Good Place for a Good Steak

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... read more

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

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

We ate at different restaurants in Quito, very good ones. But when we came back from a 2 weeks cruise at the Galapagos islands, and had only one night left at Quito we chose "la casa de mi abuela". 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...

The reviews drew us here and we couldn't have picked a better place. Excellent service, reasonably priced and the steak Solomillo was fantastic. Cooked just the way we wanted. The other menu items looked equally enticing. Friendly, English speaking host.

As a missionary and global traveler this is one of the best steaks I've had the opportunity to try. Fantastic service and good value. If traveling to Quito, this is a must stop. By the way, ask for the queso y pan, terrific appetizer.

I' ve been going here since I was a kid. The ambient always reminds me of weekends visiting my grandparents house. The food has never changed, perfect as always, the Solomillo is my favourite dish, but I recommend everything. The prices are very reasonable, and they are worth every bite you take. So if you live here, or visiting Quito... More
