Very nice food

We were looking for nice seafood in Arequipa and were not disappointed with the serving size and the food quality. Certainly not the cheapest in town but if your in the area it's worth a try.

Always good. We go every year once or twice and choose different items. Plenty to pick from. We always prefer to sit outside in the garden. Service is excellent.

Nice place, great food. You can go with friends, family, but there aren't games for children. Sometimes you're going to be almost alone, once I went with a group of friends, we ate in the garden, flowers perfum the place, when it was almost night, we went inside.

We (two of us) each had pseudo - one fried with garlic and one with sauce. Mine with the sauce was very tasty but the plain fried fish came with three deep fried potatoes and was bland. The restaurant had nice furnishings and the service was very good, just no extras - veggies or bread before. Compared to other restaurants... More

The food is one of the best in Arequipa as well as the Pisco sour! We;ve discovered this place thru our friends who used to hang out here! We highly recommend it though the only thing is that this place is quite pricey compared to other restaurants in Arequipa so it's great to go here during special weekends but not... More

Somehow, my partner and I had the whole restaurant to ourselves, that fated Tuesday afternoon... The service was impeccable - the best I've experienced in Peru. The food? Incredible. We started with the Parmesan baked scallops - divine. Next were two servings of ceviche, each dish perfectly salted, seasoned, and marinated. We finished with a coconut flan for dessert. To... More

The menu offers a lot of very good fish dishes in a nice setting. We eat noodles with fish. The traditional causa stuffed with crabmeat. And a creols salad with fish and shrimps. All of them were very good.

As you walk down the traditional alley of Yanahuara, it would be easy to miss the entrance to El Tio Dario. But, behind the walls, there is a nice bar and beautiful dining room. If you continue to descend the stairs, you enter a lovely garden. The charm is that it is all so unexpected. We both ordered fish dishes,... More
