Am so sorry we only stopped for drinks and did not return for dinner.  The service at cocktail hour was prompt and the glasses were always full.  As we sat there, the chef brought a fantastic looking lomo to a nearby table. It was apparently...More

There were only two things that were good about this restaurant: 1. Great roof top view of the Virgin of Quito statue on El Penecillo Hill, and 2. The manager/maître-de was working very hard trying to make up for his waiter's ineptness. Great job manager!...More

The dinner was simply a nightmare. We waited for two hours for our orders. Soups came after main courses which were wrong. No apologies from the waiters. No, no go. Negative!!

We spotted a rear rooftop patio. We didn't eat here. Ricardo provided excellent service and sauvignon blank. Great view of the Panecillo hill.

We wandered down here our first night in Quito, and were lucky to find seating on the patio, and the bar was staffed and ready! We had sangria, beers, wine, and several entrees. Although the food was only average, the view, the atmosphere, the service,...More

My wife and I stopped here for lunch. We climbed several flights of stairs to a patio with great views of parts of Old Town and of El Panecillo, the 100-foot tall aluminum statue of the Virgin Mary. However, the food wasn't very good; the...More

I really wanted this place to be incredible, so the "4" rating is generous, but I understand any restaurant can have an off-night. First the pro's: It was in the really neat "La Ronda" area, convenient to our hotel. It was one of the few...More
