Never mind dinner, go for a couple of tapas plates and a wonderful cocktail at this funky little haunt in La Mariscal. Grab a seat by the window and watch the streetside entertainment. You will not be disappointed.

This restaurant is criticized for its 55-page menu, but really has no more than two items on a page and lots of graphics, so it isn't quite the confusion that it seems. The food was innovative and excellent and we loved the drinks. The only issue is too-loud music, which we expected from the reviews by others. Find a seat... More

Very quirky decor, waiters are nice, but the food was absolutely terrible. Meat was bland and totally overcooked, and very expensive for what you get. Skip this place and go to Mama Clorinda across the street for much better food.

La Boca is just a short walk from Plaza Foch in the heart of Quito's entertainment district. It is a fantastically over the top place and I came back regularly with my tour group. It serves cocktails until midnight, maybe later, we were having such a good time we lost track of time. The rooms and menu are like an... More

This place has Unique and fun decor, different to anything I've seen before! The menu is like an art book with all sorts of drawings on it, but it does give good descriptions of the food. It is one of the few places that has vegetarian food in Quito, which made it easier for me as most places don't! The... More

Definitely a unique atmosphere and setting. The food was good but portions were a little small for the price. Good service, oh and there seems to be a dance club in the back?

the atmosphere is interesting. The girl painting with a bottle of Absolut vodka is unique. The food is decent, but expensive. The menu is strange. Very hard to navigate it. Service is good. The outdoor area is nice.

I think the overall experience was disorienting. The decor was a huge mix of different things from paintings to birdcages to a huge advertisement for vodka. The menu was equally confusing--the prices werent clear, the images were clouded with graphics (both funny and inappropriate at times), and the contents of the food was a mystery. I think some tabs would've... More

The interior reminded me of a 90s TV show - great! But the menu was a bit confusing, and the food not outstanding. A nice meal nonetheless.

The food here was not particularly tasty but the ambiance was great. The menu is a bit hard to read but fun. Definitely a place to take a group for some beers and appetizers!
