After experiencing other restaurants in the area and seeing the great value that was available I was rather taken aback by the prices at this place. Be prepared to spend a lot for your food. The food was good but everything was a la carte. Spent $150 for 8 of us While that sounds decent up in the states I... More

We tried the 'parrillada', the meat was Ok, but the cured meats were not the best. The view and location is good. A bit expensive for tha amount and quality of food, specially compared to other restaurants nearby and the service which is not the best.

We especially enjoyed the service. Very attentive and determined to get past the language barrier. The meat was delicious if slightly over cooked. The sausages were really tasty. The beef was ok but forgettable. No rice and beans, only French fries (Papa frites). The French fries were easily as good as any I have ever had. All in all A... More

As I get this isn't a pizza place. I was solo and with very limited Spanish. I didn't want to order a huge amount of food as I saw other tables getting, so I ordered a 1/4 pizza. Let's just say what they brought me no one would confuse that with pizza. The meats they were bringing out smelled great,... More

My husband was drawn to the outdoor drill. However, he felt like his chicken was half the size it should have been, and lacked flavour. The vegetarian meal I ate was also a small serving and lack any taste.

This place is an unassuming frontage with street venders bracketing both sides, the place could do with a lick of paint and the furniture has seen better days. When it comes to the food, they will tickle your taste buds and leave you wanting more. The food is traditional Ecuadorian, and that is supported by the high number of local... More

Our Spanish is limited but with the waiter's help & sign language we managed to order dinner. Our waiter was very attentive & friendly. The steak was magnificent & cooked on an open grill in just a few minutes. We even had some musical troubadours serenade us with beautiful music while we dined. The view from our sidewalk table was... More
