My best friends from the USA came to Ecuador to help me celebrate my 60th birthday. I live in Cuenca, but we were in Quito for 'the big day'. Not knowing which restaurant to choose, we were told of Mosaico's beautiful views. We read the reviews, which did not seem good food-wise and service, but decided to go for the... More

We were there twice and only had lunch so I can't comment on dinner. I had the chicken Parmesan sandwich. It amazed me how they could cut chicken so thin, bread it, fry it and turn it into leather. My wife had a gyro and didn't recognize what the meat was. This is a place where you go for the... More

The view is enough reason to go. The foods good. Not the best ever but def not bad. The service is a little slow but still go if you're in quito!

Positives: - view Negatives: - Out of most interesting items by 7:30p - Mojito with a solid layer of sugar at the bottom of the glass - Canned olives dumped into serving ware - Sloooooow service (maybe a positive - you can enjoy the view for ever. Just don't come hungry) - Out of the way location - good luck... More

This place is on 'must visit list' for Quito. This restaurant has perfect location for Quito: from terrace can be seen historical center of Quito, volcano Pincicha, and almost all sightseeing locations in Quito. Best time to come to this restaurant is around 6 pm. This way, first you will enjoy sunset over Pincicha, and after that, night sky over... More

I love the view from this place! The food and service are oK but it is a nice cafe with good ambiance. Compared with the places nearby that got there several years later, this is the best one!! The others are not worth.

For the love of God do not eat here. The views amazing and earned the one star all on its own; maybe come for a coffee or a glass of wine but 100% do not spend your money on what they call food. We shared a portion of chicken wings and a plate of churrasco, I honestly thought you couldnt... More

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...
