Lovely restaurant, with great food. Would recommend trying the meat, choose a couple different types and how you want it cooked. Each was cooked perfectly. Really liked the alpaca. Also had the fondue which was very tasty. But the highlight was the meat. Definitely GO

This is an exceptional restaurant and well worth a visit. We tried the trio of meats and the salmon on volcanic stone and both were great. The stuff is very friendly and the atmosphere excellent!

This restaurant is conveniently located in central Arequipa. I ate here twice. I loved their stone-grilled meat dishes that come in various sizes. Great atmosphere.

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.
