Second visit. Had a fantastic time. Cocktails were delicious. The empanadas are amazing. We had the grilled skirt steak with grilled asparagus which was delicious. The grilled asparagus was perfection. Mauricio our server was terrific as well!

Table was ready on time. Service was exemplary. Food was fabulous as always. Empanadas were crispy and flavorful. Not too oily at all. Lamb skewers were as always, perfectly cooked with a little bit of char and a hint of smokiness. Skirt steak and chicken thighs were perfectly cooked and nicely presented. Pulled pork was great. In fact, I have nothing but superlattices to describe the meal. We will return…again and again.

So glad an Ecuadorian restaurant opened in Saint Louis! The food is amazing and the staff is always wonderful! Can’t go wrong with any of their menus, brunch, lunch and dinner!

A hidden gem for sure!

Went for brunch, our first visit, and had a terrific meal. Our server Camilo was warm, welcoming. Our choices included the huevos Benito, the heaven calentado and the aguacate relleno. Everything was delicious with amazingly fresh ingredients. We totally enjoyed ourselves and can’t wait to go back for an evening meal!

Seated at the 2 top at entrance to kitchen, an unfortunate table. It was fairly noisy, maybe because of where our table was situated. Food was mediocre. Skirt steak was tough and chewy. Mahi mahi was dry and tasted fishy. Green salad was good.
This was our 2nd experience and was very disappointed.

Not being familiar with Latin American food, our server made very good recommendations for appetizers. Ordered the flank steak which was cooked perfectly and the tiger shrimp. Should have realized that the tiger shrimp came with shell on. It was a little messy. Very good service and the restaurant is bright and new looking. Will come back and try the prime rib next time.

Outstanding is the best word to describe the restaurant. Everything was so good, fresh, excellent quality. Such a different menu, definitely not food you could make yourself at home. Such friendly, hardworking staff. Best meal I have had out in a long time.

THe apps were delicious! I came for the Empanadas and the beef didn’t disappoint. The skirt steak was rare more than Medium rare and for a tough cut, was still quite tough and still pretty pricy. The blood orange sorbet was great too

Poor service - my wife ordered tomato salad with shrimp as entry. I ordered a skirt steak. Brought the steak entry out and had to wait almost 10 min for the salad. Steak got cold.

Do not recommend

Pleasant, unpretentious restaurant that knows what it wants. They grill things, and do it very well. Special mention for the grilled sweetbreads and homemade blood sausage. Both were delicious, and props to the restaurant for offering things that are not in the St. Louis comfort zone. Needless to say, my steak was excellent. The wine list is interesting, too.

This was our first visit. I had been wanting to try this restaurant for months. The menu print is very small and could use some additional explanation. Good wine selection. The food was excellent and the service was very good but not great. I expected better ambience and some background music. Overall a very good experience. We will be back.
We had a 6:30 reservation and a couple came in around 7:45 and was turned away which I found odd since there were empty tables and no one else came in worth a reservation before we left at 8:30.

Worst service I've ever seen, waitress didn't arrive for 15 minutes after we were seated, food didn't arrive for almost an hour after that, and the waitress brought half our drink orders after about 10 minutes, with the other half not arriving until 20 minutes later. Then we asked for the check, it wasn't brought for 20 minutes, and asked again, and another 15 minutes passed before we got the check. Nearby tables had similar issues, and the table next to use had their order and check messed up multiple times. Potentially would check it out again to see if this was a fluke, since the other reviewers don't seem to have had similar issues

Tasty South American food. What we tried was mostly fried but there are many other options. The avocado salad was excellent, similar to a guacamole. Very good empanadas although I would have preferred baked instead of fried.

Our first visit. The food was great, although a little on the expensive side. Service was a little strange. We reported that we were celebrating a birthday, but the server didn’t ask if we would like to order dessert. No big deal, we finished the night at Ted Drewe’s instead. Awesome meal.
