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 hordes of diners nightly; indeed, very few locals come here. That said, the food here is good, and the service 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, I 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.
