Worst mixer drinks we have ever had in a bar. Ordered cuba libres.. almost no rum and the coke was stale and old with no bubbles. Do your self a favour and find a decant bar tender who takes care of his customers.

This cafe-bar is a little Quito gem. The grilled shrimp with sea salt and it was fantastic. Others reported the burgers to be the best they've ever had.

I had the octopus soup, and a red artisan beer. Great flavors. The decor is cats and posters of early rock and roll artists, the waiters are friendly and got us taxis to ride back to the hotel. The neighborhood is full of bars and cafés, young crowds.

We visited the new Cat's location in La Floresta on a Friday night. Cool vibe, good food, good artisan beer selection. Alvaro, head chef and owner is a jewel, loves food, loves life, enjoys taking care of his guests. Will be back again and again. Try the Quinoa based prawns

We had a wonderful lunch here with a couple of friends, and we all had the Ceviche. I had the mixto which was the best ceviche we had in Quito. We also had their dessert sampler which was to to die for and just the right size for sharing. The chef came out to make sure all was well with... More

Went to try the place out a few weeks ago. Had the seared tuna with quisotto which is a risisotto made of quinoa. It was amazing, really creamy and flavorful. Went again the other day and ordered the same thing, it was good but the service was a little slower that day. They also have great beer, andes brewing company,... More

I have only visited Cats once, but it was very enjoyable! Laid back and casual it kind of reminded me of "beatnik" style. I had a Chelada and a "hot wine" to drink and we ordered the octopus (or squid?) appetizer. Sorry, I can't say for sure which because my friend ordered it for us, my Spanish is pretty terrible....
