My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal and time at this restaurant. We had met the chef earlier in the day during a walking tour and received a tour of the kitchen and his unique cooking ingredients. The man genuinely enjoys cooking and appreciates how food brings people together. The portions are quite large and preparation takes slightly longer... More

Seriously one of the best meals I've had in my life. I got the sea urchin ceviche, the alpaca steak, and a glass of sweet white wine. It was expensive but worth it. The owner chef, a gracious & knowledgeable host, gave me a tour of the beautiful & interesting kitchen and also let me cook my own steak. I... More

Well...is the owner a charlatan or a genius?? I would say none of it. His intimediating personality certainly is special and his esoteric approach on cuisine isn't everbodies take,but on the other hand the food is good but not the eclipse of cooking. Question:Is it worth to go there? Absolutely! Just try the Ceviche and the Cuy and tell me... More

We ate in the restaurant after we visited it on a city tour, were we met the owner and chef as well. He was very passionate about cooking and sold his idea pretty well. On that night we had alpacca steak and ribs and both was delicious. On top of that, we sat on the terace and enjoyed fireworks on... More

The chef and owner is quite a character, he proposes what he calls pre-Inka cuisine. He has researched the ingredients and cooking techniques that would be available in ancient andean culture and applys it to his kitchen. Very interesting and delicious food, and personal adaptations of popular dishes that you will not find in any typical food restaurants as far... More

I knew this place thanks to the free walking tour in Arequipa and Walter was so charming that I came back with two girls to taste his food. It was one of the best culinary experience of my life. Thank you Walter, for your love and your food!

Service is chaotic. Ordered ceviche as a starter and was delivered together with the main courses. Spoiled the whole meal. The taste of the ceviche was good, but some pieces were hard as rubber. The alpaca was very good. But the duck specialty again was disappointing as well as the side dishes.

They give us access to the rooftop and a tour of the kitchen as part of the Free Walking Tour. The owner was very passionate about what he does. He cooked some lomo de alpaca for us and gave every one a sample. It was amazing to see that he cooks it right on the coals. The kitchen was very... More
