We only came there to have some ice cream and although it is home made, we weren't really impressed. Prices were okay, the place was clean, and the staff were friendly.

This Heladeria is well known and written up in just about every travel book and magazine available. The food is great including many of the traditional Ecudorian plates as well as the ice cream. The atmosphere is lively with an excellent waitstaff.

Come early before the lunch rush and enjoy lunch on the upstairs balcony al fresco! Excellent food and service. Ceviche is to die for. A charming atmosphere in the great old town of Quito.
