Quite simply- amazing food, amazing service. Perfect balance of flavours in the food, a superb balance of traditional Ecuadorian cuisine and international flair, and attention to detail from the wait staff. Chef Kevin even came out to chat to us at the beginning and end of our meal. A definite highlight from our 6 week South America honeymoon and the perfect last meal in South America.

Wow, we've been in South America on our honeymoon for over a month now and sampling all the different foods we can.... This place beats every single place and leaves all the other foods far far away in the distance...
I wish we could just live in a purpose built crawl space under the tiles in the kitchen just so that we can breath in the fumes of this truly magical place. A perfect balance of flavours, particularly the eucadorian ramen-highly recommend!

During my recent visit in Quito, I found this amazing and stylish restaurant. The design was simple and stylish in cooperating the local art and culture. And the food was just superb with local ingredients! Chatting with the neighboring dinners at the restaurant, we were all so impressed by the personal touch we felt by the staffs there. I will highly recommend any visitors in Quito to try Somos. Btw the staffs there can communicate in English very well.

It’s an Ecuadorian contemporary restaurant blending Ecuadorian food with fine dining in a friendly alluring environment. Empanadas were great and then I had Poncho Guayus Amazonico: Steak tenderloin with a chimchuri of fermented guayusa and llapingacho, an Ecuadorian potato pancake. Steak was good, but llapingacho was awesome! Signo, one of the owners, and a great host provides a personal touch to the visit.

They have perctly fusioned the traditional food with new flavours and created new dishes mixing ingredients from all over the country! it is amazing!
