We were excited to visit Zig Zag after reading great reviews and recommendations in travel books but unfortunately, we were underwhelmed. The waitress seemed distracted - she took my menu off me after the rest of my party had ordered and started to walk off...More

Great food, great atmosphere! Good fun with the big paper bibs. Typical cool Arequipan architecture with white volcanic rock tunnel. The iron special staircase was designed by Eiffel who designed the tower!

Make reservations - this place is immensely popular and there seemed to be a lot of large groups when we visited. Everything we ate was excellent - the meat trio, which we thought at first sounded a bit gimmicky, was actually really tasty and a...More

Loved the food. Very tasty and the location is so walkable from the plaza and the monastery. We ordered some grilled dish for two and it wasn't as we expected. But i think it is our misunderstanding. They helped us by giving more fish which...More

As a recommendation from our hotel, we went here on our first night. We are typically budget to mid range travelers, but this splurge at approx $100 was worth every penny. Two delicious pisco sours, a beautiful bottle of Argentinian wine, appetizer, 2 entrees. Phenomenal....More

We had the Amazonian fish and the three meats (alpaca, lamb and beef) cooked on the volcanic stone, and pisco sours. Everything was delicious, and the staff were friendly and attentive.

This was by far the best restaurant we dined at in Peru. Better than Chicha. This restaurant gives you a unique and exciting dining experience that you won't find anywhere else. The tastes, the service, the ambience--these things made for a rich, 5-star experience.

Description
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.
