Located in an alley and difficult to find. Having found it we were really disappointed with the food. I was expecting farm to table local dishes so the menu was a surprise. Grilled meat was served with a cup of plain white rice and no salad or vegetables of any kind. Fried potato was the only other option. Some dishes... More

Not sure when it happened, but this place is no longer worthy of the praise given by previous reviewers. The room itself is charming and the folks running the place are friendly, but the food is, to be generous, ordinary. There were no Ecuadoran dishes on offer. My wife had a grilled pork slab with rice and I had grilled... More

My husband and I stayed at Portal de Cantuna and ate at this restaurant two of the nights we were there. Both meals were superb. The chef Jan was a visiting chef, from what I understood. He was very attentive, as was the waiter, both nights. We had soup both nights, plantain soup the first night and a potato soup... More

It's next door to Hotel Boutique Portal de Cantuna so look for their canopy in the street, go down the alley and you'll find it. The menu is limited but everything... More

Cocina Urban con sabor ecuador is located downstairs from the excellent B&B Hotel Boutique Portal de Cantuna, the entrance of which is located 100 feet uphill from the left front corner of Iglesia de San Francisco. Carlos, the young chef and co-owner of the restaurant, was Cordon Bleu-trained in Peru. He has a limited but excellent menu; during our stay... More

Situated in the Old Town in an off street courtyard is this newly renovated, small restaurant. The chef is young and I an led to believe cordon bleu trained. The menu is changed to reflect what is available in the market. The night we visited we had the last portion of the garlic prawns ( delicious) for the season. Chicken... More
