I love this restaurant. The food is excellent and the view of the blue domes of the new cathedral is fantastic at night if you sit outside. The prices are good too.

This place is great! It has an amazing view, relaxed atmosphere and very well prepared food. The owner/GM knows how to run a restaurant. The only downside was our college age male server who made a mistake on an order and we ended up getting the meal for free. The server held it against us when we visited two more times after that. He was rude and slow. It didn't matter though because we had a lovely time but that guy needs to go.

Ate at lunchtime twice this week. Both times seated on the balcony overlooking the courtyard. Great view of the cathedral roof and ideal for people watching. Food is delicious. Ate breakfast of eggs, bacon, etc., on the first visit, and the Spanish salad with grilled chicken on the second visit. Service is excellent. Try the lemonade. Not sure I’ve ever had it that good.

Highly recommend, but this is not cheap by Ecuadoran standards. I would suggest this should be assigned two $$.

A great dining experience. Sat at a table over looking Parque Calderon - lovely. Alexandra was an attentive and personable wait staff. Unfortunately they were out of red wine, ah well - next time! The menu is small but mighty. The pollo saltedo was perfectly seasoned. The mushroom ravioli was creamy and very delicious. The lemon curd pie was divine. Over all a super find, we will be back.
