That's beef

Beef lovers will be happy though portions could be a little bit bigger. Do not ask for well done stake. It will come medium-rare or rare anyway.

Like many of this restaurant's reviewers, I went there for dinner due to the wonderful meals I had there (in my case, in the early 1980's) while a Peace Corps volunteer in Ecuador. Note to self: stop picking restaurants based only on nostalgia. We arrived at 8 pm on a Tuesday night and the door was locked. After knocking for... More

Food was good and prices reasonable as noted by others. However, we were the only ones in the restaurant on a Friday night and I thought that was odd.

This is a small place with an entrance in an alley I walked over to twice because of the great reviews. One time was a Thursday at dinnertime and it was closed. Okay, I went and ate at my hotel, the Hyatt. The next night, Friday, I had the concierge call over and no one answered. I walked the 2... More

Took my wife down here last weekend as it was her birthday and she is the steak eater in the family. The Solomino was very good and tender and did not disappoint. In Ecuador the steaks are often cooked to a well done and tough condition but this restaurant does not overcook in fact it undercooks. I ordered my steak... More

The steak Solomino was fantastic! Very humble atmosphere. Well worth the $13. One block from the Marriott. Best steaks.

The service is prompt and very friendly, the meat excellent and graet value. The only thing they could do bettet is... More

We ordered the house special for me and my wife.it was fabulous .it was a tenderloin cooked to perfection .One of the best steaks I have had. What it lacks in decor, it more than makes up with its food. Very reasonably priced.

My grandma's house did not disappoint! Small, nothing fancy type restaurant but very clean and with delicious food!! My bf and I decided to go after reading all the positive reviews and we were pleasantly surprised:) With a very small menu, I was concerned they wouldn't have any options for me since I'm vegetarian but when I told the server...
