Asked for something special and was not disappointed. Absolutely amazing. Diced steak served with rice, salad and a yellow vegetable looking like a banana, seasoned with south american herbs. Really great! All for just £8. Service very south american, relaxed and chilled :)

Don't judge a book by its cover. This restaurant may look a little bland from the outside but the service and the food is far from it. It's good value for money and you get big portions. I wouldn't say everything on the menu is...More

Really like this "Quito corner" close to Islington. Not pretentious, rather the opposite, cheap for London standards, and, let me tell you, very good. The cuisine is Ecuadorian: empanadas and yucca as entries, generous meat dishes as a main. I had a pork steak with...More

Really lovely buzzy, bustly Ecuadorian restaurant with smiley enthusiastic staff who are always willing to help. The owner is a really friendly guy and will resolve any issue immediately without fuss. House red was a smooth light Montepulciano which topped off a great MEATY lunch....More

I popped in for a coffee and an escalope salad before a meeting. The food and the coffee were very good and the Latin American music was just right. It's a really welcoming place which also has seating outside. The staff were great - welcoming...More

Super simple South American restaurant with a good selection of Ecuadorian food. We went on a night that big South American national teams were playing. Great atmosphere and nice staff, good food and beer. And it's on Holloway Road... Recommend highly
