This place was good - the cevich eportions were small for the price. A junior portion was about $4.50 and the regular was $9.50. It comes with pop corn and plantain chips. The arrow mixto was good, the portion for the price was great. We got the junior and the portion was large, I'd highly recommend that dish. It comes... More

I love their ceviche and their grilled shrimp but I don't understand why they close at 4:30. I got there right at 4:30 not knowing this, needed a little snack before a late dinner and was so disappointed.

If you want to try real ceviches or food from the coast this is definitely not the place to do it. It's a bad version of a fast food restaurant for this kind of food being expensive as S*^t and quality not even at a 5 on a 10 scale...

Good food, but its actually insane to pay that amount of money per person. Service is not the best, timing was good.

The food in this place is awsome! The cebiche is wonderfull and the other plates are amazing, but the people that serve the food in the malls is angry and look tired. Have patience because the plates come a little late but worth the wait.

Great choice of cebiviche (or cebiche, both are accepted): shrimps, fish, squid or shells. This is the classic place to eat or (even better) to order typical Ecuadorian seafood. I personally like the shrimp ceviche, but all are good. The restaurant, which has now ten outlets, has also grown its menu, that now includes large dishes such as "arroz marinero"... More

The seafood is super delicious. This place is packed at lunch time and is open 24 hours. We went for lunch. You order and pay then sit down and wait for the food to arrive. Try the grilled clams, unique, and super delicious. All the ceviches we tried were made with fresh seafood. Walk to the Santa Barbara church in... More

We ate at this restaurant after our city tour since our guide recommended it as the best seafood in Quito. We were not disappointed with the food however the place itself is not very nice. As a tourist I would have paid a premium to have a better view or ambience. Try the rice with seafood. Cebiches are not that... More
