The location is just great! You can overlook Quito while enjoying a drink or meal from the balcony. Quality and choice of food was very good and tasteful. Highly recommend.

Food was allright, service was good. We had to wait long for our cocktails cause only one waiter could make them.

Great view, nice atmosphere and simply just 15 minutes walking up the stairs from our hostel. We were there in the afternoon during weekdays and had plenty options to find our best seat with great views :) and the frappuccino was cool enough.

We sort of happened upon this place, looking for restaurant near our hotel, since reportedly we were not in safest neighborhood. Dog friendly place, doggies contentedly sleeping under tables. Amazing view of city, day and night. Food good enough. Mostly gringos here.

The drinks in this place are delicious, the food is ok, but the views are incredible. There's no better place to watch the sun set over Quito, as long as the day is clear enough to see it the sunset at all. It can get...More

Worth a visit, be it for a drink, a lunch or a diner … and for the stuning view. Staff was friendly, service is fast. TIP#1: They don’t mind when you change tables after a better one (read: next to the balcony) becomes available. If...More

By far the greatest view of Quito, with excellent menu offerings and the best coffee in town. A must visit for locals and foreigners alike to enjoy coffee or a full meal while witnessing Quito in its fairest light.
