This is a nice restaurant at the upper level of a small shopping centre in the main shopping street in Arequipa. The restaurant is decorated with local art. The food was very good, portions generous and it was resonably priced.

Top quality arts and crafts from the best artists in the country, thus is a must-go shopping mall very close to the cathedral.

We chose one of the platters for 2 people for around 96 Soles. As you can imagine it was plenty of meat, some veggies and salsas. Well seasoned meat (pork, beef, chicken). For my taste a bit too salty but that's subjective! The restaurant is in the middle of a shopping center so not the greatest atmosphere. 10 soles for... More

We ordered to different lomo steak meals and the meat was super tender and juicy! We asked medium and it was exactly medium! Really recommend if you want a good steak.
