Updating since I first reviewed in 2010, and I live in Arequipa. ZigZag continues to stand out as among the top fine dining in Arequipa. The food is a Peruvian-Swiss fusion, so not traditional Peruvian, and the quality is consistent. The experience and atmosphere are...More

This restaurant is recommended in all the main guides and for a good reason. Meat is excellent and price very reasonable. Try as many desserts as your stomach can take.

Excellent service and one of the best meals we've ever had. For about 25% of the price you would pay in America for food of similar quality.

We went there as a group of 6 people and were seated in a comfortable séparée. The main dishes were very tasty, the best dish I had in all Peru. The dishes were served on a hot stone plate and so were "finished" at table....More

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.
