Everything we ate was delicious. We ordered a mix of empanadas for appetizers. Each was different and excellent. The breaded sea bass was full of flavor. We had the traditional mixed plate with tripe, goat, steak and rice. It was so good. The traditional Ecuadorian potato soup was rich and creamy and full of flavor.

Authentic and delicious, explained well by staff so we pushed our comfort zone without going overboard. We ended up eating here three times it was so good.

We made reservations ahead of time, because it was one of the few restaurants open for dinner on Christmas. We had trouble finding the place (the website gave us the sister restaurant in Guayaquil). A short cab ride from the central business district. There was a mix of locals and tourists. White table cloth but mid-priced. Wine selection was limited,... More

We went to the restaurant with my family. Seven people in total. Even though there was still a lot of capacity we waited for almost 10 minutes to be attended, one hour to receive the entries and almost two hours to receive the main dishes. The food was good but the time we spent didn't let us enjoy the food... More

Some years ago this was one of the best traditional food restaurants in Quito, but in my last visits I have been disappointed for quality of dishes and a service not friendly enough. Prices aren't appropiate for some options in the menu.

No one spoke English on our first visit but we managed just fine. We shared the large appetizer and it was fine for lunch. We returned for dinner on another night and were again served fine food.

Visited on recommendation of hotel staff and from reviews on trip advisor. Wanted local food but not much choice available apart from a multiple variety of sea bass!! In end opted for filet mignon - medium. It came out near blue. No apology although they did replace. When bill came they added 10% service charge and then expected to keep... More

Our group of three visited the restaurant in March. Our host wanted to take us to a restaurant that serves local culinary treats. The restaurant was clean, beautiful interior design and all dishes were very nice indeed. Both seafood and meat was avaialble and very South American displays of food. Unfortunately I do not know about the price range since... More

The food is heavy and overpriced but tasty in a sort of basic way. It was recommended by our hotel and it has the feeling of a faded tourist trap that survives on recommendations from concierges. The decor appears fussy and old-fashioned and the lighting is god-awful. but the service is efficient and pleasant. We enjoyed two shrimp dishes and... More
