Tarija Restaurants

follow us

The quality of food in Tarija is excellent, with meat definitely being the main forte. The variety of the food isn’t so great but there’s more than enough to keep you happily fed for a few days. Churrasqueria and Cabaña restaurants serve up great slabs of meat cooked on the grill and can be found all over town. Be sure to try the local fish variety sabalo and crunch your way through some cangrejos, small river crabs, which are a local specialty.


In and around Plaza Sucre you’ll find plenty of ice-cream stalls, pizza joints and cafés. There are also a couple of places selling international cuisine including Thai and Mediterranean. The Mercado Central is a great place to sample local dishes including saice (mincemeat, chickpeas, potatoes and aji spicy sauce) and sopa de maní. There’s also a mouth-watering bread and cake section on the south-side of the market. Lastly, don’t forget to sample one of the wines made in the Tarijan Valley and some of the locally produced Serrano ham.
