Been here countless times, and I always make it a point to eat here whenever I'm in Minneapolis. Amazing food, good service, outdoor seating available in the warmer months. There is a tiny parking lot, but lots of street parking around. Don't miss out on...the empanadas or yucas fritas for starters.More

Every time we head down Central Ave we end up at Holy Land, which we love, but we've always wanted to get out of that rut since there are so many other interesting looking places along that stretch. We finally tried Chimborazo and found a...winner! We had the Churrasco and the Vegetarian Saltado. Both were fantastic, as were the Yuca Fritas. There was a line for outdoor seating, and we decided to dine indoors. It was quite hot inside but otherwise pleasant and charming place. We will definitely be back!!More

We went on a lovely summer evening and sat outside. It was Monday and the place was busy, which says something about the quality of food etc. hard to choose what to eat, even though the menu is not huge. Everything was delicious, what a...pity though no room for dessert! The vegetarian salad was big enough to need a take home box, the chicken was delicious. And the Mano drink went down a treat- twice. Small but adequate drinks choice,More

I love this place. One of those restaurants where you feel honored to get to have access to the flavor and want to try every dish. I’ve had take out from here a couple of times and just had my first dine in experience since...the pandemic and it was a very warm environment. Enjoyed eating there with a friend and getting take out with my partner. Would be really good for a “parent’s in town” kind of meal too! Seco de Carne and Churrasco are awesome! Also stellar tres leches.More

We were looking for a breakfast on our way out of Minneapolis on a Sunday morning. Found this place on the Internet and decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed! The service was great! We shared a dish of Potato pancakes (Llapingachos),...eggs, roast pork, toast all with an amazing peanut sauce and delicious coffee. This is a hidden gem!More

I almost hesitate to write this as I want to keep the ability to walk in without overcrowding a delightful culinary secret. But, loving the waitstaff - you can tell they love their work and the restaurant reflected in the way they care for the...clientele - combined with the food, oh my! The dishes are delicious and ample. The Chaulafan - think fried rice street food Ecuadorian style with pork, chicken, shrimp and eggs is to die for, The shrimp ceviche - oh yum. Beef empanadas have chunks of beef vs ground beef. All so delicious much of which is served with two amazing sauces - always order additional sauces, always! Tuesdays are half priced wines with a decent selection of inexpensive South Americans. I cannot speak to the "authenticity", but heck who cares when the experience and food are simply wonderful.More

Wait staff was top notch - friendly, attentive, and kind. We ordered the Empanada De Carne as an appetizer to share. Definitely recommend. The Saltado was terrifically flavorful. We also had fun trying out the Chica Morada. The Milanesa de Pollo was disappointing - not...bad - but not something we would order again as there are better options available.More

Tried out this restaurant for a recent business lunch and wasn't disappointed. Outside seating area under a big tent. Friendly service. Nice menu with a good variety of options. Appetizer and entree were both very tasty. I'd return here.

As an Ecuadorian i can say that this food has no point of comparison to the actual Ecuadorian food, the food did not have any taste the presentation of the food was not good at all and the price that we paid was expensive for...the type of food that we received.More

Little hole in the wall with a amazing authentic home cooked Ecuadorian food. After at least 20 visits I have rarely been disappointed to any degree. My favorite is their Chalufan. Fried rice with home made pork, chicken and large shrimp. Also their potato pancakes...are to die for! Must stop in NE Minneapolis.More

Excellent service with authentic meals! We went at 9pm and had to wait to be seated. We knew we were in for a treat! Affordable and delicious. I can't recommend just one thing because everything was great. Go hungry!
