Our best sit down meal in Peru! Beautiful and unique interior, very nice staff, great selection of beer and wine, and absolutely amazing food, order the Alpaca. Highly recommended for both small groups and date night and definitely a great bang for your buck.

Still, we ran into it by chance, remembered the name and gave it a try, getting the last available table for a delicious lunch. They had gluten-free options for my wife and I got a fresh water fish from the Amazon on the hot stone...More

With no doubt this is one of the best places to eat in Arequipa. Food is well prepared and the good service of the waiters are highlights for the restaurant. I would not change my mind.

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.
