The absolute best "local" place to eat in Playa Salinas. Food is delicious, portion size and prices are good. Recommend the cazuela pescado. The bisteak con arroz and cerviche camarones are our other favorites. The place is clean and the kitchen is sanitary. We ate there several times p/week for two months and never got food poisoning. The owner is... More

This is a local place near the coast in Salinas. They have great grilled shrimp and ceviche. You can eat outside (open air) or inside.

Without any doubt, if you want to taste good "Equatorian ceviches" you have to visit this place, specially if you love octupus or crab. The place have a long history in Salinas, and the food is recognized by locals and foreigners. Prices are in average and the quality is good. My recomendation: Crab ceviche (it is prepared with mayo) and... More

I tried the "arroz marinera" it was huge, my husband and I shared it for lunch and it was enough. Very good.

This easily became my favorite eatery in Playa Las Salinas because of its vicinity to my apartment (on the same block). I could have anything I wanted: ceviche, fried whole fish, fried filet of fish, big shrimps, seafood rice, etc.. Cold beer was inexpensive, lemonade was freshly squeezed, and the environment was quite people first (the customer). I always had... More

This is a pretty large restaurant and usually busy......because they prepare very good food and the service is good. The fried shrimp are fresh, large and very tasty and the fish is very good also. The plates with shrimp, rice, and a salad are about $8.00. You can get french fries instead if you prefer. They bring the sodas in... More

Okay so I didn't eat Ceviche everywhere it is sold, but I did try several different places and kept thinking "should have gone back to Lojanita". It was by far the best. The place was very crowded, with a lot of locals. It's not on the main drag, but it's worth the walk in a couple of blocks. If you're... More

Authentic Ecuadorian Coastal Food. Ceviche, fish, and shrimp are delicious. My son was on a "shrimp-a-thon" where he ate fried shrimp at no less than 20 places in Salinas and this was his favorite. This is a big place with seating on two levels. Menu is in English and Spanish, which made it easy for those who are not bilingual.... More

This is the best cevicheria in Salinas. We have tried Roberto’s Cevicheria as well, but Lojanita’s is definitely superior.

We ate here the first night we were in Salinas. I ordered a lobster dish that was somewhat like a cold soup. The meal was delicious and the prices were very reasonable. Seating is less than desirable as they use the cheapest plastic lawn chairs you could possibly buy - they owe their patrons better seating than that! That said,... More
