Located on an interior courtyard of the old Archbishop's Palace on the Grand Plaza of central Quito, this is our favorite restaurant in Quito.
Cafe del Fraile is just the right place to get some great "crillo" food, with plenty of the American cusine as well for choices. The staff is prompt and ready to cater to the desires of customers. In the many times we have eaten there, the food has always been good, or it was replaced with something else of our... More
This is a nice restaurant, on the second floor, overlooking a courtyard with other restaurants and shops. Food was ok. As a vegetarian, few options, but the vegetable soup was excellent here, as was the spicy garlic salsa on the table.

Right across plaza grande, inside the shopping center, this restaurant is located on the second floor in a nice and quiet courtyard. Great atmosphere both central but very relaxing overlooking a fountain. Nice and friendly staff with good service (I ordered the imperial limonade but got half foam so the waiter laughed and brought the whole bottle if sparkling water).... More
We had dinner here when too knackered to sort out something else. It overlooks a courtyard of a indoor shopping precinct, which is verybpkeasant. The staff were friendly despite my bad Spanish, but a little slow. The food was bountiful and tasty, with good value. Excellent aji. Good range of cocktails, overall a pleasant surprise.

Our lunch here was served by two waiters and the food was quite good. We had both local and foreign food - all in all good. The restaurant is located in a closed coutyard - which could be better, but cant be changed. We enjoyed our visit here.
We ended up here because nearly all restaurants close by 7 p.m. in Old Quito. The food was unexceptional and overpriced by Quito standards. Menu choices were more North-Americanized than Ecuadorian. Inside Court is pretty.
