Get the ceviche with is excellent. Wash it down with their really good sangria. Also a great place to go for coffee and empanadas!

We went here because someone told us they had the best Calamari, period. Well, our luck they did not have the Calamari that evening. However, we had shrimp and trout. When we order the waiter told us it would be a bit since everything is fresh and it is not prepared and cooked until ordered. How refreshing! In the meantime... More

This restaurant majors on seafood. I have often eaten here, with many different people, and everyone has always thoroughly enjoyed their meal. The patacones are some of the best in I have ever had in Ecuador. They sell Tarapaca wine at just $18.00 per bottle, which is very reasonable for what is a good quality wine. Be patient. All food...

After a busy day of shopping and visiting Laguna Cuicocha, my friends and I were starved. The hotel recommended this restaurant, as did my friend's guidebook. We all had seafood, nobody got sick (a first eating seafood in Ecuador for me), and the trout with garlic sauce was delicious. The juice was fresh, my friends loved their wine, and the... More

This was so disappointing. We had read a good review elsewhere and we're looking forward to great seafood. The restaurant on a Thursday evening was almost empty. We ordered a seabass with garlic sauce and a fish casserole. The seabass when it arrived looked like it had been taken out of a John West frozen foods packet and was covered... More

We were staying at the Dona Esther, around the corner, and my girlfriend wanted pizza, but I insisted that we should try the seafood restaurant around the corner, so we ventured out to Quino. The ceviche mixto was fantastic. My girlfriend had read that the arroz con camerones was good, so she ordered that... It was excellent too. I was... More

A hidden nook, keep your eye out for the wooden sign outside the door. This family-operated restaurant is modest inside, but the food is high quality, abundant, and even a vegetarian (like me) can eat well here.

It was a quiet night and we worried a little that maybe we weren't in the right place but when the food came, all the doubts went away. Great ceviche and shrimp and other fish dishes. Definitely worth dropping by.

The only night we were in Otavalo we ate in Quino on recommondation of the people of our hotel. We arrived late at night so we were almost alone. Seen the late hour we ordered something small but had to wait quite a while. Not that it bothered us. The food was very good. The waiter was very friendly though.... More
