“So delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

We ate here many times during our trip to Manta. They served the best Shrimp and Rice we had on our entire trip. The serving was large enough for two people. We always had the same server and he was great! Loved this place.

“Our favorite place for ceviche!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013

This place is always packed with local business people for lunch, and the reason is that the food is yummy. The service is also fast and friendly and our waiter spoke English (most don't here).

This place is just across the street from the fresh fish market in Tarqui, rather than in the tourist area. Definitely worth the $1 cab ride to get there!
