“Overrated statements”
Reviewed 27 July 2012

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.

“Fantastic peruvian food in relaxed garden setting”
Reviewed 28 November 2011

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 lin South America. The ceviche is also very good - and pulpo en aceite de oliva (octopus in olive oil) delish also!

“Perfect”
Reviewed 19 November 2011

Great fish restaurant. Choice of indoor or outside. Good service, good prices. We had the piqueo for 4pax, delicious. Also the shrimp with garlic was a perfect dish, but we fell completely in love wit the dish with rice, beans and shrimp (tacu-tacu). Coming back for more.
