Review of El Faro

El Faro
Price range: US$3 - US$20
Cuisines: Ecuadorean
Restaurant details
Reviewed 15 November 2012

We have dined 4 times at this restaurant: initially it was very good; more specifically, we had a great "parillada de mariscos" (grilled seafood) for two, with half a lobster and a good side salad for each of us, many shrimps etc., for 15 dollars/person. But subsequently, they probably thought to have secured the customer, so they started to get worse and worse: once, the grilled meat was so hard, we had trouble chewing it. The worst happened on the last day, when two friends came to eat with us, the "parillada de mariscos": for four people, we got about the same quantity as we had got for two; still one lobster only, which was split in 4 parts instead of 2; two salads only, instead of four; only when we complained, they brought the 2 other salads. At the end, "of course", the bill was double, because there were four of us...
