This is a popular place for local families and larger groups. Very kid friendly. Got a table relatively quickly in 10 minutes or so. On weekends lines are enormous. Very disappointed in the ribs which were fatty and absolutely smothered in such. Too much sauce. in summary if you can get a table quickly and have a varied party you... More

If you looking for a applebees like in ecuador this is a similar better version with ecuadorian food! Prices a decent and food is tasty! Waiters don't speak english or have the best sense of humor. Over all great experience and get there early for a table on the weekends!

After shopping stop, be served by the owners themselves and allow them to spoil you with a great variety of meals. From breakfast to dinner. Only fresh brewed fruit juices and decent coffee

I have visited this place at least once a month for the past 6 months, we usually get lunch here with my coworkers to celebrate birthdays, and I must say I have never been disappointed! The place is clean, portions are big, service is fast, the food is good, and the best of all... it has a reasonable price! Usually,... More

Went to the San Luis Shopping Location around 11 am. Plenty variety of meals but they all are basically elaborated, service can definitely be better, the place is very noisy.

I ordered the fried shrimp which arrived after everyone else at our table had finished their food. While is was wonderful I would not return due to the slow service. The plate came with a flavorless potato salad and a regular salad. This was a return trip to this mall restaurant but being in Quito there are much better choices.

Food is good, I really like the meat with cooked potatoes and salad. The desserts are also very good, personally I like chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream.
