I'm staying at a hotel close by and ask for their recommendations as well as TripAdvisor feedback. Has nice atmosphere and menu selection. Good choice of wines. The food I had was delicious and great service. I would recommend this place.

Very good high quality food at a reasonable price is always a plus. I had the veal shank and it was delicious. See Picture. Service was good, a little harried, but good overall. It LOOKS like they should have a decent wine selection, but alas at the time we were there they either didn't, or didn't want to sell it,... More

We were taken here for dinner as part of our Celebrity Cruises tour package, which would later involve a week in the Galapagos. I had a chicken and mushroom entrée and my friend had that and an appetizer with shrimp. Both very good. We were all given a dessert trio which included a tiramisu, a lemon something, and a blackberry... More

Had dinner here pre/Galapagos cruise and it was excellent. Nice wine list and atmosphere. The veal was amazing and the chicken was very good. Everything was nicely done especially when you consider there 100 people in the group.

We were going to the Galapagos Islands with Celebrity Cruise line and stayed 2 nights in Quito prior to the cruise and had dinner at this very nice restaurant. The restaurant was small but seems to have a nice wine room. I had the veal shank for the entrée and it had to be one of the best! The dish... More

A very attractive restaurant with excellent food, especially considering a group of over 100 was being served. My choice of appetizer was the ceviche, which is cooked: fried shrimp and sea bass in a salsa like sauce. The main was veal shank, in a pool of puréed potatoes and sauce. The dessert trio had lemon, custard and chocolate. The service... More

Small intimate restaurant. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. For those adventurous I would recommend the brain. It is like foie gras but much more delicate. Also Guinea pig The fish is tender and fresh. You are greeted at the door by and guided through the offerings for experience to be remembered surprising the cost unbelievably low... More

We had dinner here with a group. First let me say the service was excellent. Food was delivered in a timely manor and drinks were- constantly refilled. The Blueberry drink is an Ecuadorian highlight, yet it was awful here. The ambiance is sterile with low ceilings. It was so noisy you literally could not hear the person across from you!... More
