To start I ordered an octopus dish, overall a good combination with the local bean salad, but I felt octopus could have more flavorful. Main dish, was ok, but I could not taste bone marrow in the sauce, this was a brisket with yuca gnocchi which were good but not out of this world. Service was attentive but very slow.... More

I have had several experiences in Esperanto, an all of them have been personal and special. My meal delicious and have loved the ambiance. When asked where to go on a date night, Esperanto is my first choice.

I have to say that the whole experience is great: delicious gourmet fusion food, Salvadorian haute cuisine, combination of local and international ingreddients turn out to be fantastic ideas. The service is great from beginning to end, and if you... More

This is exactly the type of restaurant that is pretty, well decorated, nice in every way.... So, you would expect the same about their food.... WRONG ! It is more of the same, with a high tag price. Please: offer me something else but grilled salmón? apple pie? Caprese Salad? tiramisu ? Come on ! Be more creative! You can... More

Food is a creative design of flavors, combinations of salvadorian traditional food with gourmet elements build a very interesting short menu, I loved the strong ethnic components like cilantro. All the food is tasty, well prepared and well presented. Great location between Col. Escalon and San Benito. Has a nice terrace (outdoor seating) and small rooms for private dining. Good... More

Have eaten here at least three times over the last year, and I've found it to be sometimes spectacular, always creative, and sometimes just off. At least they are pushing the boundaries of cuisine in San Salvador. Sometimes they just don't quite make it, but it's still worth the risk.
