Good food, good service

We enjoyed this place. We visited in our honeymoon. We got the grilled meats for two. They staff was courteous. It was too expensive considering the place we were at and the type of food we got.

This place is owned or run by folks from Argentina and they are famous for their "parilladas" a grilled feast for two of filet, longaniza, chorizo (brats), chicken, and pork chops. This is served on a mini-grill with a carbon underneath to keep it warm while you devour this delicious amazing order. Served with a fantastic chimichurri sauce, stuffed potato,... More

Vast, high quality menu. Argentinas steaks are a steal at around $18 and chocolate fondue is a great idea when you fancy something sweet in this warm climate. Only complaint was that on both Saturday evenings when we visited there was a guy singing and playing the guitar. I found that his music wasn't upbeat enough for a Saturday night... More

Good menu selections and the food was excellent! We had a fish dish and shared a meat, poultry, fish platter that was so much food we couldn't finish it. Really good food!

We came here for dinner and ordered the mixed grill parilla for two. It came with beef, chicken, pork, sausage, shrimp, tuna filet & lobster. It also came with two different dipping sauces, one was like a chimichurri and the other barbecue like. The mixed grill also came with a salad with broccoli and asparagus in garlic butter sauce, delicious!... More

Visited here 2 nights whilst on a diving holiday with a group of 22. Food was fresh and plentiful -as were the cocktails! ! Service was friendly and staff were really professional and happy to help. Fresh fish and good quality cuts of meat. Reasonable prices too.

Food is okay and not a great selection to choose from. The service is very good and the atmosphere is great for a drink or to relax but the food is not the best in the area. I would go for a drink or to take a break but eat somewhere else.

Nice place to eat, but service was a little slow. One of our party's dinner was VERY slow in arriving, but the lobster ravioli tasted great

We visited here on our last night in Puerto Ayora and received the best service we have ever had anywhere in the world! This is especially commendable in Ecuador when the service in restaurants is generally at a poorer level than that in the UK, for example. When we got there the waiter put on a small standing fan for... More

Good burgers and wine. Nice setting and open all day, right on the main street. My friend had the steak and recommends it.
