El Tío Darío restaurant is located in the very centre of Arequipa's traditional suburb of Yanahuara, at just a few metres from the magnificent square. Here, one can enjoy a tasty lunch in the peaceful surroundings of our gardens where it's always springtime, while admiring a beautiful panorama of the White City's three volcanoes. Our cuisine is characterized by considerable culinary experience and expertise in the preparation of specialities from Arequipa and other regions of Peru. Fish and shellfish form the basis of our gastronomical concept; in preparing dishes, we give priority to the careful selection of ingredients from local suppliers as well as exclusive items from the country's Coast, Highlands and Jungle. We look forward to serving you soon and the chance to show you our warm and efficient hospitality...
