You get to choose three different types of meat, which they bring sizzling on a hot stone so it continues to cook in front of you. Sure it's a gimmick, but it's fun, and the meat is delicious.

The presentation of the choice of meats on a hot plate was novel at Zig Zag. The meats were fresh done just right and the taste of the meat was excellent. There was a good selection of wine with reasonable price. The environment of the...More

Definitely one to book ahead for, the hot stone is a great way to try different meats and have them cooked to your choice. Don’t be fooled by the sides, 2 people only need to share one (the mash is delicious) The meat was excellent,...More

We came here for lunch without reservation and was seated right away. Beautiful restaurant, good food on volcanic stone, they give you a paper bib because the volcanic stone creates splatters! So make sure you wear those paper bibs! I wish there’s more flavor on...More

My girlfriend and I went here for dinner. I’d heard excellent things, and we were very excited to try it. Her gnocchi was incredible, and I got the volcano with alpaca, beef, and lamb. The service was excellent, and the staff was very friendly. However,...More

This restaurant had American-style prices for a fancy French dining vibe. I feel like I paid 30-40 soles for entrees ($9-$13), added on sides and drinks, and left with an amazing dining experience. One of my favorite restaurants in all of Peru. When I was...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.
