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.

The place was almost full but got a table. They have a kids corner called KIDS Vaco y Vaca, that offers an excellent service for your kids, always assisted. The servers were very helpful and bringing everything on time, except when asked for the bill... then it took them 15 minutes and 3 calls to actually settle the bill. What... More

This review is on the El Bosque food court restaurant. Very good food: tasty, well prepared very big servings and side orders (you might need a doggy bag!), Service was very good and prompt, always under the manager's attentive eye. If you don't like waiting in line, just get there early.

Always I see long lines there but I don't know why. The food is nothing special or have a special taste. Is only fried meat, or things you can cook on a hurry at home Honestly I don't like it and not worth the wait for more than an hour in the line.

We were checking out the Quicentro Sur Mall and it was time to eat, so we cruised the food court and there were a lot of options so we decided to try Vaco y Vaca. We were greeted and seated promptly (it wasn't prime time lunch hour so it wasn't as crowded as other people have mentioned). We ordered the... More
