We were brought here by our tour guide and I noticed his lunch was provided free by the restaurant--always a warning sign for me. The menu is extensive and it's location, right in front of the church is perfect. The terrace is pleasant, although the...More

Tianguez is located underneath the Franciscan church in Old Quito. Great setting, though the subway construction obscures part of the view. Eating on the patio allows for fantastic people watching. Our meal was quite good - I had a local potato based soup that was...More

Loved the location and the surroundings. The staff was very friendly and you also had the opportunity to stop at the souvenir store on the way out. The food was excellent and had many options.

A lovely setting in the great setting of Plaza San Francisco and probably just above the remains of an Incan palace. Great choices but not really animated even on a Saturday evening. Waiters polite and helpful. The so-called goat is really lamb but not tender...More

I don't understand why this is thought to be so good. The empanadas mixed plate was 2 varieties and I felt undercooked. The nachos was decidedly dull. The corn chips were broken making it painful to dip into what were 2 uninteresting dips. The hot...More
