fun restaurant near in Mariscal

Drawn in by the colorful, whimsical decor of the huge window-seating area, we went in to have a drink and stayed for dinner. The drinks were inventive and expensive. The menu is huge so we asked our server what he recommended. We took his suggestions and enjoyed each one; raclette, stuffed... read more

I've eaten all over the world. I thought the décor in this place was quite interesting, but eating here with 4 other people was quite the experience. We ended up all sharing our food around it was so good. The Salmon steak was the most incredible fish I've ever eaten.

Let me start by saying this place is visually beautiful and very funky. That's as far as I go for compliments. It's a place for stupid gringos. Tourists that get fooled into the "prettiness" of the place with no clue what your actually in store for. The vino tinto's (red wines) from Argentina and Chile are poured from Clos box... More

I came here late at night in search of dessert and I was not disappointed. THE CREPES!! I ordered two different crepes to share and they came out piping hot still in the skillet. Wow! Very funky and fun restaurant in a great location - right in the Mariscal.

The place and food are just acceptable, the service bad, but what you have to care about is at the moment of payment: the cashier charged twice to my credit card "by mistake" and didn't put the correct information to my invoice and I've been asking them to send a corrected one but no answer, you will be more satisfied...

The restaurant is colorful and fun-looking. We had seen it all week and decided to give it a try. I found service in Quito to be slow in general, but we were there for 45 minutes before we even got our drinks! The menu is varied and has many selections; some of the dishes are named purely for shock value... More

Great restaurant, with good service amd decent wine. We were in Quito for a number of days and this was by far the best restaurant in the local area of our hotel.

Slow but good service. Tapas and wine are overpriced for the quality, we had few excellent and few bad. I won't recommend this restaurant.

Very good service and plenty of staff Good selection on the menu though there could be more Ecuadorean fare Food overall quite good but kinda overpriced for what you're getting Very trendy decor which adds to the experience Nice cocktails and drinks Not in a huge rush to go back mainly due to value for money
