Wandered into the Bellavista location this past Sunday afternoon for a tasty lunch. Basic Ecuadorian food. Nicely served in a casual outdoor setting. Not quite ‘fast food ‘ but certainly an efficient team. Good value for the price! Thumbs up.

I love their Corvina! I also like that I was able to get what I wanted and nothing more, so no food was wasted. Is considered a fast-food place but the food is very good. Kids waiting on us are friendly too.

Nothing wrong with this little seafood cafe near the main plaza. Amazingly friendly service. Big portions of fish in the ceviche. Pan-fried corvina done well, accompanied by a big mound of perfectly cooked, seaoned rice. The food comes fast. The prices are wallet friendly.
