Location and contact

There is no better place to recharge your batteries every day of the week with the flavor of the Ecuadorian coast. Here, you can find a light breakfast to one that make you feel like Popeye. Furthermore you will find a wonderful menu with entrees, appetizers and desserts with a system that strangely enough, strives for excellence in service time, because we know that time is money and hunger does not wait! Our 30 years in the market will ensure quality, price and above all the attention you deserve. Do not hesitate to visit us and taste our dishes especially created by LEO (chain owner & Cheff), with a touch and difference that motivate you to return again and again.

We had Leo's ceviche which was really delicious. The restaurant was well attended by lots of locals and the host was a very nice man. The prices were a little higher than other spots but we were very happy with our meal.
