the best service is here. The food is really good and i wish we found this place earlier. Really comfortable and a nice location. We had Quiua with Vegetables and the fish. Juices were the best we had, especially the coconut juice!

Went there for some juice, coffee and patacones and found the best patacones ever! Topped with cheese and cherry tomatoes. The place is clean, good service and fast wifi!

We were told to go to this restaurant by different persons and in fact we went twice so good it was. Very good food and good prices. Service was smily. The terrace is fresh and pleasant. Too bad that parents spend their time on their smart phones instead of taking care of their noisy children !!!

Chilled music, lovely staff and a small well executed menu - fresh tuna salad was very fresh & perfectly cooked. Owned by a very charming swiss Equadorian who clearly takes great pride in her restaurant

The service was great, stuff was really friendly. What I liked the most were the four different vegan options they had on their menu, really appreciated it! I had the quinoa with vegetables and was really happy to find something else and healthier than just rice with vegetables or the classical spaghetti al sugo.

The house was full and the team was a bit lost. However, the food is really great if you have the patience to wait.

This restaurant is owned by one of the local families. It has great ambience, long tables with a cozy feel. We enjoyed our meals greatly. The drinks were strong and delicious! We savored this last evening of our fabulous vacation!

The restaurant has a very laid back vibe, it was nice to hang out there. The food was descent. I ordered the Ecuadorean style steamed fish, it was tasty but over cooked for my taste. Two other friends loves their beef and fish dishes. The host was very sweet and the food came out at a reasonable time. They serve... More

Definitely worth a visit if you're in town. We went twice and on both occasions had great service good food and on the second visit a very good Caipirinha! Think this was our favourite of the 4 restaurants we ate at.
