Cafe Mosaico is really nice, I've been there a couple of times to enjoy the view and place. They offer traditional places and hamburgers too. I suggest them to taste. The big highlight is the view of Quito.

We enjoyed the view here on our last night in Quito, looking out over the sparkling lights. The food was good and very reasonable. I was happy with my locro de papa and onion rings.
