I live with my family of 5 in Arequipa and this is by far and away my favorite place to go to celebrate special occasions in this city. Ambience is romantic and quiet for dinner, but family friendly for lunch. My kids love sharing fondue...More

If you are in Arequipa and you fancy fine dining don't hesitate one second and go to Zig Zag, it was absolutely amazing! P.s. it is expensive in comparisson to other restaurants in Peru but affordable if you are a tourist

Please try lunch course! You can meet alpaka meet also! 생각보다 알파카고기가 넘나 부들부들 •_• 샐러드 빵 고기 후식까지...! 59솔이라는 다소 사악한 가격이지만 런치로 풀코스를 먹으니 한번쯤은 가볼만한것 같아요 +_+

Ambience is wonderful - most romantic place in Arequipa. Service is a bit lacking - I had to refill my own wine glasses twice. The food is fine. Serving EVERY dish on the stupid black volcanic stone with a cheap plastic bib is ridiculous. It's...More

We were so happy to find this place which has amazing vegetarian food, good wine and a nice ambience with a view of the church across the road. It's in a great spot easy to get to in the historic area, I'd definitely go back!

Great Alpaca, but a bit noisy for us. However if you have a group, reserve the back room, where it is quieter, and any noise you make won't bother others.

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.
