A friend recommended Zig Zag and we were lucky to get a reservation. The three meats cooked on a sizzling rock were tender, moist, and delicious. The potatoes were really good. Service was excellent too.

I loved so many things about this place. It is quaint and nostalgic. The staircase is built by Gustav Eiffel. The food is served on lava bricks. I do not like fish and had a bite of my husband's salmon- would have eaten the entire...More

We had two of the volcano stone meals - 3 fish and crayfish. Food was beautifully cooked and presented. Also very nice desserts. Good atmosphere and friendly staff. Looks like you need to make a reservation. Disappointed people at the door.

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.
