We were there yesterday. The staff is super friendly. The menu is small, but what they offer is great. I had a t-bone-steak. It was like I ordered it! Defently a place to visite again.

Waitress suggested the burger- which was akin to biting into a meat desert. I understood what they were going for- with the aioli, the onions incorporated into the meat, the partially melted cheese...however, the restaurant failed to execute. The meat was dry, the fries were underdone, but at least the beer was cold. The inside of the place is the... More

Dios No Muere is a gem of a little place in the oid town of Quito. Several tiny floors connected by a steep staircase. Only a few small tables per floor. Very friendly service and nice food. Had excellent beef. Very eclectic decorations. Very much enjoyed our time there.

TripAdvisor reviews and proximity to our hotel got us there, but the food and atmosphere brought us back. Darling little place tucked in a very picturesque alley! We were surprised at the menu not being very "local" (not typical Ecuadorian), but the food was exceptional and so we overlooked that!

When I can't make it to New Orleans I come to Quito to get my New Orleans "fix". Po' boys and barbecue shrimp. Over the years I have never had a bad experience at Cafe Dios No Muere. Mathieu runs a tight ship and it shows. Sit back, listed to some jazz and enjoy.

Café Dios No Muere is located in San Marcos, one of the best places in the historical center of Quito, it is also close to La Ronda and Plaza de Santo Domingo. The food is a rich fusion between Louisiana's Cajun cuisine and Ecuadorian traditional cuisine. The mix of these two types of cuisine is amazing. We have visited Café... More

The location is nice as well as the space. However the food quality is rather poor and the price far too high with respect to the quality. It might be a nice place for a coffee, but there are several farbetter alternatives for dinner or lunch.

We stopped by for a quick break and to refresh. I ordered a black tea with cold milk separately (in perfect Spanish), my partner ordered a cafe mocha. Although the waitress seemed to accept this she then returned to retake the order, and we once again explained what we wanted. 15 minutes (15!) she returned with the wrong order. I... More

This place can be found behind the old monastery of Santa Catalina. Here you can taste some influences from the American South. The Shrimp was delicious. Very comfortable and warm atmosphere.

The place itself is really unique and cozy. The service was a little hit and miss and to be fair the waitress was new and hadn't worked in a restaurant before but that wasn't a problem. My dish was off the main menu and was good. However, my husband ordered the fillet mignon. Whilst waiting for this there was a... More
