“Excellent local food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

This restaurant (don't be confused by the "heladeria" sign outside, meaning ice creams) is well located in the city center close to the San Agustin church. They serve excellent local food and very large dishes, so pay attention not ordering too much. I recommend to order different dishes and share!

“The ice cream was nothing special...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

We only came there to have some ice cream and although it is home made, we weren't really impressed. Prices were okay, the place was clean, and the staff were friendly.

“nice ice creams, decent lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Limited hours but generally friendly service, fantastic ice cream in a convenient old town location. Try the cinammon. Empanadas are recommended. Ceviche, for Ecuatorian standards, is fresh.

“Good Food If They are Open”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

We went there 3 times...

So because they have business hours doesn't mean they are actually open during those hours!!
And because they have a menu doesn't mean they have all the food. Even if it is 1 pm.

We never got to try the goat stew coz they were always out! but other things we tried were really good.

The food is definitely the best we had in our 2 week trip. In terms of taste and presentation it is in a whole different level compare to other restaurants.

But again, don't expect to get what you want even if they opened 1 hours ago.

“Yummy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

This Heladeria is well known and written up in just about every travel book and magazine available.
The food is great including many of the traditional Ecudorian plates as well as the ice cream. The atmosphere is lively with an excellent waitstaff.
