Very close to the Eugenia Hotel. Food was ver good, prices were higher, equivalent to North American prices, but quality is high, service is good and location was excellent.

“Tasty beef at a moderate price for Quito”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 December 2012

The steaks at Estebans are quite good and less expensive than other steakhouses in Quito. Their bife de chorizo has as much marbaling as you'll find in Quito and the service has been great both times we've gone. Recommended for good steak without spending the big bucks at pricier spots.

“Phenomenal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2012

Very nice restaurant just one block from The Holiday Inn Express.Try the Bife de Chorizo (which has nothing todo with the Chorizo sausage). It is from the most tender part of the cow and is absolutely delicious. Also, try their house wine from Chile. It was so good! Price was a little high but well worth it.

“Great steak”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2012

This was a friendly place with excellent food. The staff did not speak English, but had an English menu which we found very helpful. My husband got their signature dish, which I can't remember the name of, but it featured the name "Esteban" and he loved it and ended up having to share it with our youngest son. The food was lovely and the people friendly. It's in a tough area to hail a taxi but the staff called one for us.

“Excellent beef”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2012

Like others, we were staying at the nearly-adjacent Holiday Inn Express and were looking for an "easy" dinner. The Estaban is an Argentine steak house and, candidly, the beef is better than at most steak houses in Argentina (and certainly the United States). A large lomo (filet mignon) with french fries is about $18 (cheaper than current Buenos Aires prices) plus tax and tip. Decor is upscale steakhouse (not as fancy as a US steakhouse).

BTW, a block in the other direction from the Holiday Inn is a Waffles & More restaurant, that has excellent gelato (available for take-out). So it is very possible to have a very easy and delicious dinner without walking more than a block from this hotel!
