being served nearly raw chicken. But the balance of my food was very good - as was the food served to the others in our group. The Ecuadorian ceviche was delicious - prepared with fish cooked with heat, instead of the usual "cooking" with acid from limes. And was fun to try it with all the local toppings like popcorn and dried banana chips. The dessert cart was extensive and very visually appealing.
I was here with a group of seven on the day before The Day of the Dead. The place was very busy with a lively local crowd - which was fun for people watchers like me. And they were offering the specialties associated with this celebrated holiday - a light bread shaped and lightly frosted to look like a person and a spiced purple drink.
The wait staff were attentive and gracious.

There were four of us traveling together. Our hotel recommended we eat here for Ecuador food! Excellent service, very good food and we enjoyed the amuse's before our meals. An Ecuador Fold group played while we ate. Beautiful flutes, stringed instruments and drums. All playing softly and a very nice touch to the evening!

We went here on the recommendation of our Tour Rep as it was only two blocks from our hotel.
The people who were already eating appeared to be locals and there was a bigger party upstairs we could hear.
We were immediately seated and passed menu's and shortly after our order was taken. Our Tour Rep had said that not as many people talk English as in Peru and the waiters did not speak a lot of English but through the pointing finger approach we ordered our food and drinks successfully.
The waiters were polite and friendly, and service was good - very laid back I would have said rather than rushing you through your food and out the door as soon as possible.
We really liked our food and both had classic Ecuador dishes - fried banana with a main - yum :)
The live strolling band came shortly after we had eaten our bread and they played the pipes, drums, little guitar in traditional dress. Music was soothing and we even bought their CD!

We really liked this place, but we were only in Quito for two nights and the next night we had visited another recommended restaurant in the late afternoon and didn't want another big meal - otherwise we would have gone back.

PS - there was what looked to be a local family having a meal there also and it must have been for the young girls birthday because they bought her a slice of cake out with a candle in it - and then - much to her embarrassment - got the band to play and sing happy birthday - but this was the longest happy birthday song I've ever heard - poor girl!

A very large group of us showed up unexpected as they lost our reservation. But they made it right and set up for a table of 20. Our meals were great and the staff keep the food and wine flowing. What started out badly had a good outcome.

We asked a few locals who we'd gotten to know, one a dr. and the other an ex- tour guide which restaurant they'd recommend for us to try local food and this was the one they recommended. It wasn't far from where we were at all so that was nice. The decor was very inviting, our service was excellent and we really enjoyed the food! I think we ended up going there 3 times during our week long visit. All of us enjoyed it, my husband and two kids who at that time were 13 and 15. We tried several restaurants in Quito and honestly, it was our favorite because it hit all three markers for us- decor, service and food.
