- La RondaFirst to ReviewJul 23, 2013
This restaurant takes its name from one of the most historic streets in the Old City, but is actually located on a busy avenue in the New Town. Still, the restaurant has been in business for more than 45 years, and feels very colonial, with thick white-stucco walls, red carpeting, sloped wood ceilings, brick archways, dark-wood high-back chairs, and iron chandeliers. Tour buses bring many diners nightly. The food is great and the service is quite professional. Highlights of the high-quality Ecuadorean cuisine include langostinos del Pacífico (Pacific jumbo shrimp in garlic or tarragon sauce); brocheta mixta con lomo, pollo, y chancho (grilled kabob with beef, chicken, and pork); and perníl con llapingachos, mole, salsa de maní, y aguacate (roasted leg of pork with mashed potatoes and cheese in a peanut sauce with avocados). For appetizers, we recommend the ceviche, chicken tamales, and famous Ecuadorean soup, locro de papas con queso y aguacate (creamy potato soup with cheese and avocado). There's live music daily, and folkloric dances on the weekends which makes it an unforgettable experience.
