Louisiana Cajun spice in Quito

Great restaurant find in Quito. Vegetarian options with Po Boy sandwiches that taste like you are down on Canal St in NOLA. The food comes from the restaurants own farm and the homemade chocolates were a nice way to finish off the meal. The beer selection is unusual for Quito with stout and IPA... read more

Worth a stop in if you're hungry and in the Old Town area. Great choice of local micro brews and really good coffee. My husband is from Louisiana where cajun is at its finest, and said that this cajun was some of the best he had ever had. We ended up eating here 2 times during our 3 days in... More

We rented the room above this restaurant for a few days, and breakfast at the restaurant is included each day. The breakfast was the best we had our entire trip. It's generous in size, the fruit is fresh and varied, the croissants are giant, and the eggs are made to order. However, the real standout is the coffee. It was... More

This is a refreshing place in Quito. Located only a couple of blocks away from the main square and on the Junin street. The food is good and the atmorphere too. They offered a good selection of appetizers and a small selection of main dishes. The fried casabas are great and they come with a good souce. I would recommend... More

It was ok experience, but nothing more that this, we waited for the food too long, and then I got a wrong course. The decoration is nice and the jazz music was cool. I felt they are more specialized in coffee and chocolate, then meals

Thank you for the response. Sorry you waited too long....you did not mention what you ordered but we have always felt that enjoying the great atmosphere of our 400 year old establishment is a big part of the experience......as you mention with your comment about our decoration. We are not fast food...our hamberger for instance takes 20 minutes. If you... More

Nice little cafe. Great cosy atmosphere inside (it's really small but has three levels!) and a couple of outdoor tables too. We enjoyed sitting outside and watching the world go by. We were there for dinner - as well as some Ecuadorian stuff they offered some Cajun specialities. The spicy rice with prawns was a welcome change from the usual... More

We found this place by chance and ended up eating & drinking here on a number of occasions. There is a good variety of food at very reasonable prices. The food is tasty and the portions are ample. We would go back without a second thought.

Very simple from the outside, but amazing decorations in the inside. The food couldn't be better and the beer is incredible. The staff is great and very nice. I see myself returning during my time in quito
