Excellent food and service. Wish my stomach was bigger so I could eat more. Franklin is an amazing chef and super kind. The photo shows how much I loved the food. When I come back, I’m eating here again.

Just visited Guadelajara Tacos & Grill in Montañita with the family. The choice of dishes is limited and we had 3 different dishes which were all amazing. The chef, annex waiter is super friendly and made us feel most welcome. Portions are more than enough....I would recommend the Californian Burrito or the Enchiladas. Be careful with the spicy sauce as it is truly very spicy. The place only holds a few tables as it is a 1-man restaurant but do not be hold back by that. We only had difficulties finding the restaurant as it is in a different street than was indicated (you can find it in Guido Chiriboga street) Will certainly try this one again; highly recommended.More

we enjoyed a very tasty dinner of enchiladas and tacos. they were very tasty good sized portions. The service was friendly and added to the experience. It was the best meal we had during our stay in Montanita. It was also one of the most...inexpensive. Like many places here it is cash only so make sure to have some set aside because you really want to try this place. Dinner for 2 under $20.More

Had an amazing dinner over here with my wife. Preparations were quick and the beer was proper cold, just as we like it. The Taco’s and Fajita’s were the best I ever had. We were given proper warning that the hot sauce was ‘super picante’,...which it was indeed, so we could use just the right amount! Great experience, will go again!More

My husband and I visited here, and hands down was the best food experience we had in Montanita. At first we were hesitant because as gringos our eating schedule is far from the norm here in Ecuador, the place was empty! So glad we didn't...turn away! This is obviously a family run business, and the son wasn't as versed In English, so he had his Dad come help us. They let us know what items they had available, and we selected from that. Both Father and son went to work preparing our meal. Tortillas from scratch, clear down to the corn they ground to get the maze. The best way to describe our experience is to say this is something you would witness sitting in your Uncles kitchen while he makes some tasty food for you. It was refreshing, comforting, and beyond delicious. Half way into our meal, the masses started flooding in to get their table. You must eat here when in Montanita!More

Mexican food is rare in Ecuador and this is an oasis in the desert. Excellent tacos and enchiladas. Plus the salsa picante is super hot and flavorful. Highly recommend.

Great food at decent prices. I highly recommend the burrito - it hit the spot! Ingredient ratio, flavors, portion size and mouth feel of the burrito were all on pointe! I also had cantaloupe juice - which is a first and it was super yummy.

I'm a California white boy that grew up on taco truck and chips and salsa and this Mexican food is the best I've had in years. It really is a must have, their California burrito and enchiladas are both 6 out of 5 stars. Go...here trust me IF YOUR IN ECUADOR AND LIKE MEXICAN FOOD GO HERE!!! PLUS THE TOWN IS AWESOME TOO.More
