Excellent food - for Ecuadorian standards- portion are also out of the norm in this country. I love the "a lo Pobre" dishes - combos. good prices. My Favorite the amazing Iced Tea they serve!!!...I go there any time I have a chance. I normally Visit the "El Bosque Shopping Center" in Quito

Nice place, food is regular, ...the only thing that really bothers me is that each time I tried to eat there, I had to wait like between 15-30 minutes to get seated ! I don't really recommend it ! ..or just to visit the place and take photos !

I will never understand why people stand in line for several minutes for an empty table. This restaurant is not good at all, and the worst thing is: they have so many people going there that they do absolutely nothing to satisfy an angry customer!

Last time (and last in my lifetime) I went to this place, I ordered a tuna sandwich. Now, when you hear "tuna sandwich", bread, sauce, tuna, tomato, lettuce, onion, etc... come to your mind right? At least it did to mine, considering this sandwich was not cheap and in a cheaper place i get a tuna sandwich like that.

Anyway, the waitress walks in with a bread (wet by the way), tuna mixed with mayonaise, and that's it. It was ridiculous, it was a sandwich i could have prepared myself at home half asleep. When I complained to the waitress about that "sandwich", she said "if you wanted a sandwich with every ingredient you mention, you should have asked the "tuna and egg sandwich" - I don't want egg ,I want a sandwich properly prepared in a restaurant, not in a house kitchen.

Then I asked to talk to her manager and she refused.

Honestly i believe it's disrespectful to serve people the "sandwich" they served me. Of course I didn't touch it, I was so angry for the price I paid and the product/attention I got, I swore never to set foot on that place. So if you're up to pay good money and receive crappy-greasy food (I've eaten there in other ocassions before that, and "grease" could describe it).

Listen to my advise, save yourself many minutes of standing in line to receive a bad product for a wrong price. Don't eat here.
