Excellent choice for family lunch.

This review is on the El Bosque food court restaurant. Very good food: tasty, well prepared very big servings and side orders (you might need a doggy bag!), Service was very good and prompt, always under the manager's attentive eye. If you don't like waiting in line, just get there early.

Always I see long lines there but I don't know why. The food is nothing special or have a special taste. Is only fried meat, or things you can cook on a hurry at home Honestly I don't like it and not worth the wait for more than an hour in the line.

We were checking out the Quicentro Sur Mall and it was time to eat, so we cruised the food court and there were a lot of options so we decided to try Vaco y Vaca. We were greeted and seated promptly (it wasn't prime time lunch hour so it wasn't as crowded as other people have mentioned). We ordered the... More

Great value for your money. Nice, clean and good service. The food is tasty. Only thing bad is you might have to wait a while to be seated as it is a very popular place at certain hours.

I went to "Vaco y Vaca" (Quicentro Norte) with my family. The place is not bad but is a bit crowded. You have to make line to get a table. The food was nice and the prices are ok. The staff is friendly but they don´t know how to respond to client questions and they always have to go back... More

We went to the San Luis mall in el Valle de los Chillos. This restarant is a bit more expensive than the others, but you get a hugh plate with delicious food and it's the best restaurant in the San luis mall.
