Restaurante El Descanso del Guia - Restaurant Puerto Ayora - Ecuador

The eclectic Restaurante El Descanso del Guia is a local staple. It is popular for breakfasts: try the bolon de verde, a giant ball of cooked plantain: it's about as 'typical' as it gets. Also good are the fruit salads and secos de carne and pollo (chicken and beef soups) available for dine-in or to-go.

It is popular with locals for the inexpensive yet hearty fixed lunch and dinner menus. The sparse decorations and assorted furnishings make the interior a bit drab superficially, but the surrounding greenery, cool breeze from the ocean, and friendly service add refreshment and life to the establishment.

A sign at the restaurant says "Rincon del Asado," so there may be some confusion about the name of the place.
