Chili's

Reviewed By FamilyMan1963 - Dallas

Chilis has really cut some corners since 2005. In the last 10 years, many portions have shrunk 20-40%, the waiters have to bus their own tables, handle your food and also clean the floor. Yet, the prices have risen 20-40%. If service were increased along with the pricing -- that might be acceptable. But with food portions significantly reduced and prices significantly raised, I can't recommend Chilis at all anymore. It's gone from the middle range to high-middle experience, to a low-middle experience. Most cafeterias are better. On the other hand, if you're really missing "American food", you might enjoy a trip here, but be prepared to spend a minimum of $20 per Sandwich due to franchise and food import taxes.

Me gustò Mucho el Sudado de Mariscos,Es digno de elogiar que son platos con Mariscos preparados de una manera propia y original,La atenciòn debe ser un poco màs rapida y no olvidarse de acercarse al cliente a ver si todo està Bien,Es Un lugar pequeño,Falta un poco màs de Calidez en el personal,NO OLVIDARSE DE TENER UNOS 2-3 POSTRES Y UNA MAQUINA DE CAFÈ. RECOMENDABLE POR SU BUENA COMIDA. SUPER BUENOS PRECIOS.

nuevo eden

Reviewed By natogl - Santiago Metropolitan Region, Chile

Didn´t know the place, or ever heard of it, but it was good. Must say that it took more than a jar of nice lemonade and 2 portions of "patacones" for the food to arrive, it took really long, but it was worth it. Both, the lemonade and the patacones, were good.
The rice dishes are HUGE, beware! and the other plates are not small at all. I had some shrimps and fish, really good dish, with lots of shrimp.
The translation of the menu is a joke! and it took more than one "this is not what I asked for" to get the right drink, but still the waiters were really nice and cool about everything.
In spite of the long times, I would definitely recommend it
eet smakelijk!

Sir Cafe

Reviewed By bhammer1 - Machala, Ecuador

I have visited this restaurant many times since moving to Machala. The sandwiches are deliciously unique, the coffee is strong, and the service is great. It is a quaint little restaurant with a french style interior. Absolutely gorgeous during Christmas time! It's also a great place to escape the heat of the day and get some work done due to it's good internet connection and refreshing air conditioning.
