The atmosphere was great, the service was okay-we waited a while to be greeted by our server (even though our section was empty). The bread was good that they start you with. We shared the fondue which was far too large of a portion for...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

Being Trip Advisor number one restaurant we arrived at Zig Zag with big expectations and in my opinion those expectations were not fulfilled. Yes it is a great place but I have been to more interesting places. The reason why I believe there are better...More

This restaurant was an excellent choice for our group. We of course started with a pisco sour. I chose the quinoa soup (delicious), trout with baked potato and the trout was cooked perfectly. Service was great and and atmosphere warm and comfortable.

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.
