There are more places with nice outdoor seating. I ordered tortilla de camarones and it wasn't good. (shrimp omelet)

The garden is lovely for lunch. The food is fine. The service is fine. Everything is fine except for the busloads of tourists. The restaurant is designed to accommodate very large groups, but loses much of its charm when the crowd of tired tourists marches through.

This is one of the most well-known restaurants in the city and is a popular choice for tourists and locals on special occasions. I recently visited here and had the ever-popular "lomo saltado." I was vomiting it up within hours. Everyone else, who ordered other plates, was fine. But I was made VERY sick for several days and needed antibiotics to recover. I know cross-contamination can happen anywhere, but I expect more from such a pricey and distinguished restaurant. It will make me think twice before returning, particularly with sensitive-stomached tourists.

If you have already tried a "picantería" and you still want to try more good local food, go there for lunch, choose the garden or corridors. Food quality is good, but nothing cheap. Have some beers and enjoy the amazing warm weather in Arequipa.

Beautiful, ample, clean, great food and excellent service. The "chupe the camarones" was great. Did not care much for the "adobo".
