This is a place frequented by upscale locals at lunch. It has a colorful decor, efficient waitstaff, and delicious ceviche. The plate I ordered consisted of 3 different ceviches each served in a tall shot glass and 6 different empanadas, Nice sampling that didn't leave me feeling too ful for the remainder of the afternoon.

This well known local joint is the perfect place for locals and visitors to enjoy some of the best local recipes. The menu is equipped with something for everybody. As a foreigner visiting Quito I tool the safe road, Churasco, some "empanadas" and a local drink "chicha". Food was good, service was even better...bottom line...I recommend

During lunch you will find locals there, in the evenings it seems to be mainly tourists. They serve traditional Ecuadorian and Latin American dishes, and the food is good, though not outstanding. I have eaten there many times during visits to Quito, and I return because of the location (close hotels) and predictability of the food. Service tend to be slow.

Nice place in order to have dinner without paying a great amount of money, however, the food was not fantastic but OK.

When we went for dinner there were about 50 american tourists there. This will may be a plus or a minus for some. The place is catering for large tour groups.

The food was average and certainly on the higher end of the scale for this type of meal in Quito. Servings are quite large and we struggled to finish a soup, fried pork feet and fish in coconut sauce. There was live music which added to the atmosphere.

Servers were proficient in English and the restaurant accepted credit card. There was also a doorman who helped flag a taxi. It cost us $3 each way to the Hilton Colon (but probably should have been $2). There is a 10% service fee added to the bill.
