  • The waiter Jose was amazing and attentive. The food was delicious better than in U.K the meat is very well cooked to your liking. Returning again to night!!!😀 the drinks so many options and yummy
  • A great find! May be the only high end, Peruvian goods shops in Arequipa (the tourist office did not know of other such places.) Great place to buy gifts for loved ones back home. Very good (and quiet) restaurant on the second floor also.
  • Grill restaurant in a shopping center. You get here is great value for money. The Imperial grill is adequate, there is a lot of meat on and all for less than 95 soles vpor 2 people.

Where to stay in Arequipa

Most accommodations in Arequipa cluster on the east side of the Chili River. The historical center offers the best selection of options, with plenty of budget hostels and mid-range hotels scattered throughout its streets. For something quieter, look north to the neighborhoods of Zemanat and San Jacinto. If you're looking for a suburban experience, stay in the western neighborhood of Yanahuara.
