Fodor's Expert Review Zig Zag Restaurant

$$ Arequipa French Fodor's Choice

Everything here—from its grand iron spiral staircase and sillar stone walls to its Novo Andino cuisine, extensive wine list, and decadent desserts—is done with exquisite detail and attention. See that spiral staircase? It was built by Gustave Eiffel. The menu, using a fusion of gourmet techniques from the Alps and Andes, is a harmonious mix of fresh local foods. Try the quinoa potato gnocchi (served with your own choice of mushroom or meat sauce), the meat fondue, or the notable Trios, a prime cut of three meats: alpaca, ostrich, and beef, slow-cooked and served on a hot stone with three dipping sauces. You'll want to make reservations, especially for dinner and, if you book ahead of time, you can reserve one of the romantic balcony nooks.
