It was Easter time. My friend and I alone in the restaurant. We were treated so well and the food prepared to our specific requests. The owner and chef trained in Florida. He is a master. Try it most definitely.

Fair food with good service. The atmosphere was really nice for lunch. The prices for the lunch set menu were excellent, but went up a little after five.

We stumbled into this place while walking down Jerusalem on a Sunday afternoon. It was late and we were the only ones there. The charming little restaurant has inside and outside tables. Service was slow, but we were in no hurry. My husband's beef had an interesting sauce with a little Peruvian bite and my trout was grilled just right.... More

My girlfriend found this place. Didn't get a good impression at first. Peruvian/French food? Really? But I ordered a weird pesto/aji fusion dish, and loved it. Service needs a bit of work, but the food was great and the price was very reasonable.

Sounded interesting - French Peruvian food. The building looks great and inviting, although the candlelight meant one of our group struggled to read the menu! We were there on a monday night, and it appeared there was only one member of staff to do everything - which meant very slow service (we suspected he was cooking everything too as he... More

Don't be fooled by the pleasant surroundings. The food and service in this place is truly awful. I have never posted a review on Tripadvisor before but felt compelled to as our experience was so bad. Dreary staff, incredibly slow service. When the "food" did eventually come, the portions were very small and tasted bland. The potatoes were powdery and... More

This is a lovely restaurant close to the Casa Andina Hotel in Calle Jerusalen in Arequipa. I loved the fish dishes which were perfectly cooked, and my Husbands meal was nearly as nice as mine. Being away from the main square, the meals were reasonably priced, and the service excellent. The staff were helpful and did not rush you. There... More
