We visited Chicha on the recommendation of our hotel concierge. The restaurant is set in a covered courtyard. Our table had a view of the kitchen and its pizza oven. Service was friendly and efficient. Food quality is very good and portions generous. We'd be happy to eat here again.

We had heard amazing things about this restaurant and neither the food nor service disappointed. Alonso took great care of us and the food was presented and prepared to perfection. Highly recommend their cocktails (I ordered from the tonics menu), the classic ceviche, and the shareable plates -- that's the way to go in a larger group (we were 6).... More

The location is great, but the food isn't so good. The cervice, in my opinion, was full of onion and was quite impossible touch the real taste of the fish. Anyway the service was good and the wine too.

This place is really classy. The food was spectacular. I had a salmon with a pure which was really done masterfully. Great wine options too. The locations is very pretty inside an old ´quinta´

Wow, this place was such a treat. For drinks we ordered limonada and maracuya juice. Our appetizer was the piqueo with ocopa, potato with rocoto, and a salad with corn, habas, etc. All was delicious but the ocopa was killer!!! We had chupe de camerones (soup with fresh water shrimp, 64 soles) and adobo (3 different cuts of pork in... More

Went there upon recommendation to enjoy the so said best food in Arequipa. Portions were big and quality of the ingredients very good. Unfortunately for us the experience didn't justify the price. The service started off attentive but at some point it just stopped. Suddenly all tables were left alone, while there were 3-6 waiters present but rather waiting around... More
