Superb food and service. Ceviche was as good as in Lima, as were papa a la huancaina and causa de camaorones. Delicious!

Like so many others have posted here - we tried this restaurant based on reviews we found in here and it did not disappoint! In fact, absolutely our best meal in Ecuador so far, and we have travelled extensively throughout this country. My husband and...I are "foodies" with a background in the restaurant business, so our standards are high. We had the Tiradito appetizer and the Green Curry with Shrimp for our main. Each dish was delicious! Layers of flavour; perfectly cooked, nice balance with the sides; curry had a bite but did not assault the tastebuds. This restaurant is an absolute gem in the minefield of Montanita (which is mostly a sea of loud cheap bars and crappy fast food). GO!More

I saw this was the #1 restaurant in Montañita and coming from NYC one of the food capitals of the world I came with big expectations and it did not disappoint! Everything from the ceviche to the pisco sours were amazing. Most of all it...was special to share a meal with my family who lives here in Manabi and tasting Peruvian cuisine for the first time as we celebrate my send off to Peru, my next travel destination. The service was also impeccable btw, what a great group of people running the show. Two thumbs way up!More

We had dinner here and it was the best meal that I had during my whole time in Ecuador. I had the coconut Thai corvina special which was only $10. It came with a huge filet of fish served with a coconut Thai sauce, served...with pantones, rice and a salad. The others in the group had the camarones y pescado ceviches, the Asia stir fry, and the bass with red sauce. I would definitely come here again and highly recommend.More

We ate cena at Tambo 3 times in 10 days - it was the best food in Montañita! Would have eaten there more but we were trying different restaurants. The food was excellent - there were several dishes I didn't get to try, but the...ones I did were great! Don't miss the ceviche - it is fixed differently than other restaurants. All the fish and stir-fry dishes are great. The staff was very friendly, and the drinkmixer is reputed to be the best in Montañita.More

Dear Ryan & Glenn, thanks for your interest! Our seafood dishes apart from the Jalea marina and mixed cebiche contain calamari but we do not serve the fried calamari..We hope to see you anyway!
