I've been here twice with my boyfriend and it is really one of the nicest, most romantic unassuming restaurants I've been to. The food is delicious, the ambiance is fantastic and the service is very friendly. An added bonus is that my boyfriend lives up the hill from El Caserio so we get to take a nice romantic stroll through... More

You don't find many Ecuadorian restaurants outside of Ecuador, but this is one of the best. My father was Ecuadorian and first stumbled upon this restaurant (the original one on Virgil Blvd) almost 18 years ago. The food is very faithful to its roots bringing nostalgia with every bite. If its your first time eating here, try the Milanesa,breaded skirt... More

A party of 8 of us went there since one of the group is an Ecuadorian and he recommended it. We were not disappointed. From the outside, you just know it's going to be good and going in, you had the feel you'd come to a welcoming place you'd just like to hang out in. Old world feel crossing a... More

The food here is consistently good as is the service. The staff is really friendly and they remember you when you return even if it's been awhile. The menu is from South America and includes a lot of roast pork, which they do extremely well. They also have a brunch menu on Sundays with several omelet choices and bottomless mimosas.... More

I enjoyed a most delicious dinner at El Caserio. I started with the Ceviche Equatoriano de Camarones (shrimp ceviche) which was very fresh, delicious and flavorful and more than enough for two should one share it with a friend. My main course was a scrumptious Halibut al Caserio what was perfectly cooked - juicy and tender and beautifully spiced. For... More

This is my second time to El Caserio. The drive is about an hour away for me so the fact that I drove and hour certainly means this place is good. I love a good authentic meal. The first time I came here I knew I wanted to come back for a special occasion. I brought my boyfriend here for... More

Came here with my friends and what brought me here was the decor from pics I saw online. The service was not good but the food was good.
