We went with a group of friends before going to the Galapagos and wanted good local style food. We were not disappointed and large portions to ensure we didn't leave hungry or disappointed!

I really recommend this restaurant, we've had such a lovely meal tonight in a great venue. Our waiter was so attentive, the food delicious. If you want a first class meal in first class surroundings make this restaurant your first choice.

I found this place to be an excellent way to experience Ecuadorian cuisine. I had the cerviche, and it was probably some of the best cerviche I have ever had! The staff were very welcoming and accommodating. I would eat here again.
