Great sample of Ecuadorian food from both the coast and the Andes. You have ceviches that you won't taste anywhere else. Service is excellent, good ambiance and great location

The food was not at all what I expected, I did not like it at all! I was there with a group of 7 people, none of us were satisfied with our dishes. To top it off, the bill was astronomical! I do not recommend this restaurant.

Business lunch with foreign visitor. First time to the new place at Avenida Amazonas. Terribly slow service, specially for a weekday in an almost empty place. Average food quality and main course serving size of fried calamari looked more like appetizer (very small). Maybe not going back.

The new place is located in a beautiful setting of a historic house, the decoration is really great, and the food is very exquisite. Service as always is superb, and the chef is really good. Their specials are yummy, we ordered sangria which was really good. Very recommended.

I was delighted to come back to BARLOVENTO, the Cebiche raw fish on cooked in lemon, and the seafood rice...complete with 5 kinds of seafood. Tip ask one dish of rice for two. A little expensive but the neatness and hospitality are worth it. Enjoy.

I went to Barlovento while in Ecuador with my family and everyone enjoyed the customer service and the food was outstanding! Personally I think my shrimp and fish ceviche was delicious. Best ceviche ever! Thank you!
