“Disappointing food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2013

We went here based on the TA recs and were pretty disappointed. Sometimes there are things on the menu that are just off so maybe the other food here is ok but the lasagna was terrible. e didn't expect super authentic but there was no tomato based sauce to be found anywhere, the lasagna was gummy and overall almost unrecognizable as a lasagna. The salad had a hot, tomato based sauce on it (weird) and though the lettuce and vegetables were fine, it was so strange with the hot tomato sauce on it that was ironically missing from the lasagna. Overall nice service but the food here was terrible.

“"Slow" Continental Cuisine with a Flare!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

Lunch recently on Sunday was a leisurely affair starting with spinach soup, a new addition to the menu, and excellent. This was served with a small sprinkling of cheese on top and bread sticks. I had a couple of glasses of red wine but, beware, after 4 pm on Sundays in Quito, you cannot drink alcohol and only beer and wine (I believe) with food until 4 pm.

This very tasty and hearty soup was followed up with a pasta dish of shrimp in a tomato-based sauce with a hint of spiciness to it. This was an excellent choice for the meal but a huge platter which was shared in the end with my partner. But maybe the pièce de résistance was the dessert! Let me try and describe it - 2 pancakes filled with crushed oreo cookies and smothered in dark chocolate with slightly tart uvillas (golden berries) split over everything and a somewhat sharp passion fruit sauce and a dollop of vanilla ice cream! It was to die for and also shared (huge), making a fabulous ending to an already outstanding meal!

I was not rushed to get out of there. On the contrary, it was a very pleasant leisurely lunch and definitely a place to re-visit to try some of the other continental "slow" dishes that sounded so appealing, including a very adequate selection of vegetarian items. For those that drink, I am told that there is a grand selection of over 100 cocktails! And last, but not least, service was always with a huge smile!

“Achingly slow!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

We ate at Suzette on a Sunday night, when alcohol is not permitted in Ecuador (travelers take note!). Perhaps it was just a bad night, but it took forever to get served, and the dishes were not exactly as described in the menu (e.g., a dish that was supposed to have two crepes only had one). Foolishly, we ordered dessert, but it, too, took forever. Although we didn't eat at any of the other restaurants on Foche square, we'd guess they were a better bet.
