Description: We are a restaurant with Colombian and international dishes fused with the fruits of the Ecuadorian sea with a capacity for 30 people in a rustic place with outdoor tables something out of the ordinary
Reviewed April 1, 2013

Our party had the typical Colombian dishes: arepa (a type of tortilla) with shrimp and squid; pisa'o mixte served on a dish made of plantains, and the arepa with beef which was very chewy -- beef is not a specialty here. Everything was delicious (the beef tasted good) and the beer was cold. We had dinner in the back of the restaurant, which is hotter that the tables facing the square. Dinner for four came to $50.

Note: When we went back a second time for a coffee in the afternoon, the cappucino was excellent, but the regular black coffee was undrinkable--it tasted like soap. When we pointed out the terrible taste, they did nothing to correct the situation. It put a damper on our original positive feelings about the place.

We ate lunch here 4-5 times. Loved the maize pancakes, the shrimp crepes, and the chicken brochettes. They have the coldest beer in town. Friendly service & many of the staff speak passable English.

Interesting and tasty Colombian food in shady cafe close to the beach. Opens at 12.30 ish but a good place to have a beer if you want to avoid the beach hut musica cacophony.

We had some great Colombian fare here. Creatively cooked and presented it was very reasonably priced and tasted awesome. As a veggie mine was a perfect blend and Simons Chicken was tasty and satisfying, even if he could have eaten more!!!!
Quirky restaurant, prime location, clean, helpful and very friendly.

Good, healthy food ( as in very clean compared to average puerto lopez restaurants ), good service. While eating we caught a wiff of what smelled like sewer fumes...not the restaurants fault though, I think they were working in the sewer system in the town itself
