle of wine. The trio of meat was very tasty! Great decor and atmosphere throughout.

Great service and excellent food. I had the pesto gnocchi and my partner had the chicken cooked on volcanic stone, both were delicious and fresh. This restaurant is not cheap, however its well worth the price.

The staff at my Arequipeño hotel recommended Zig Zag, and they were right. The food was excellent (I had the meat trio: beef, alpaca, lamb) and the service was terrific. Well staffed so your every need was tended to quickly. It was a gourmet experience!

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.
