Good local choice of food

Interesting that the majority of people there were Ecuadorians. Good choice of food and pleasant atmosphere though by local prices, not particularly cheap.

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.

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

Came here for lunch and had the menu del dia which at $8 I initially thought was slightly pricey, but it was more than worth it. We shared one menu between two people and there was so much food we were both full. There were two starters, a delicious soup and a potatoe and veg croquette in a lovely sauce.... More

Daily Grind has been closed apparently for renovation, but I have just heard that it will be coming back in two weeks. Best coffee in Ecuador. Gringos can also get toasted bagel, fresh crepes and delicious cupcakes that are apparently hand made. But the coffee and espresso are reasons to stop by. It's right in the center of town on...

The staff was fabulous at this restaurant located close to the Plaza de Los Ponchos. The food was average and expensive but served in a nice atmosphere.

But mostly everything we asked for was "sold out". The service is very friendly and the place is nice - we will try again...

A little expensive but a very pleasant place with good food. $21 for 2 shrimp dishes and drinks. Locals were having a birthday party so a bit crowded. Very pleasant waitress patient with my poor Spanish.

We went to a weaver's shop and they showed us how weaving was done through time. This used authentic old fashion tools and machines. Then we got to shop all different items that looked to be of high quality.
