Any of the menus have enough quantity of food and have a wide range of flavours. We asked for menu "jungle" and "andes". Both were great. Presentation is also great and original!. As a side note, bathroom is very nicely decorated

There are a ton of great options in Arequipa if you want an authentic Peruvian experience, and this is not the one, but it doesn't claim to be either! Great mix of French cuisine with a Peruvian twist, fantastic staff and amazing drinks. Salud!

We ate at Zig Zag twice. The food is outstanding with quality service and excellent wine and cocktails. The house-made gnocchi pesto is magnificent. My wife and I shared it as an entree. I had a duo of grilled fish and the amazon freshwater fish...More

Virtually all reviews which we had read were full of praise for this restaurant. On the basis of our visit the eulogies were justified. The atmosphere was great - buzzing but not 'in your face'. The service was friendly and helpful without being over fussy....More

This restaurant was an event in itself. Although it is in fact quite big, it has a good intimate atmosphere and it has an interesting mix of formal and informal. The formal was represented by the careful presentation of the food on sizzling platters; the...More

We enjoyed our meal at this nice, cozy little place. The food was very good as was the service. Make a reservation - this relatively new place is getting popular!

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.
