We had dinner here on the recommendation of our taxi driver. It was the most expensive, least impressive food we ate during our entire trip. Yes, we visited during the "off season" but this place was DEAD! If you are looking to eat in Plaza Foch, I'd recommend walking the square and checking out the scene at the moment.

This someplace special, not for every night's dinner. Prepare to study their beautifully done menu. It's literally a book.

And some VERY imaginative work by the chefs wonderfully presented. Foodies will love the "Mouth of the Wolf". In fact they do have wolf on the menu, supposedly.

Every dish was distinctive, very nicely seasoned, flavorful and fresh. Some interesting spicing and amazing sauces. Unusual mushroom dishes.

Nice wine list with pretty reasonable pricing. Good, attentive service with a sense of humor. English capable.

This would be a super place for a party and is located in the most happening night area in Quito, the Zona, especially for the younger crowd.

Might have to walk a bit for parking, but the scene will be amusing as you make your way through the bustling street scene.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Quito. I even take my teens here for a treat. The place in itself is delicious. I love the colors, the hambience, the music.. I am always happy to go back.

This place is fun, unique and so popular in Quito. The restaurant has different rooms with unique decorations. A must for foodies. Unfortunately, we just stopped for drinks and they were good.
The menu is actually a book, they put a lot of effort on it.
