We tried the almuerzo and arrived late. The restaurant was listed as one of the good place in our guide (Le Petit Fute (French)). The place is actually very good and service is great. I was impressed of having a 8USD bill at the end for the quality and quantity of the food. Their homemade rose icecream for desert was... More

We noticed the sign in front which promised an original dining experience, and decided to return for dinner. When we arrived, we were greeted by our host Carlos, who quickly made us feel at home and seated us near a window. We looked over the menu and decided upon the special house salad, which included jicama, dates and a light... More

We had a wonderful dinner yesterday, we loved every bite and sip of it! I had the BBQ ribs, really beautiful meat with two different sauces and my husband also enjoyed his sea bass very much. Before that, we were served some interesting dips as an appetizer, which showed us already the great skills of the lady cook! The dessert... More

The ambience was very good and host very friendly. Food is mostly Ecuadorian and prepared well. Wine was cheap Chilean wine but drinkable. Pretty hefty check at the end for the good food. A little bit of gimmicky with the free wine with purchase of 3 meals. Worth a try if in area but would not go out of my... More

When we entered the restaurant they turned on the lights for us! We were the only guests this night and though the service was good the waiter was very reluctant to open any wines for us to purchase by the glass, consequently requiring us to by a bottle...interesting upsell technique. The food was a hodgepodge of ingredients not especially well... More

I went to this restaurant with some folks I met at my hostel. We had a great time. Our server, Adrian, was excellent. He was very accommodating to any request we had including an order of a custom salad that included anything that was green! A great evening!
