My wife and I were recently in Baños, Ecuador and stumbled upon this great little Tapas restaurant. The proprietor is a Spaniard who spent his life in the hospitality industry and it shows. The décor was nice, with a Spanish theme of course, there was smooth jazz on the sound system, and the Tapas were excellent—as good as we’ve had in Spain and elsewhere. The prices were quite reasonable as well. A real find.

Well, it may look like a hole in the wall, but the food is very good. Many guests came because tasca ranks number 1 on tripadvisor, and the owner did not even know. Intimate, small, good music, fab food.

Great little restaurant, more about it than many in Banos. Tapas was good, Corquettes were the stand out dish for us. Very enjoyable and a lovely host.

Little restaurant with only five or six tables with very good service and food.
The owner is helping the clients and serving the food and that is always good.
The prices are very convenient, we had dinner for two ordering different "tapas" and pay Usd 24.00.
The Albondigas are great.

The food scene in Banos is pretty same-same so it was fantastic to stumble across this Spanish restaurant with authentic tapas and evident attention to detail. Wine is good and generous, and the albondigas (meatballs) and calamari were perfectly cooked. It is probably the best restaurant in Banos.
