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

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

Walking past all the nightlife, karaoke bars, pubs and restaurants of Quito's Mariscal district, it is hard not to be impressed by the majestic La Boca del Lobo building rising out of the homogeneous backdrop. It is the sort of restaurant where one might take someone hopefully to impress them! It wasn't dinner time, but it seemed only polite to... More

Though we enjoyed most of the places we ate on Quito, this was our favorite by a rather wide margin. I am surprised it is not more highly rated, though it is expensive. The best food, and highly creative, serving things that I don't think you can get most other places. Probably a good place to visit once you have... More

Groovy decor. Really loved it. Very over the top artsy! The wait staff were friendly, bi-lingual and helpful. The menu is great, offering a large variety of upscale modern food choices, both large and small. I had mussels and they were great! My dining companions also liked their dishes.

8$ for a teenytiny fondue with cheese and pepper that was barely an entrée... Good but far from what you normally can get in Ecuador for that price. Waitresss nice but looked a little too surprised when we said no to more food or wine (we weren't prepared for that, being on a budget). She was pressing and forgot us... More
