Really good Ecuadorian lunch in authentic setting in the Old Town. Packed with locals so get in before 1:30 or so. Good fast service and really tasty food. We had the arroz marinara and the lamb stew and both were excellent! We were too stuffed...More

We only came there to have some ice cream and although it is home made, we weren't really impressed. Prices were okay, the place was clean, and the staff were friendly.

Limited hours but generally friendly service, fantastic ice cream in a convenient old town location. Try the cinammon. Empanadas are recommended. Ceviche, for Ecuatorian standards, is fresh.
