Was actually headed to a different restaurant but came back here as looked more lively. Cute little restaurant with lovely atmosphere and nice staff. However food quality was mixed. Steak itself was great, although the novelty of the hot plate does wear off as it...More

Food is good, cuts of beef are generous and aged. We love the cheese fondue, outstanding dish for two. Wine list is also good with reasonable prices. Absolutely necessary to make a reservation due to the extremely high number of tourists that patronize this establishment....More

This resturant is relatavly expansive but the dishes are served very nicely with a beautiful design. The food itself was good but not amazing.

All of the food served here was exceptional, especially the hot volcanic stone plates (meats and fish) and smoked salmon appetizer! The atmosphere is great, the only thing lacking was the friendliness of our server, she barely said a word to us. Also, they had...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.
