Food was delicious with excellent service. The ceviche was very good as well as the chicken in coconut sauce.

We loved the family atmosphere where it's clear the entire family works at the restaurant. The chef could hold his own in any gourmet restaurant but this place was a simple shack and very comfortable.More

Description
New Location and New Name: I’m proud to notify that I’ve moved into to a bigger location (just meters away), and my restaurant’s new name is “El Sitio”. The address is as follows: “Bugambilias, 9 de Octubre y calle Sucre (diagonal to Banco del Pichincha’s ATM machine). We are offering an extensive menu, which includes a wide range of options, from traditional Ecuadorean food, through vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, lactose free and custom made dishes. As a complement to our ambiance, during certain days of the week, we are harmonizing the food time with melodic trumpet live music. We will be glad to serve you in “El Sitio” and would like to extend our gratitude for all the welcoming that El Sitio has received. All my best, ~Chef Willy
