Near our hotel, La Rabida , we ordered a parillada for two--mixed grill. It was fine, nothing spectacular--blood sausage, steak, chops etc. It came with baked potatoes. We had Ecuadorian beers which hit the spot. Very good service. Nice ambiance with large windows to look out on the streets.

El Arriero is a restaurant that is specialised in meat. The food is ok, but not that great. The prices are expensive. I think that there are better options in the same street.The service was very good!

Having said that, the food was of a good quality and served swiftly. Portions were good but not overfacing. Beers and wine were... More

It was cold and hard---sour cream on top. We called the waitress and sent it back. Our meal arrived on a hot hibachi kind... More

So I read about The Arriero Steakhouse on a review of The Holiday Inn Express. It was not as good as I had hoped. It was just okay. Service was mediocre, the steak was good. I had the Bife de Chorizo. Prices are very good. If you want a better experience for a little more money - go a couple... More

We were ravenous after a city tour and didn't get there for lunch until gone 3.30. We ordered a big bbq mixed grill to share and it was so huge it could easily have fed 4 of us. Despite our hunger there was no way we could finish it. The beers were very reasonable too - we paid less here... More

We found this restaurant while staying at the Holiday Inn Express one block away. This is a very nice restaurant with reasonable prices. It is full service with linen tablecloths and linen napkins. The service is fast and the food is excellent. The menu has a great meat selection. A filet mignon is only $10.50. English is not spoken but... More
