This is a very good restaurant, which (as a New Yorker) I feel comfortable saying. I dined here in September 2016 having the Ribeye, and my girlfriend having the Filet Mignon. The steaks were cooked perfectly, and seasoned well. The cherry tomatoes were exceptionally tasty, and most of the vegetables are grown in the restaurant's garden (according to our waiter).They...

Excellent dinner here. What I really liked was the smart ambience of the place and the fact that the dining area is split into a number of levels which makes it feel more intimate. Nice g and t while sitting at the the bar too.

Have the 8 course with wine pairing. Fantastic presentation and with local flavors and is executed very well. Definitely the fanciest restaurant we stepped into in Quito, but they didn't seem to mind that we were I jeans and hiking boots.

We had the 8-course tasting menu. The food was interesting a beautiful. Very typical sort of modern French-culinary inspired twists on the natural ingredients of Ecuador. For $100 per person in Ecuador, the restaurant's tasting menu has very poor value, and is quite overpriced. And, there aren't drink pairings for the meal. For $100 per person, the least a chef...

Ecuadorean food in an outstanding restaurant. The menu is a modern take on traditional fare. Everything we tried was delicious. We would like to return and simply sample all the starters. They have some amazing wines to compliment the menu. Perhaps, best of all, the staff really adds to the experience. And, the price is right!

In summary, very good food at reasonable price, at least for Western Europe standards. The service is good and the place is passable. The reservation system simply does not work. I had reserved for 9 pm and at 9.30 there was no solution in sight. I had to resort to inform the chief waiter that in five minutes I'd be... More
