“Fantastic view al over the city”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

We went here in March 2013. We aim to go back again today.
The view is stunning.
The day we went was windy, but it is so gorgeous - you feel like you are in Europe.
The waitress was fun, and the food and service good.
Wish they opened Sundays!

As the name says, it's all about the view. Great terrace, with good service and good food. Nice place to enjoy the sunset

“Good Food, Great Views”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

Came here twice on a recent visit to Quito - once for lunch and the other for dinner. The food is very good - ordered the chicken lasagna and filet mignon for dinner - both were tasty and cooked well. The view at night was amazing. Came back for a late lunch - it was empty but the pizza was decent.

Great place in Old Town - it does get crowded for dinner - you should make a reservation btw Thursday - Saturday.

“Condor´s Eye View of Quito”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

You must go at least once, even if just for a drink since you are up-top Quito and can see it all from your outdoor perch on the 5th floor roof. Can be closed so you need to check back if you are foiled at the first try.
The food is just all right and a bit pricey, and there is better fare for less around Quito, but the view is more than worth going for and yes, do bring a jacket or even a rain poncho as it is cold up there with the condors and possibly misty if not downright rainy. There are some of those big butane heaters for open air, so sit next to one if you can. The angelic Virgin of Quito looms far away but presents a striking silhouette against the night heavens.
The service seems adequate, and they take credit cards. The type of recorded music offered seems unfitting for the etheric spectacle but they will turn it down if asked.

“The views alone are worth it”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

We first went during the day - and the place empty. However, the views were awesome and the photographs and memories made up for it.

We then took the opportunity to book for dinner in the evening. It was fantatsic! The foo was delicious, the ambiance superb. It was a little cold, but they brought a heater for us. At night time, the view of the city was even better than during the day. The rooftop bar was seriously quirky and dedicated to football.

Very highly recommended, that's for sure
