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

We had a very good rocotto relleno and some fish - all very good but nothing out of this world. Friendly service, interesting location with some views and a pleasant garden make this a 4 out 5 place for us though.

My daughter and I just had a delicious lunch in this lovely restaurant that we stumbled upon while visiting the mirador in Yanahuara. If you love seafood, this place has a wonderful variety. You can also try traditional Peruvian dishes that incorporate seafood such as causa. We ate in the garden, which had a lovely fountain and beautiful bougainvillea on... More

I have eaten here twice now with my Peruvian friends. The food is wonderful, the location is fantastic, and now I am not in Arequipa any more, I'm saddened to not be able to pop in. An absolute must try is: conchitas a la parmesana (beautifully cooked scallops in a light sauce with a crispy and flaverful layer of parmesan... More

Have been living in Arequipa since March and have spent many Sunday afternoons in the garden of Tio Dario enjoying good pisco sours and good food from a varied menu.

The food was fresh and ok, but nothing spectacular. The sight is good on volcano El Misti and it is a nice and quiet Environment, and 1min walk to el Mirador de Yahanuara. Service was very much depending on your waiter. We were there with Kids, and they did not have any playground like La Tradicion Arequipena.

When you visit a restaurant 4 times in 2 visits to a city, it's got to be pretty good! El Tio Dario is tucked away behind Mirador Yanahuara, and has a fantastic selection of seafood and the best dish? Takuyaki - their version of the Peruvian Tacu tacu. It is quite unlike anything I've had in 1 year of trave... More
