This restaurant was a little hard to find as it had changed location from what it said in our guide book. However, we happened upon the new location by chance and stopped in for the goulash which was very good.

We did not care for the included (American) breakfast at our hotel so came here for a Cappuccino. It was good. Service was OK (took their time, but maybe we needed to adjust our expectations of efficiency).

Delicioso desayuno, nutritivo y fresco. Pan integral hecho en casa, Muesli y yogurt. Café. Gran atención aunque es mejor hacerse pana de los meseros antes. Delicious nutritious breakfast, great home made bread, its good to call attention and be friendly to waiters to get great treatment, (just a tip there)

We pounded the streets looking for somewhere to eat and found this place. Wasn't too sure about it at first but we had a lovely meal and it wasn't too expensive

The Austrian-type food is simply deplorable. Salads are decent, however, and ambiance with classical and Latin jazz background is refreshing. Café con leche is superlative, with pitcher of hot leche to the side. So stop for a coffee and forget the rest.

This place is a good option for those looking for a break from the local fare. They have nice fresh salads and good hot drinks. I came in for the set lunch menu, and they were willing to make a few alterations to accommodate my vegetarian diet, which I greatly appreciated. The prices are of course a bit higher than... More

Service was quick and I enjoyed my 'gringo breakfast'. A little pricey for local Ecuadorian standards at $6.80 for that breakky, when you can get something similar for $3.50 elsewhere. However, you're paying for the pleasant decor, good wifi and ability to sit and relax somewhere comfortable while you read a book or work on your computer, for example. Can't... More

Excellent place to stop for afternoon sweets, coffee and drinks. They have full bar service and a great menu with many selections. You can order a full meal, a sandwich, breakfast at any time and just about any beverage. I loved it. I will definitely return to have "Goulash" that was on the menu. The cakes and tortes are very...
