Description: For over 50 years at "Fabiolita" we have been preparing the most renowned Seco de Chivo (Lamb Stew) and Sanduches de Pernil (Ham Sandwiches) in Quito. Each morning we prepare all of our products with love and patience and we only use high quality and fresh products which we get in person at the local markets.

Great goat stew for $5 - cash only. The juices were also great and can be trusted (didn't make us ill) - loved the pineapple with ginger and mint. The seating is pretty limited - recommend sitting outside if possible - the back is a little claustrophobic. The staff is really nice and the location can be beat.

When we find a place we love, we tend to go back and we went to Fabiolita once or twice a day for the six days we were in Quito. We loved their fresh juices - I tried at least 5 different ones - fresh sandwiches and hot chocolate. The staff was very friendly and the location on the plaza was perfect, with built-in entertainment.

The owners are fourth generation, carrying their grandmother's legacy of the best Seco de Chivo in town. Service is great and the ambience is second to none as you are sitting right in the heart of Quito at Plaza Grande. They also have an elaborate selection of local craft beers to wash down your your seco, sandwich or chicharron.

Went in for a sundowner aperitif and was welcomed by a French-speaking Carlos, owner of the place. He took over the business founded by his grand mother, half a century ago. The cakes served are home made and the place is simply impeccable. Service is professional and Carlos will happily give you some insider tips on this amazing city.

In the middle of the town and in front of the central square. Tiny coffee shop with some food (lamb with rice $5) and some sandwichs. As all restaurants in Ecuador, small dishes with nice flavor. Not good if you are hungry
