This is a great neighborhood spot. Very small place but gracious and friendly staff. Food was well prepared and authentic.
We absolutely loved this tiny gem. Amazing, innovative food. Incredibly friendly, helpful service. This restaurant is just perfect!
The place is small but worth it. The food was amazing, the aguardiente drink was fantastic. The staff behind and on the scene are very passionate about what they do. The dedication and culinary expertise comes through in the flavors, service, drink and even decor. They made us feel very welcomed and comfortable. This place was fantastic and would definitely come back.
I came here with a group of 8 to celebrate a friend's birthday. The staff was extremely sweet and accommodating to us. Every dish they recommended was delicious. I highly recommend this place and am already looking forward to returning....which I rarely do with the amount of great restaurants in NYC!
This is a cozy little place with delicious, authentic-style Ecuadorian food. The service is friendly and excellent. You feel right at home from the moment you walk in. It's a real authentic treat in a sea of sanitized tourist traps.
Tiny place but they made our group of 5 feel welcome and comfortable. The ambience was intimate and convivial. Our server cheerfully explained unfamiliar items, gave us great recommendations, and really seemed to enjoy sharing his cultural cuisine with us. Ceviche and other seafood were great, as were red-meat choices, and the desserts were unique and delicious. Definitely try a cocktail made with Ecuarodean "firewater" --powerful but light, blends great with fruit juices and flavors.
Second time at this restaurant... there will definitely be more. Fabulous food, great service... a very intimate setting (probably 16 max). Staff is very friendly and helpful.
Our party of five found this tiny restaurant a wonder. The food was excellent. We were served by the owner, and he took time to chat with us, pointing out the pictures of his family on the wall. We felt we had escaped the harshness of the city, that we'd been well fed, and would be telling our friends. Wow.
Four of us dined here before going to the theater, and will definitely return! The food was wonderful- authentic yet delicately , imaginatively prepared. And the service was outstanding.
I believe this is the ONLY Ecuadorean restaurant in New York, and my guest and I were charmed and delighted to discover a new cuisine. Great seafood and steak. Personal attention offered with great national pride, that let us linger from 6:00-9:00. TINY place, hard to spot even as you are approaching it, but lovely decor that is both modern and warm.
The cocktails were great and was like I was in Ecuador with freshly prepared great food
Definitely need reservations as this is a very tiny place.....a hole in the wall but once you find it you're hooked. I highly recommend the Chancho sandwiches and the fritada.
The title suggests that even if you are vegetarian, this place has good food to offer. Its not on the menu but you just have to ask the staff, which is what I did, and I got a delightful meal.
You can walk right by this place, but don't. It's a treat. The food is tasty, attractive and reasonably priced. Service is f=very friendly. It's family run and the family portraits on the wall lend to the atmosphere. Ask about the portraits on the wall and they'll share a bit of family history. Good wine and creative drink menu add to the pleasure. Try it out. You will be glad you did.
Delicious food and great service. Abel was welcoming and attentive, and served up an incredible meal. I look forward to dining at Ñaño again soon.
Amazing food. Complimentary Plantain chips and salsa delicious. I had the pork and mashed yucca and my husband had the ribeye and sausage skewers. Awesome flavors. Super small venue, you could walk right by, but definitely make a point to stop. Great date night. Reasonable prices.
I'm always looking for a good place I can remember my home. If you ever been to Ecuador or miss home I would suggest you visit Ñaño. The place is small but the quality is amazing.
We tried this place out for our Valentine's day dinner and thoroughly enjoyed it. The food was excellent, we had never had Ecuadorian cuisine before, it reminded us of Brazilian food. Fritada and Pollo a la Naranja were both delicious and we loved the mashed yucca. The waitress seemed new to waiting tables and her English was maybe not the best, but what she lacked in skills she made up for with her polite personality. One of the nice things about the ambiance was that it was not too noisy and we were able to have a conversation without yelling across the table at each other.
1. Very limited menu.
2. Server seemed to have never worked in a restaurant prior.
3. No liquor license.
4. Food was bland, under-seasoned and dry.
If you are looking for a good and authentic Ecuadorian restaurant, check out this neighborhood treasure. The owner pays homage to his families recipes. He even came out to give me a brief history of family photos that hang on the walls. It made the experience that much more memorable.
