We all had the meat served on the hot rocks: beef; alpaca; all delicious. Nice wines by the glass and we would recommend this place if you love freshly cooked steaks.

Zig Zag is a known place which keeps it's name high. A perfect place for a cozy dinner in an authentic ambiance. A varied menu, with options for everyone. Especially the meat dishes which are served on a stone grill are highly recommended.

We went to this restaurant on the recommendation of the taxi driver who drove us into town from the airport. The focus is on beef and Alpaca. The Alpaca certainly was very tender. The vegetable accompaniment was somewhat on the light side unfortunately. The wine...More

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.
