Our opinions are divided. On the one hand, it is a nice restaurant with a cosy ambience and cozy lighting (not exactly common in Ecuador, the land of bright energy-saving lamps and neon tubes). On the other hand, the food was a disappointment. The bruschetta...More

Cozy, outstanding location with a very good pizza and clever dishes. As a European it‘s difficult to find good bread and what you get here as a side on your table feels like being home.

We want you to feel special when you are here, we want you to expect that everything, every last detail, is taken care of for you, so that you area welcomed, relaxed and at ease and most of all happy. That's what's it is all about. We don't want to impress you we want to comfort you and make you happy.
