The best of this place is the food. It's a nice and small, very clean, good service and good environment. It's well located but it's not easy to park, so it's better if you go walking. The price might be better (around 25USD/dish), but in my opinion the quality of the food compensate so.

It's located on the corner of 9 de Octubre y Carrion, in Plaza Borja Yerovi. We had 8 different dishes there, and everything was like heaven in my mouth. The best dish were... More

The foie gras was amazing, one of the best in Quito. It's a small very cozy atmosphere with personalised service by the chef himself. Delicious, great service and nice environment! Will come back for sure...

New decor attracted me back to the Plaza Borja Yerovi and La Petit Pigalle, which serves some of the best cuisine in Quito. Certainly the best French here. The steak tartare rivaled that found in California's wine country or Paris itself, and was accompanied by pommes frites chips with a hint of garlic and salt. (Portion should be shared and... More

This is a charming gem of a place located in a quaint neighborhood that delivers, Although they are a little bit more than most restaurants in Quito, the superiority of the ingredients and preparation certainly makes up for the slight price increase. Ana and Gabriel are delightful and I would recommend this to anyone looking for a change from Ecuadorean... More

Cuisine: French. Location: You will find it in an old house in La Mariscal; we went at night and the place was pretty quiet. There are a couple of parking spaces available on-site. Their attempt to resemble the old Quartier Pigalle in Paris has failed; it seems they just put up in the walls a bunch of things taken from... More

I had Lunch today at Le Petit Pigalle. I recommend ordering the Calamari as a starter and the Lamb Chops for Main Course. The food at this place is outstanding! Up there with Zazu! The Restaurant's decoration is very ugly and needs an uplift. The wine list is poor, and lacks options. Expect to pay US 50 for each Person.... More

What a great experience overall. We tasted several dishes and as picky as I am , I was impressed. Its certainty not cheap but for what has been served its not an issue at all. Very good, recommend it to all.
