OVERPRICED, SALTY, GREASY, JUST PLAIN BAD. This is a really bad tourist trap. Just down the street are many much better restaurants. Have been there a few times just because it was open when nothing else was. It is not good.

The steak was tender and had a great mushroom sauce, not a tough steak as I was told was all you would find in Ecuador. Price and service were great. Will return when I have time.

A big menu featuring Italian and local fare. The restaurant is owned by a local and her American husband. Food is great, service is fast and the bar is usually busy on the weekends. A nice place to meet locals and visitors/expats alike.
