The food was very little although it was part of main food. The decoration was not also wow. So did not understand why the place was fully booked all the time. The owner was not very friendly neither. The taste was good.More

This little restaurant run by a friendly Spanish man from Malaga is a delight! All homemade tapas at a reasonable price (around $3-5 per dish). A good house wine - especially for Ecuadorian standards -. Ask for the boquerones, outstanding!
