Reviewed March 1, 2020

This restaurant is located in a historic building, sensitively preserved. The staff is great. I found the menu to be a bit lacking in pizzazz, and the food and its presentation to be unimaginative. For example, I had the puréed vegetable soup. It came without...garnish in a pottery bowl. The night before I had had the same soup at my hotel restaurant. The chef there did a lovely pattern on top of the soup with creme fraiche. This isn't a big point obviously, but I was surprised that the number one rated restaurant in Arequipa didn't seem to be trying very hard. The soup was fine as was the grilled trout with roasted vegetables, but really nothing above the ordinary. The soup and fish I had at my hotel were every bit as good. The pisco cocktail I selected was unavailable, which struck me as odd. The cocktail menu was limited pretty much to pisco variations and gin. It said there were classic cocktails available as well, so I asked for a mai tai. Nope, not available either, so I settled for a cuba libre. This is a perfectly fine restaurant. Just not sure what I got for the prices I paid, that was over and above the standard. I'm surprised it is the number one restaurant in Arequipa. Chicha has a much more interesting menu, food and presentation.More

I've gone here for the breakfast buffet several times and it's been a consistently excellent experience. The server Sheyla from the beginning remembered my name and preferences. The live harp music by Julián is impressive and a perfect accompaniment for breakfast. The food is quite...good as well! Highly recommended.More

We decided to just stay in at our Hotel Casa Andina Premium on our last night as we were exhausted from 2 amazing days in Arequipa. We walked over to Alma and were greeted and seated immediately. Our waiter Aquiles was the best, he explained...all the dishes we asked about along with the wine selection for my wife who choose a Peruvian red. Food was fresh, tasty and timely. Jahir & Sheyla were wonderful as well helping make our last night in Arequipa a memorable one. Thanks again, The Hynes family.More
