Homemade tortillas, as it should be. Fresh salsa and pico de gallo, as it should be. Small menu with big flavors. The owners prepare fresh food daily and it shows. Highly recommended.

We were a bit tired of Ecuadorian food by day 17 so tried this as a change of place. The atmosphere was nice and the food good. We shared mixed fajitas and there was plenty of meat and veggies. The lemonade was good as well.
