Our group rarely left the comfortable lounge-booths of this beachside bar-restaurant. Food was delicious, uncomplicated fare -- fried fish and burgers, salads, ceviche, some traditional Ecuadorian and Peruvian dishes. We ate here three meals a day for two days and everything was delicious. I wish I was sitting there with a Corona right now.

The restaurant is literally right on the beach! It is a little bit more expensive but the food is consistently good and you can't beat the view. You cannot be in a hurry because they do take care with the food and beverage and presentation is important to them - so it take a little time. Order a couple of... More

OK food and service. Very expensive for Montanita. Better hoices with better food at cheaper prices. For the traveler playing it safe who does want to experience Ecuador.

Ate here every day for a week and never had a bad meal. The Peruvian chefs create tasty dishes with attention to flavour and excellent portions. Best meals in Ecuador!

This is a really nice place to enjoy Montanita even more. Food and drinks are delicious, service is very nice, music is pleasant and the view is just amazing, especially during sunset. They have really good naturally gluten-free options, although we should always ask about wheat and barley use in sauces, etc. I had a nice Pulpo al Ajillo and... More
