Mama Clorinda's was delicious! They serve comidas tipicas (local food) and the selection was HUGE. Everything was wonderful, the service was great and the location in Plaza Foche was lovely. Prices were reasonable as well. Don't miss!

Our local Quite-based guide recommended Mama Clorinda as a good safe place to go eat regular Ecuadorian food. Nothing fancy. A group of 6 of us went to the restaurant one night (it wasn't night when we started, so make sure you have a good...More
