Overall taste of food fine. We asked for a "lomo a la plancha" and "trucha a la plancha " both dishes super grease....that was the downside. On the other side...the service was quick and natural juices were tasty.

We stopped for a lunch break during a leather shopping trip in Cotacachi. The shrimp in garlic sauce was delicious. Typical for most Ecuadorian restaurants, a bowl of popcorn with a tasty hot sauce was complimentary!
