Ecuadoran dishes prepared simply and incredibly flavorful along with an outdoor seating area that offers great people watching in the Old Town of Quito. The ceviche's were especially good. A great spot of respite between sightseeing including the magnificent Jesuit church alongside it.

Food was very good, reasonable price and no fear of contamination as they use bottled water for everything. Located in the heart of the Old Town Historic area. Pleasant staff, clean outside eating area. Latte and cappuccino's are wonderful.

Our tour guide brought us to the store section. Wow we were so impressed. Several rooms with high quality and unique things to buy that were actually made in Ecuador. We bought masks, bowls and other handicrafts

This is not only a restaurant, but a gallery and shop selling typical Ecuadorian art and souvenirs. It stretches along tunnels under the cathedral and is such an unusual place that it is worth the visit even if you are not interested in buying/dining.

We were part of a group and our guide brought us here so that we could try Ecuador dishes and have coffee. Nice to try savoury and sweet things. Interesting toilet.
