The food was good and they had quite a few vegetarian options so I won't complain on that front. However, the service was not good. I went there on a Tuesday night and for some reason, the waiter forgot all our drinks and failed to disclose quite a few things about the dishes (like the fact that even if you order a dish with sauce but no veggies, they will bring both on the side). Also, the dishes are not big. They are good for a person or so and they are reasonably priced, so that is good, and they are also very local. If you go, hope you have a better experience than I did.

It was a rainy evening, but the food was tasty and adventurous. I enjoyed the Ecuadorean rice with shrimp! Friendly staff ordered a cab for us when we were finished. I would definitely return!

This restaurant was recommended by our Intrepid guide. It was reasonably priced but the food was not great. If you are from the US you would do a lot better to seek out the haute cuisine recommendations on trip advisor and pay for a cab (cabs are cheap but seat belts are not required and the traffic is harrowing.)

We arrived with 9 people and no reservation, the staff were able to quickly accommodate us. The menu is a typical Ecuadorean tourist selection, the mixed plates were good.

This restaurant serves very tasty typically Ecuadorian meals - the creviche was excellent with lots of shrimp and seafood. Fresh grilled fish with a nice salad was also excellent. We had a very helpful waiter - could not fault the service.
