Quilombo Restaurant Argentinian Grill.
Quilombo Restaurant started in Banos in 2002 by an Argentinian Chef rapidly became one of the best culinary options that Baños has to offer, specially when it comes to grilled meats and BBQ style dishes with that characteristic and famous Argentinian style and flavor.
Quilombo History: Quilombo Restaurant was created right after the massive return of the city population because of a forced evacuation that lasted 1 1/2 years ordered by the authorities of Ecuador and Banos due to risky activity of the well known Tungurahua volcano and the possibility of affecting the city if an eruption where to take place at that time. Kilombo is out of any doubt one of the best restaurants in banos, so why don’t you just give it a go and try some delicious Parrillada Argentina in Ecuador!
Quilombo Restaurant? What does Quilombo means?
Quilombo is a word used in Spanish language that has several meanings but some of the best known are for example: The word Quilombo in ancient times was used in Brazil to denote a place where the slaves took control and fought for their freedom. The word Quilombo also refers to a big mixture of things or people, also emotions or intense emotions.
This is how Quilombo Restaurant started finding, rescuing and discovering latin American flavors and putting them on the grill. Step by step the Argentinian style to grill meats was incorporated, every possible ingredient coming from our mixed dark America has been used by our chefs. All this characteristics make of Quilombo your restaurant that special place that meat and grill connoisseurs enjoy every time they visit us.

La Posada del Arte Hostel.
Our hostel is also a showcase for Ecuadorian painters. We have over 50 works, including several masters as Witman Walsaqui, Alberto Soriano, Galo Chavez, and Jose Sanchez. We also represent local Baños artist Jaime Perez. The presence of these fine works sets the tone for the overall ambiance, which, according to comments by our guests, is tasteful, friendly and cozy.
Our sala encourages guests to relax, read, listen to music, or enjoy a crackling fire. From among the plants beneath the third floor skylight can be heard the gentle rush of the waterfall, which tumbles from the mountains just a half block away.

A waiter will quickly welcome you and help you finding a comfortable table that will suit your needs. get ready then to try some of the best Italian food you would possibly ever taste here in Ecuador.
The restaurant accounts a long tradition locally but also internationally since his very owner cooked internationally for several years at very exclusive restaurants around the world before moving back to Baños. Countries the Chef got experience from are: Italy, Germany, USA, and Spain.
Improvement and out of the box thinking without loosing its classic style has been one of the key factors of Pappardelle success through the years, before this place was also known as Buon Giorno.
Basically if you feel like trying or having a real Italian Pizza or a Lasagna go with them.
Prices are competitive even for those i a budget do not get fooled by the nice facade. Quality and environment surpasses most of the local restaurants in town. Pappardelle is a national referent nowadays in terms of innovation, decoration and good taste.
