Hungry at lunchtime, and not willing to venture far from the hotel due to Carnaval shenanigans, we found Quilombo just up the street. It seemed inviting, so we decided to give it a try.

Don't go to that restaurant! The owners are racist, they hanged a sign in their entrance: "Israeli's are not alloud''. It reminds signs that were maid in Germany in the 1930s.

First off, the food in this place is fair for an Argentinian style restaurant. The $20, two-person special is a good deal and you do get a generous portion of each kind of meat and side items. However, we had to flag down service three times and the waitress "assumed" that the $60 given for the $41 bill included her... More

Raw chicken, couldn´t believe it... if you don´t want to get sick, i´d give this place a wide berth. I´m not a picky eater, but when i´m presented with raw chicken, i have a problem with that.

went to the restaurant and there was a sign at the entrance that Jewish people can't enter. JUST LIKE NAZI GERMANY. So I didn't enter.

This place is owned and operated by anti- Semites. There is a sign on the door saying no Jews or Israelis allowed in Anyone supporting this place is supporting racism, hatred and nazi lovers

We arrived for a late lunch, around 2pm. Despite the fact the restaurant was empty, it took 10 minutes to show us the menus. Ordering took another 10 minutes. Our food came reasonably fast, but I was still hungry after my meal, and when I tried to order roasted garden vegetables, they told me it would take too long and... More

I went to this place twice during a 6 day stay in Banos. This place features high quality beef, pork, and chicken cooked Argentine style. Most will go for the 2-person mixed grill, which is tenderloin, pork chops, chicken breast, and 3-4 types of sausages. This is a lot of food for $20. Really, 3 hungry people will be full... More

There is only a few places I have found in ecuador that doesn't flatten your steak. Good prices and what also doesn't happen much in ecuador is they asked me how I wanted it cooked. We were recommended this place by the owner of the arte cafe. And I'm glad we listened. I would return for they steak.

I went to this restaurant because of the good reviews in trip advisor but the experience was awful. The waiter was rude and the food disgusting. Don't waste your time and money.
