Only found this place by recommendation of our tour guide - it is set in a pleasant courtyard, up a passageway off the Plaza Grande so very handy while visiting the Old Town. We both had roast beef sandwiches (tasty and filling, on crusty white bread) and raspberry juice. It does have a full menu for "proper" meals as well.

We found this place on a recent visit to colonial Quito. We got a table right away as the place was almost empty. The place was clean and decoration was nice. The place has a good variety of food at good prices, everything between $5-$20. We ordered soups, a hamburger, a steak and a lemon herbs chicken. Food was good,... More

I ordered the lasagna and it was one of the worst lasagnas I've had. It was one layer of pasta sheet with very wet ground beef and congealed cheddar on top. There was even a layer of oil floating on that. It was just horrible, so I sent it back. They gave me bolognese instead and clearly hadn't drained the... More

We stumbled across this restaurant while exploring Old Town. The location was convenient, the food was just okay. I ordered a burger, my husband ordered a steak, and we ordered a pasta dish for our young son. The dishes we ordered were average. The service was not very good. Our waiter told me "no" to two of the dishes I... More

This afternoon I had the worst experience ever in this hometown restaurant. They made as wait more than 30 minutes for a griiled bass and shrimp ceviche. If you are a turist and you want to try some traditional food, please!!! try some of the other restaurants in the colonial area.

We stumbled onto this place, ravenous after a full day of traveling. My daughter ordered hot chocolate which was excellent and a hamburger which was HUGE. My husband and I both ordered steaks that were nicely seasoned with a mushroom sauce, french fries, and vegetables. The waiter was very attentive and patient with my spanglish. All for under $50. It's... More

We stumbled on this restaurant and the beautiful courtyard it is in when wandering around old town Quito. A more than adequate lunch in a very nice setting.

We've eaten there 5 times over a couple of years and always been pleased with the food. Don't be put off by the location in the heart of a tourist complex (though a very nice building is the Archbishop's Palace). The other restaurants in and near the central courtyard of the Palace are not very good but this one is.... More

I was looking for a place to have ceviche on my day through in Quito. I asked the hostess for a recommendation of where to go (ceviche is not on their menu), and she offered the kitchen would make me a ceviche, she said it is such a popular option that people order it (and they make it) all the...
