Very tasty food, great dinner!

Was taken here with some friends for my birthday for dinner. We all had something different, but everyone's meal was super! A fairly varied menu and the flavor was better than the average Ecuadorian fare. When we went to pay, because it was my birthday, I was given one of my margarita's on the... read more

Wow, I read about the restaurant in the lonely planet and as I passed by I asked for the menu. The menu of the day cost 8 US $, but it's worth every centavos ;-) I got first toasted corn with a good spicy tomato dip, then empanada, pineapple juice, potato-Soup with peas and carrots and sausage, followed by turkey-breast...

Went with a group of 7 for an evening meal. We all ordered different things and each of us really enjoyed our meals. Nice atmosphere and friendly service. We thought it was good value. Highly recommend for local food.

A good place to have lunch near the Market. We were there with a group and ordered ahead. The restaurant was prepared for us.

This restaurant was recommended to us by the Tourist Office. We had the Hornado once and I don't recall what else but everything was good, the place was clean, and it's close to the Market.

Interesting that the majority of people there were Ecuadorians. Good choice of food and pleasant atmosphere though by local prices, not particularly cheap. Local live music being played which added to the atmosphere. Seemed that by 9.15pm that we were the last customers and keeping the waiters holding on just for us - indeed true as two of the ladies...

As described, by the front door is another door on the right with a stall serving delicious rosted pork, so juicy and wonderful and CHEAP that I went twice. Their seating area is upstairs, it´s nothing special, the main event is the food and it´s probably only during the day. I´m sure the two are the same business because the... More

Cosy setting and lovely smiling staff but we were informed that there was no beef, trout or would you believe spaghetti available the evening we were there. MY husband had the pork - one piece tender and one like old boots. My chicken would have been OK if not smothered in a nasty garlic sauce- at least a tablespoon of... More
