I went to this place by night with some friends because of the view. It was positively stunning. It was more or less late in the night (for Quito standards) so we were able to get a table quite fast on the terrace. Everything seemed great by then. The waiter was a little slow, but ok, although he knew nothing... More

The first time I came here, a couple of years ago ..it was the best place ever.. Sadly it has changed a lot .. The site remains the same but the service has become rude and careless, always seem to be in a hurry and in bad mood. The food also has changed, considering the quality it's very over priced... More

My family celebrated my mother's birthday at this restaurant last Saturday. The view is really spectacular! The service was really good. Our waiters were really helpful and friendly. They also have live entertainment which made this place even more special. The food was really good too. We enjoyed the "hervidos." It was a cool afternoon so the different flavored "hervidos"...

This restaurant is located on a hill, so you have a really nice view over the city. It is especially nice to go in the late afternoon, around 6 pm to watch the sunset. Food is also nice, some typical Ecuadorian dishes and some international one, including some Greek food.

If I have to give an opinion about this place, its the location, you can see all the main attractions of Quito from the top. Its a good place to go for a coffee or some "traditional piqueo". The bestplitace to sit its outside in the terrace, perfect for pictures.

Cafe Mosaico is a nice little uphill walk from Old Town [though the cardio is compounded by the high elevation and some might find themselves slightly breathless through the course of the climb]. Believe the hype though: this place is absolutely worth it. I had my last meal here before departing Ecuador and I wouldn't have had it any other... More

We got to the restaurant late,still a beautiful view. Make sure you head up the stairs to the top balcony when you walk in. The ambience is better upstairs. The waiter was rushed off his feet. When the food arrived it was good. Bring an jacket. Enjoy, Happy Trails 12

The view from the balcony seating is amazing, especially at night. There is a very extensive and varied menu. I had pancakes with banana and chocolate chips, and they were delicious!

At first I thought my husband just picked the place that required walking the most steps/hills to get to, but when we walked into Cafe Mosaico and saw the view of Quito's entirety beneath us, I was sold. Totally excellent view (you really get to see Quito nestled into the mountains/valley and get an even bigger appreciation for how big... More

A friend took us for dinner and the view is spectacular. Don't forget to take your camera. We had a fish that offers different dishes like pork, chicken fingers, chicken wings, meatballs, empanadas, etc but all with a quiteno flavor - different and very tasty.
