A pleasant villa in the valley with a lot of good meat dishes, not much for vegetarians. Outdoor garden seating. German beer.

Excellent restaurant. Very much hidden and difficult to find, but persevere, you will not be disappointed. This is Ecuadorian German cooking at its best. The salad starter is just great, and the main courses are wonderful.

We went to Mucki's, a dream of an Ecuadorian restaurant that was every quaint and charming spot you could ever want it to be. The twist? German owners! The... More

Had a business lunch here. Its an outdoor/indoor restaurant. Middle of nowhere. German/Ecuadorian restaurant. Opened with sausages which are made there. Very good. Had the giant prawns with garlic - excellent. Service was great. Great beer. We had a great time - party of 8 - big table no problem. They have these refrigerators from the 1960s that are used...
