We came at lunch time for a lovely meal with our daughter and grandchildren. Service was quick, food was delicious. Enjoyed 150g peppered steak with chips and vegetables. Could have done with a bit more sauce. Desert chosen was fresh strawberries and cream!

I would say the place is OK, but I don´t understand why it is too crowed. The service is poor and the food is OK, nothing extraordinary. I would defenetly say it overrated! And if you go with no reservation you need to waitttttttt.

A place full of energy, delicious Ecuadorian food, fresh dishes and nice people around. Wild brunch, surrounded by wonderful mountains and green fields. Special traditional meals at lunch and dinner and fantastic vegetarian dishes. We have FOUR branches with the same quality and warmth.
