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... 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.

We went to the San Luis mall in el Valle de los Chillos.

Menues were provided and our orders taken. Our food, fish fingers for... 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 !
