A warm and friendly place that will go out of their way to make your dining experience special. A few blocks from the over priced eateries and worth the short walk

Local cuisine with some superb Italian dishes, as well. Unmistakable fresh taste to all the food, as well as, clever "chef touches" (e.g. saffron in the Alfredo sauce).

I loved my meal of trout with salad, fried banana, and yuca. I was also thrilled to find healthy chicken meals that my kids loved. Great restaurant. My seven year old son's review--"I loved my meal! It was grilled chicken."

We feature a variety of seafood, Ecuadorian specialties, grilled dishes, pasta, salads, vegetarian delights and more; all creatively prepared and as fresh as can be.You will want to be sure to save room for one of our signature desserts.I suggest checking out our website where you can browse the menu, read reviews and get more information about us.HOURS OF OPERATION: MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY 12:30-20:30 SATURDAY 12:30 16:30
