One of the best meals I had while in Peru. Went with the tasting menu which included beef, alpaca and pork served on a volcanic stone. Wish I was there right now.

They accept Visa! Make a reservation, although they will try to accommodate you if you didn't and are willing to wait a bit. Delicious food - on the more expensive side though compared to other restaurants but it's worth it!

Tasty meal at Zig Zag - our hotel recommended and the meal did not disappoint. Service was slow for ordering & paying but the food came out quickly. The gnocchi was a highlight!

You cannot go to Arequipa and not eat here! Amazing food- I had the three meat dish (alpaca, chicken and beef) which was delicious and the ratatouille and quinoa risotto to accompany it! Would highly recommend!

Great food, great atmosphere! Good fun with the big paper bibs. Typical cool Arequipan architecture with white volcanic rock tunnel. The iron special staircase was designed by Eiffel who designed the tower!

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.
