delicious!

My husband and I loved this place. It is definitely geared more towards the Western traveler, both in prices and food. The service is top-notch and the food was delicious. We were talking about their fondue for the rest of our Ecuador trip.

A great restaurant with wonderful food. There are plenty of options on the menu and it all looks good. Portion size was very appropriate, yet filling. Free WiFi in the restaurant although signal was weak on ground floor.

Great place for dinner. They do know how to cook a great steak and the cocktails were fabulous! We tend to go for local cuisine when travelling, but these guys simply know what they're doing. Give it a try - you will come back for more.

It was good, but not great. The green beans that came with the Zurich chicken were the high light of the meal. It was also a little expensive, but the upstairs patio is really nice & overall I was satisfied.

We went to Swiss Bistro based on their good reviews. While the food wasn't bad, the steak was chewy and overall the food was unremarkable. The service wasn't very good, but we attributed that to the holiday weekend (Semana Santa). The prices were rather expensive as well, and neither the quality of the food, the atmosphere, or the service warranted... More

So we heard this place has fondue, and none of us had had good cheese in like FOREVER. So we decided to check it out. We went and the prices for a fondue are minimum $18. Pricey for Ecuador. We got one anyway and shared it between four of us and it was a good appetizer. Delicious and worth it... More
