This is one of my favorite places to go when feeling like one drink and good food. It is not a cheap place, but either overpriced. I find it very fair. Service is always excellent. Super clean and nice all the time. The whole environment is positive for any kind of meeting or solo menu in your break time. From... More

Visited this afternoon and bought a couple of gifts. Was worried about getting them back to Australia in my luggage but the employees wrapped them expertly in bubble wrap. Very happy with the experience.

My friend and I visited the restaurant thinking it would be a great place to have some snacks and cocktail. Boy we were wrong. We ordered the piqueo tipico. Items were missing from the tray, the chicharrones were hot but the anticuchos cold. We sent it back so we could get it at the right temperatures, they literally stuck the... More

This little "mall" of four floors was created especially for tourists, just one block from the Plaza de Armas. Since our hotel (Sonesta Posadas del Inca -see my review!) was just around the corner, this was an easy stroll to pick up some souvenirs. What they sell here is good quality and prices are accordingly. There are some restaurants too,... More

We had to double check the location and ask for directions to find this restaurant, even though it is close to the main square. However, we enjoyed a lunch there. It doesn't have a view, although above street level, but in return provides a bit a of a relief from the hustle and bustle of the streets.

First time to Arequipa and this was our first real dinner there,,,besides Mc'Donalds that I was craving. The prices were very reasonable, especially considering the amount of food you received. Plus, there is a lot to see in the building, it's like a museum and shopping mall on multiple levels. Some cool statues and a great carving along the center... More
