We are a restaurant with Colombian and international dishes fused with the fruits of the Ecuadorian sea with a capacity for 30 people in a rustic place with outdoor tables something out of the ordinary
We really enjoyed the patacon here. We ordered one with beans and cheese and one with shrimp in a cream sauce. Both were absolutely delicious. If you are looking for some wonderful South American food look no further!

We came here twice, first trying out their cerviche (shrimp and octopus) which has plenty of seafood and the sauce was good (well balanced, not too citrus). Sure enough we have tried better ones in Quito but with the price and the freshness of the seafood, Carmita is a decent choice in town. We also appreciate with the efficiency of the service as order was taken quickly and so as the food to our table. The plantain chips were served warm which wasn't often the case in the other local restaurants. We also enjoyed the corvina (sea bass) and garlic shrimp dishes in our second visit.

I cannot say that this was the best Italian food I have ever eaten because I live in a city with great Italian food. However, this dining experience was the best I’ve yet had in Ecuador.
The location in a garden is lovely and the owner has taken great care to make the dining experience memorable. She joked and laughed with us all evening.
We had linguine with clams and spaghetti bolognese, a half litre of red wine and tiramisu to finish.
It was a lovely evening!

Etnias café is a charming coffee shop, close to the Front Beach of Puerto López (half an hour north of Montañita and 2 hours south of Manta city) created and managed by a French couple. For coffee lovers, you will drink excellent expresso or cappuccino accompanied by savoury or sweet French creps, home-made brownies, pies or waffles. Just next door, you can buy unique fairtrade ecuatorian souvenirs in Etnias handicrafts shop.
A very nice cafe in central Puerto Lopez, which serves various coffees, breakfasts & crepes. Go if you want to escape Ecuadorian food for a moment.
The price level is comparatively quite high and the opening hours seem to vary (I had the most success between 9-12!), but the quality is good and the service is great!

The only great thing about this place are the former reviews. The pizza was greasy, sloggy and without any good taste. The prices are ridiculous high compared to the area, where way better food can be found for half the price. For 3 pizzas we paid nearly 50 dollars and all left unhappy.

We stayed at Buena vida and ate breakfast and lunch here. Esther the chef is a wonderful cook and prepares beautiful simple food that is tasty and filling. The breakfast eggs are a winner!

Casa Vecchia is an Italian restaurant located in the small town of Puerto Lopez. Enjoy our home-made pasta, ravioli and lasagna in a quiet and relaxing environment.
Puerto Lopez is just a small fishing village, so don't expect anything fancy here. If you want to get away from the local food (fishes, patacones, etc), Casa Vecchia is a good option.
The food is nice and worth what it costs. Service can be a bit slow but we liked it so much compared to other restaurants that we went there twice in a 5 day stay.

Everything Is Prepared Straight Away With Local Fresh Ingredients Including Seafood And Fish From Our Manabi Shores, For Dishes Such As Ceviche, Fish Burritos Or A House Specialty Like Fish In Garlic Sauce. Our Juices Are Made From Fresh Natural Fruits And Our Coffee Is Fresh, Too.
We made a day trip to Ayampe to explore options in the area. We met some wonderful people, and happened upon this restaurant while searching for a meal in the late afternoon, in the rain. Though the service was a bit slow--this is Ecuador, everything is made from scratch, and no one moves fast--it was worth the wait. The portions were very generous, the food fresh, and some of the best local fare we've eaten. The owners/staff were very friendly. Prices were reasonable, too.

liked fresh juices, postre, fried plantain.
do not like, long waits for meals, meals not consistent if you are staying more than one night! the pasta may vary for the same dish
fish dishes could be better. please do something about serving plain white rice with a meal that has no sauce or gravy, why not a mixed veg rice!

We loved Los Orishas so much we returned three times during our stay in Ayampe. The food is hands down the best we had in Ecuador - the pizza is heavenly, and the pastas are great across the board. The prices are a bargain, and the beer and wine selection is good value. Service was always friendly, and you are welcome to stay as long as you want (there's always good company in Ayampe). If you go, make sure to save room for the cheesecake.
