We had a wonderful dining experience here. We were going to sit on the roof top but as usual, the dark clouds roll in every afternoon so it was quite nice to be inside and here the rain pounding on the tin roof while we enjoyed lunch. Service was excellent (it helps to speak spanish). The putenesca soup was a... More

We arrived just before sunset and had our choice of tables on the roof level. A heater kept us comfortably warm. We were able to watch the city light up as it got darker and it did twinkle. The view was surreal. Clouds rolled across the surrounding hills. Oh yeah the food...the cheese empanada was very good. I had the... More

My hotel recommended this place for my last night in Quito...not much from the outside, and the entrance is just a hallway with an elevator and a bit of a carnival feel with a fake, life sized man behind the podium. I buzzed the elevator (stairs were closed off), and the elevator attendant arrived to take me up, up, up.... More

I suspect this restaurant was recommended to us because of its views (though we had asked about the food quality). Overall, our lunch was good. The smoked pork was good but slathered in a sauce and the lamb stew, though good, seemed to leave our table underwhelmed. The filet mignon steak with pepper sauce was judged the best dish on...

The view from the terrace is incredible at night, and I thought the food was good; I had the chicken with mushroom sauce with fries on the side. The canelazo was kind of thick and a little strong, but still good. The prices were reasonable, and the waitstaff was very friendly. Keep in mind that Ecuador is on a similar... More

Wonderful view of the old city, very romantic. Good food and wines. Try out the steak on a sizzling hot stone - it's a must!

New year's eve dinner here. Plate of cheese and cold cuts: pood poor food, plastic cheese and plastic cold cuts with supermarket pickles. Main course (seco de chivo and steak on hot stone) ok. Bottle of wine 54dollars, delivered on the table with the price-tag of 13dollars. Cheap quality wine. Miserable table setting: not even a candle nor tablecloth (new... More

Place is in the middle of old downtown Quito. We were there for a late dinner, despite the fact, it was a little cold, we asked for the table on the rooftop. Had a nice view of the city, especially the Nativity scene of the Panecillo. Food was fair priced and portions are big. Ask for the set of empanadas... More

A really neat Restaurant serving some Ecuador's finest dishes on the rooftop with a panaramic view of the City of Quito. Try the Papa con quesa Soup.

We went out for a late night dinner with my Ecuadorian family and I can really recommend this place! The view over downtown Quito is really amazing, the service was excellent that night and the food was good! My wife and my daughter had delicious sandwiches, my in-laws had the locro de papas (typical Ecuadorian potato soup) and chicken and... More
