This was a really fun and funky restaurant in the middle of tourist-friendly Casco Viejo. They may only have 25-30 seats, so we felt fortunate to get a table. We started with the fried pork, which paired nicely with the sweet potato, and with the duck with potato soufflé. Both were excellent. We also had gnocchi in a Gorgonzola cream... More

We loved the atmosphere of sitting outside. The food was OK, nothing special. Had a nice salad with figs, a mushroom crostini and two different types of pasta. The pasta was not very flavorful. Service was attentive. Enjoyed sitting in the square and watching the people. I do love the name of the place!

We spend one evening checking out the Casco Viejo and after reading some reviews came to Ego for dinner. My husband and I shared a few small plates and a salad. Everything was fantastic although the duck was not our favorite. Sangria by the pitcher was delicious as well.

My mom and I love a great salad and we came back twice to this restaurant located in Bolivar Plaza motivated by their well tossed greens. The first night we had an arugula salad with fresh figs, it was divine and it turned my mom into a lover of figs. We went back again the following night for that salad... More

If you are spending any time in Casco Viejo, you can't miss this spot! We went for lunch one day, and back again a few days later for dinner. The staff was friendly and helpful. The sangrias were the best we had on our 10 day trip, and the food was amazing! We particularly enjoyed the cerviche and fritters.

We went to this restaurant upon recommendation by the hotel and we sat outside across the road in the square. The envornment was great. The church was lit up beautifully and view around was good. The ceviche was good and the beef main was amazing. so tasty. would definately go back. excellent food.

Well worth seeking out. It's in Plaza Bolivar, with lots of tables outside. Service is good, servers speak English. Food is delicious, though a little on the pricey side.

There are several restaurants on the Plaza Bolivar. Ego is the most well-known. We had a pretty tasty meal, but the service was pretty slow and inattentive. They have a variety of pastas and fish dishes. It was a fine experience.

Ego y Naciso was my favourite restaurant on Plaza Bolivar. Great food and impeccable service. We thought it was the best, most sophisticated restaurant on the square.
