This is by far the best experience in food that i had in Quito, wasnt any extravagance or overfilled, or too sassy... No was the magic in food, the pleasure of being serve by nice service staff... I was like taste of my childhood came over my mouth in just a single bite of meal. You really should try it!

I did not like this restaurant, they do not have a good variety and what they have did not like. The service was ok. The ice cream was industrial and We did not like

Marcus is located at the back of Universidad San Francisco, the place is kind of classy and the dishes are very well presented but the portions are kind of small. From the minutes you taste the food you realize it is made of top quality ingredients.

Having lunch here was great, I came with some friends that are from Ecuador and I couldn't believe the quality of the food. It was really good and made by the students of this episode university.

I was treated to the best hospitality and food that Ecuador can offer and for the friendly Ecuadorians, this is really saying something. Locro, Quina and wonderful Chilean red wine. Not to say that the company was great.

Cumbayá has actually quite a few good options for dining, but there are very few places where you can enjoy great food and wine served in the way they are supposed to be served. Although I have been to Marcus about 3 or 4 times, the "Mollejas de Ternera" (sweetbreads) with risotto that I had last Friday are my reason... More

The waiters had no idea about the menu or about the appetizers they were serving. One waiter told me that the tarte tatin was a chocolate cake. The sea bass I ordered was overcooked and under-seasoned. For dessert I had cheesecake and it was too thick and it lacked flavor. I had two two bites of each meal. You can... More
