Just a little ways off the Main Street, this restaurant is the opposite direction of everything else. But the food was quite good. We walked right past it at first as its location is somewhat not obvious and feels more homey than commercial. Would definitely...More

My husband and I went here for lunch and were pleasantly surprised. The food was fresh, attractively presented and tasty. The service was so-so - friendly, but not attentive, which is the norm in South America. Desserts were delicious - save room!

Fried Bananas is a cozy restaurant with a casual and relaxed atmosphere, right next to the main tourist plaza in La Mariscal. Our prices are much lower than one would expect given the quality of the food and service. 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
