Found this place by strolling around the historical centre looking for a place to play some cards. The place is small and cozy. It has a few tables divided over 3 floors. You can sit outside on the terras but when the sun goes down it can be a little cold. The food was simple and nice. Friendly service!

We loved this place so much we went twice (usually we wouldn't do that!). Great food for reasonable prices. House red wine is delicious and owner is lovely. The building is quaint and cosy, we enjoyed the vibe in there. They have daily specials which were good too - definitely get the passion fruit cheesecake if it's on the menu... More

We loved this place, so much so that we broke our eating rules and ate here twice. The drinks are reasonably priced and yum. Over our experiences we enjoyed the sandwiches, gumbo, tuna and quinoa patties. All our meals were tasty and the owner is really friendly! The three stories and candle lit tables are super cute. Highly recommend

Very welcoming and friendly! A place to gather and enjoy the food. I had a great time meeting the other patrons. I ate here more than once during my stay in Quito. I ate inside once and on my second visit, I ate in the outside seating area.

This restaurant is tiny inside with two tables per floor and some on the alleyway outside. There is an emphasis on Cajun cooking and the food was good and reasonably priced for Quito. Unfortunately we got a forged $20 bill in our change so remember to check....this could happen anywhere of course.

Don't bother with this place for the food- we had a hamburger and vege sandwich $18.50- certainly not anything to rave about... maybe the other foods, onion soup, risotto etc may have been better choices. Nevertheless, the atmosphere is gorgeous as you sit on the street and enjoy the breeze. The cafe itself is very cute, a trip to the... More

My wife and I were in Quito two months ago and we fortunately discovered this restaurant gem. I was in Quito again last week, and when I returned here for three dinners in a row they were again all excellent. I wish that this restaurant were closer to my home.

A Rough Guide recommendation brought me to this quirky cafe today and it didn't disappoint. The two ladies working were both very friendly, the vegetarian sandwich I ordered was HUGE and tasted really fresh too unlike most of the others I've had in South America. The inside is really cool just a bit dark on a nice day. Would definitely... More
