Possibly the worst restaurant in Quito. Outdated, tacky, poor service, food almost inedible. Wine cellar a joke...new ones purchased and laid out on a table. Young staff know nothing about the wines. Owner is friendly for the first two minutes. Could not get out fast...More

We had a fantastic family dinner. Excellent attention from the owner who took care of us and made good recommendations. Good local food and pretty unique restaurant. You felt at home. The only problem was that we followed the owner’s advice for the wine. We...More

But more than that, a must-do experience. A 200 year old house, restored to a proper degree to replicate the ambiance of 19th. century Quito. A diverse collection of paintings, mostly from local artists, adorns the walls. Furniture is time-correct. The cellar deserves a special...More

We went to this quirky restaurant last night. I won’t dwell on what others have said about the collection of art and artefacts, including empty bottles, that surround the guests. But, as others have noted, there were few other guests, and no others in our...More

I am a well travelled businessman and i often wonder why owners of establishments do not always take clues from reviews. I hope this will make a difference. This restaurant nestled of a quiet street in the old city is an explosion of all senses...More

This restaurant is located in a funky old mansion in the historic district. The walls are covered with the owner's art collection, with varying themes and styles in each room. Instead of picking a bottle of wine from a list, the owner offers you a...More

My husband and I had Christmas Eve dinner here so the menu was set. We may have enjoyed it more had we been able to select our meal. We had made a reservation for 6:30 and when we showed up were told that dinner wasn't...More

Definitely worth a visit! The walls are covered in artworks, and every surface contains some kitsch object, or a bottle of wine. After choosing our mains we were invited into the wine cellar to choose our wine. Then given a tour of the artworks. It...More
