Love this place. Beautiful gardens 5 minutes walk away from the bars and restaurants. Rooms are clean and peaceful. Gave 4 stars as on Sundays there is no breakfast or room service provided. If you like cats then this is the place to stay!!

I went there last thursday (march 10th) and they only had vegan and meat-lasagna. It was good. And the juice was ok. But the bread that they served the lasagna with was dry-ish and i couldnt really eat it.

If I am completely honest, this is my favourite place to eat in Quito. Every meal I have had so far has been exactly what I wanted. I always go for the second course of the lunch menu which costs $3.50. You can have the soup/starter as well for an additional $2.50 but I think the one plate is plenty.... More

The server was the worst I have ever had. No welcome at all, she was just staring at us all the time, we had to ask the questions ourselves like where to sit and if they had a menu. Then she couldn't answer a simple question about the menu so the cook came to answer it. It took at least... More

Very tasty vegetarian food (a lot of it is Italian) and for very fair prices. The staff are very friendly and service was good. I would recommend the fucacha, lasagna or even just the main set lunch. The desserts are also very tasty and come in large portions. Really worth visiting!

$3 buys you a full lunch, always fresh and tasty. I eat here every week and never have been disappointed. The place is popular with local office workers out for their mid'day meal.
