Okay Lunch at the Mall

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... read 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. They are experts in meat and chicken and they serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. For sure we will... More

Located in the first floor of "Quicentro Norte" you can find this "fast food" alike restaurant. When we arrived we were quickly attended, granted that was in the middle of the afternoon and the place is packed at lunch times, and taken to a table of our choosing. Menues were provided and our orders taken. Our food, fish fingers for... More

Vaco y Vaca was my first pit stop at El Bosque and it was worth it. The service was prompt and the staff was friendly and attentive. The portions are crazy if you order a main course dish. Nearly all dishes offered as mains comes with enirmous heap of french fries or potatoes with mayo!!!! Not to mention the ensalada... More

Nice place, food is regular, ...the only thing that really bothers me is that each time I tried to eat there, I had to wait like between 15-30 minutes to get seated ! I don't really recommend it ! ..or just to visit the place and take photos !
