After calling and consulting if the restaurant was opened in the afternoon we got rejected once there. Service was "closed" and were only offering drinks. Assuming we had already checked if the restaurant was opened and working we could not even get a justification of what had happened. In general a lack of communitaion between the manager and workes leading to a non functional restaurant.

If you are in Quito, you should stay at least one night at the El Crater Hotel and Restaurant. The service and hospitality are wonderful. The suites are very modern with views on each side of the room of the inside of a crater and the city views of Quito. The king size bed was very comfortable with lovely bed linens and comforters. The location is very close to Quito so it’s an easy drive to get there. The restaurant food was very well prepared. And there are llamas there! It’s a special place.

The staff super friendly and helpful. The rooms comfortable, clean and with beautiful views. The hotel property breathtaking. The views from the hotel, words can not describe. The food was really good. The hotel was able to provide information for a driver that I could hire. He was amazing, friendly, patient, helpful and just a nice guy. I can not thanking enough for all his help during all the travel we did while in Quito with my family including a 4 y/o boy and a 83 year grandmother. His name is Mr. Vadim.

We had a short but very pleasant experience in this restaurant, which is giving you a wonderful view of Pululahua Crater and the town in the heart of the crater. Food is amazing and the staff very attentive. Very close to the Mitad del Mundo Monument.
