Our guide Paul had recommended us this restaurant. The meat was amazing and we had a fancy dinner just the night before we flew to the UK. I highly recommend the quinua risotto.

Although located in an exclusive residential part of town, somewhat out of the beaten path, this modern restaurant has a vibrant decor and menu typical of Argentina. The quality of food surpasses the Ecuadorian cuisine and we enjoyed very much all that we had ordered....More

My husband and I ate there last night and tried the degustation menu. Food was above average, however it lacked the creativity that we were expecting. Service was great. Enjoyed going into their "wine cellar" to chose our wine. While it is a bit out...More
