From noon to about 2:00 pm this restaurant offers a set menu lunch for $4.00 that was exceptional in value for everything you get: a starter, a salad, main course, natural fruit juice and fruit slices for desert....it was really tasty, good portions and fresh fruit

We got the brocheta de pollo and the fritada. The chicken came with fries and a salad. Very good. The fritada was chunks of fried pork on a bed of hominy, with many sides like corn on the cob, cheese, fried potatoes, plaintains, and a green salad. Two people shared it and we could not finish it. It was also tasty. Very good prices here. Friendly staff.

The food here is very similar to Colombian, the difference is that like Peru they have access to some ingredients that don't exist in other countries, like certain types of corn/maize. We are fantastic Gallena (hen) and all sorts of typical dishes. Unbelievably the meal 5 plates of food and two drinks came to only $21!!
If you don't eat here then you will have missed an opportunity. Genuinely.

This is one of the restaurants I saw from hotel window. I felt having some Ecuadorian food, so I walked up to it. El Padrino seemed to be a combination of Restaurant-Dance Club establishment. When I arrived it was early, so no much was going on. I ordered Grilled Chicken and Menestras to go, which was very tasty, and priced well. The cashier and server were very friendly. This is not a fancy place by no means, but it seems to be a fun place for younger clients.
