Good Beef

A huge very rustic restaurant - half open air - offering typical food from Santa Cruz and Province. I had this big sirlon steak which was cooked to the point accompanied by rice, sweet plantains and fries. The service is pretty fast for the size of this place.

Delicious milanesa--both beef and chicken. Also wonderful majao and mocochinci. It offered a wonderful meal that wasn't tailored to tourists, so the menu featured many traditional dishes.

Have been coming here for about 10 years now and it is still without a doubt the best for local fare. Truly not to be missed.

This is by no means the best restaurant in Santa Cruz. The food is quite average, and you will find better (prepared) meat elsewhere. However, it is good value and has loads of charm. A nice place to bring friends for a night out!

I have been here almost since it began operating years ago...back then it was a small place with a thatch roof...the menu was and continues to be a great way to sample local fare. Good value and excellent offerings. We had the sampler for three people and it was a lot more food than we could eat...all delicious.

We're out here for lunch with office friends, I am a veggie so limited options for veggie but I could see it from my friends that the food was excellent. I could get some rice, vegetables and banana fritters, but my friends were having a great time. The food is very special for it's local flavors. The seating arrangements are... More

Went there during my stay in Santa Cruz with local friends. Food seems to be fresh and it was quite nice in most of the cases :) Some things were not very tasty for my European mouth :) Overall I would recommend this place if you looking for local flavours and dishes.

My girlfriend and I arrived there at 7 pm when it still was quite and clients did not seem to be tourists. Service was quick, food was delivered exteremly fast and presented very nicely. The meats were prepared in a delicious way, but sides were kind of standard except for 1 or 2 (out of 5). Prices were fair, assuming... More

I stopped by Casa del Camba for lunch during a work day, yet the place was packed: business men, couples, families. The food was quite tasty - they have a few sampling items which allow you to taste a few local dishes at once. Don't be misguided by the platters apparently-small size: the servings are quite fulfilling!

I went here with a friend and we got a dinner for two. It was an assortment of different meats on a grill that they brought to the table. They had a couple of good pieces of steak and chicken the rest were different organs. There were a couple of sides of rice, potatoes and plantains. Overall the food was... More
