A familiar restaurant

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

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.

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.

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.

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
