We decided to eat at Cafe Mosaico on our recent trip to Quito on the basis of Trip Advisor reviews, and we were not disappointed. The food was delicious, and eating out on the terrace overlooking the city lights of Quito was wonderful. The staff...More

As if the view from the open terrace wasn’t enough, the food and drink selection is outstanding. We were so pleased to find hot wine on this rainy January day. My Thai curry was outstanding and they offered decaf coffee for dessert

Like others have said, it was worth going for the view. We made a reservation to sit on the terrace. Food was good and staff was kind.

A great view and and a varied menu make this a fine choice to watch the lights come on over the hills while having an early dinner. Reservations are recommended for the tables with the best views.

Service 100%. View 200%. Food 85%. This is a traditional restaurant in Quito that invites guests to enjoy the sights and a good meal. Highly recommend.

This is the best place to have a drink and a snack on the outside terrace in order to enjoy the capital's dusk

Perched on a mountain side, try to get there at dusk when the lights come on. Good nachos, Greek French fries, quesadillas, good salads/soups. Be careful, easy to order too much. They take plastic.

As most reviewers here will agree, the most spectacular part of this place is the view. We were a small group on a Thursday night with no reservation and we were quickly accommodated. I had the burger and did not enjoy my meal. I felt...More

Visited Cafe Mosaico for lunch on Thursday Oct 25 (opened at 1pm). When I walked in and up the stairs there were about 5 dogs that greeted me. I wasn’t sure I was in the right place so I walked outside, until someone in a...More
