Ate at ChiCha for our last night in Peru and it was hands down the best meal of the trip. Excellent and creative menu, tentative staff, good timing of the courses, all in a beautiful environment. While prices are a bit higher than in most...More

Beautiful place and the food is really well executed. Very good if you want to know peruvian cuisine with a hint of modern.

I was really looking forward to this restaurant, as the owner is Gaston (of Astrid y Gaston) The menu was quite literally the strangest menu I have ever seen--no starters, for example. We assumed, then, that we would be getting gifts from the chef, as...More

Chicha is a chain of upscale restaurants in Peru. Cusco has one too. They are all somewhat similar in the menu except each one features local foods. The one in Arequipa is directly across the street from the Monastery de Catalina (which is a MUST...More

Our last night in Peru we decided to go to what is locally described as one of the "best places" - but it was a huge disappointment. My friend ordered the ceviche, which came laden with corriander, which she doesn't like but wasn't included in...More

Returning to Arequipa, our first restaurant choice was ChiCha, where we'd had a wonderful experience 2 years ago. I think perhaps because we were dining later this time, we did not receive the wonderful service that we had before. Also, I wonder if our server...More

Sitting outside in the courtyard is very pleasant, even on a cool night it stays warm due to the heat lamps. The service was friendly, and relatively attentive. I only tried one dish, the Rocoto Relleno, but it was amazing! I decided to go to...More
