“Good gringo option”
Reviewed December 3, 2013

Tried this on my last night in Baños, with someone I met paragliding. I had avoided it as it is obviously gringo central, which is not my thing. Both of our meals were above average. My cocktails were OK, though not great. My companion liked her beers, though she wasn't overwhelmed.

Want to feel like you are in the US? A good option. Want an authentic Ecuador experience? Search elsewhere.

“Love the Stray Dog”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

It's a cool place to drink a few and has product from a microbrewery on the coast owned by a couple of Gringos. The owner is friendly and hardworking and manages to crank out good food which is an achievement to be proud of.

“A relief to drink good beer”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

As those travelling in Ecuador would know, the beer is average at best. It was so nice to enjoy a really good beer even if the price was a bit higher. The shredded pork burger was absolutely amazing too.
