Heladería San Agustín is a must-see and must-try Ice Cream Shop. Located near Plaza de Independencia (Plaza Grande) this Heladería gets very busy during lunch hours with both Ecuadorians and tourists. The Heladería of course offers up fresh handmade ice cream that is made using a traditional paila. Flavors are exotic to non-Ecuadorians and become a cultural experience for those... More

This place does a booming business thanks to lonely planet. We got there to beat the lunch time rush and were glad we did since shortly after we arrived they put up a purple sash to block further entrance until more tables opened up. The service was really slow. Perhaps it was a factor of what we ordered or time... More

This restaurant (don't be confused by the "heladeria" sign outside, meaning ice creams) is well located in the city center close to the San Agustin church. They serve excellent local food and very large dishes, so pay attention not ordering too much. I recommend to order different dishes and share!

We only came there to have some ice cream and although it is home made, we weren't really impressed. Prices were okay, the place was clean, and the staff were friendly.

Limited hours but generally friendly service, fantastic ice cream in a convenient old town location. Try the cinammon. Empanadas are recommended. Ceviche, for Ecuatorian standards, is fresh.

We went there 3 times... So because they have business hours doesn't mean they are actually open during those hours!! And because they have a menu doesn't mean they have all the food. Even if it is 1 pm. We never got to try the goat stew coz they were always out! but other things we tried were really good.... More

This Heladeria is well known and written up in just about every travel book and magazine available. The food is great including many of the traditional Ecudorian plates as well as the ice cream. The atmosphere is lively with an excellent waitstaff.

Come early before the lunch rush and enjoy lunch on the upstairs balcony al fresco! Excellent food and service. Ceviche is to die for. A charming atmosphere in the great old town of Quito.
