I'm not sure about that big "Pizza" sign and the mixed reviews, but honestly, I didn't come to Ecuador to have pizza. We opted for a traditional meal instead - arroz con pollo (chicken with rice). It was delicious and exactly as we expected. We enjoyed being seated in this open-air restaurant which is located on an active intersection in the heart of town. It is full of activity around you, including the cute little neighborhood train that passes by with families and children on board.

This place is located on a busy intersection therefore always full. We had for luch burgers with fries. Burgers OK but fries were raw and cold. Very nice fresh juice selection.I recommend lime juice. Friendly staff. Great prices- 5usd for a burger.

We decided to eat lunch here based on the amount of people eating in the restaurant. They have a nice menu with quite a lot of variety to choose from. At our table we ordered the caprese salad, tuna, and shrimp cooked in a garlic wine sauce. The portions are good, as well as the food, but the service was lacking. It took us over 30 minutes, after we ordered, to receive our food. Also, we ordered another beverage and they never brought it. Should you go, do not expect to be in a rush to eat, otherwise choose another restaurant. But if you want good food and do not care how long it takes for your meal to arrive, this is a really good place. And on another note, the prices here are really good.

Loved the french toast and bacon. The french toast had a cinnamon flavor that made it taste so good!

I don't generally eat pizza, as so many places do it wrong. Thick bread-like base, cold toppings. But we were starving when we arrived at Santa Cruz and I had just a small basic pizza with Tuna and it was absolutely perfect. Wonderful thin base, covered in tomato sauce then full of tuna and cheese, with as much chilli and parmesan as you can handle. We've been back twice already for more. They do lots of other stuff too, but I can't stop eating the pizza... Maybe not the place to go on a cold day as its open to the elements, but its always so mild here, it makes it even better. Absolutely on par with the best pizza I've ever eaten.
