We enjoyed our visits here! Came for cocktails and beers, and had another round. The server even brought us some complimentary snacks!

We stopped in for a beer and an app. The grilled veggie platter with eggplant, mushrooms, peppers was surprisingly superb. Seemed like it would be good for lunch or dinner as well.

Busy bar and restaurant on the main road near the harbour. Drinks prices are a little more expensive than others in the area, but it doesn’t stop the crowds. Inside and outside seating - nice ambiance. Excellent friendly service - English speaking.

Nice staff, good food. A small band came and played some live music, traditional Ecuadorian music. It was a nice experience, my friend got the tuna steak which was grilled perfectly.
