They make it very clear that they don't serve Jews. I am not Jewish but I found it shocking that in 2016 a restaurant would refuse an entire group of people based on policy they don't agree with. I recommend not eating here on moral...More

Good meat, odd menu of late but best steak in Banos. But I still hate that damn sign on the door. Yes, they are entitled to an opinion, but I don't eat there because of it.More

Don't let looks fool you... I Came here with some friends because it was close to the hotel, the place doesn't look that promising until the food arrives to your table. This is some very good argentinian steak-house with an ecuadorian touch!! 100% Recommended

I tried the vegetarian dish "parrila del jardin" - it was great. About eight different, fresh vegetables, prepared on the grill. I can highly recommend for all of those who like vegetarian food!

I had the chicken stuffed with wild mushrooms. So much salt I couldn't finish it. There was no tenderloin available so didn't have the option of the only steak on the menu except for the one in the combo meal. Service wasn't great , half...More

After trying it for the first time during a visit to Banos in 2009, I was hooked and Quilombo became my regular haunt for steak and wine in town. Interesting decor, good service, great selection of grilled meats and wines. The chef/owner seems like a...More
