Restaurant description

Experience a colourful taste of Ecuador and Latin America at El Inca Plebeyo on Essex Road, with a vibrant selection of dishes served in a bustling, rustic setting of exposed brick walls and a quirky collection of knick knacks throughout.

The El Inca Plebeyo menu specialises in traditional and modern Ecuadorian cuisine, with colourful dishes made to be shared. Zesty ceviches are made with sea bass, lime juice and rocoto chilli, while ripe plantains with homemade cheese are perfect finger food for the table. Succulent slow-cooked stews are a popular choice, while celebrated chef's specialities include the Ecuadorian slow-roasted pork.

Save room for dessert at El Inca Plebeyo in Islington, as rich chocolate fondant is served with chilli candies, while the bar serves up a concise international wine list, as well as artisan spirits from Ecuador.

A warm, inviting Ecuadorian restaurant in London, El Inca Plebeyo also serves kids' menus, and sits just a minute's walk from Essex Road Rail Station.

    The restaurant has the feel of the real Ecuador, with friendly owner/staff and authentic "local" cuisine. We especially enjoyed the ceviche and the octopus. Shame we couldn't stay for the churros.

    The food is absolutely delicious and cooked to very high standards. The Chef himself was available to talk to us about the Ecuadorean ingredients and the service in general was superb.

    Waitress was really helpful in recommending local dishes, and taking the time to explain them. We opted for all of her recommendations for an authentic and delicious experience, and needless to say we were not disappointed Delicious, fresh, tasty and just the right amount. Would definitely visit again!

    Great food. Probably portions/price ratio should be reviewed. I am Ecuadorian, and I know how much it costs to make these dishes in the UK. A little overpriced, but nevertheless great tasting food. And fabulous service.
