We are traveling Ecuador for three weeks and thus far the majority of the food has been lacking compared to the reviews we read. Most places use little to no spice or seasoning, and one can only have so much rice and beans and chopped chicken or pork in sauce. Upon arriving in Latacunga around 8:00pm, we soon realized that of the 6 restaurants we had researched in advance, all 6 were either closed, closing within an hour, or not even located where they were supposed to be on the map. By 9:45, we were frustrated, tired, and hungry, and had almost given up hope on finding anything desirable. As we were leaving town on the main road, we saw the Cafe Torre-Eiffel Paris sign. It had been on our list, but they moved locations 2 years ago and the location has not been updated on TA. We walked in, fifteen minutes to closing, and were warmly welcomed and assured that we could Wat there. Our server spoke better English than our Spanish and was very helpful. The beers, ribs, and burger we ate were fantastic, and we didn't feel pressured at all to leave even though we extended past 10:00 pm. We were so grateful and pleasantly surprised to have found this little gem! Thanks again!

We were very excited to have Burgers after our week long trek of the loop and unfortunately they were a massive let down. They have one burger on the menu which isn't even a hamburger - it's a dry steak burger with no flavour. Additionally, we had the "BBQ Chicken Wings" which didn't even have any BBQ flavour whatsoever. We were extremely let down. One of the worst burgers that we have had in our lives.Thank you very much for your review, we are constantly upgrading to serve you better! But we haven't "BBQ Chicken Wings"!! Greetings!!

Chugchucaras Rosita

Reviewed By EdK_IL

Chugchucara (chook-choo-kara) is my new favorite food. A plate filled with roasted potatoes, roast pork, fried plantains, chicharrones, popcorn, roasted corn kernals, and empanadas mejido, the best empanadas I've tried in a very long time, sweet to the taste and filled with a white cheese. Don't pass up the mote con chicharrones as well--hominy (mote) with fried pork/pork skin. The restaurant has ample space and is very clean and you might get a chance to have a close encounter with an alpaca on the grounds..

The best gastronomy. Accompanied by the best desserts. With a special selection of wines exposed in cava. We are located in one of the oldest houses in the city. Year 1668 with an original gate of the time of the Franciscans. Traductor de Google

After 2 weeks of travelling around Ecuador, this is by far the best restaurant we've been to. The decor is superb, the food is excellent (I had the pork tournedos with mushroom sauce, which was cooked to perfection, and my wife had the chicken salad which was beautifully presented and succulent, with caramelized pineapple). The wine is also modestly priced, compared to the wine lists of other restaurants. Also, rare thing in Ecuador, we were both served at the same time. The prices are far from excessive. Honestly, this address is a jem. It is a pleasure for us to serve you. We are always at your service, thanks for your good comments.

I first came to Cunani because I was looking for a warm and quiet place with good wifi to do some research. The next time I didn’t only come for the warm atmosphere but also for the creative and delicious food and drinks. After all I ended up trying almost everything you can find on the menue and being in love with Marias Canelazo, the typical hot drink from this region. Moreover I have to mention that Maria, the manager of Cunani, is a very interested person and always willing to give you a good advice or help you out if there is a problem. I‘m very grateful that she assisted me in doing research in my issue. Thanks a lot to Maria and her little team! I‘ll be back if possible!Thanks for your comment Hannes. It was a pleasure to help and show you the nice part of Ecuadorian people. I hope you arive well in Germany. Good Luck :)
