“Really good food.. too expensive for what you get”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2013

Muckis used to be a really hip place back at 2000 or so. If you wanted to see TV people that was the place to go back then. Nowadays it is still a really nice restaurant located 40 minutes away from the city at Ilalos volcano. Food is really good, prepared with organic vegs and first class ingredients.

Anyway, it is certainly one of the 5 most expensive restaurants in Quito, and a fun fact is that you wont even know until your check is there, as some things dont have prices in the menu. I think I would try other restaurants before this one, as for the same money in other places you will get similar food, service, and a lot more wine.

“Great food, unique place !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2013

I have been there once, living very near from the restaurant. It's pretty hard to find and there is absolutely no indication whatsoever to help you find it ! After month of looking after the 'famous' place, I finally found it walking around hazardously ... Place is nice, old house, uniquely decorated with souvenirs, photos, rare objects,etc... There is no paper menu, they offer you what's on their mind that day ! Price are high, but correspond to quality and quantity... I really liked the experience, though given the prices, would probably never get back there ! Unless invited ! 8-)

“Excelent food, Superb service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2013

I've been to this place a couple of times. The food is great, the service as well. It's a little crowded on weekends and the only downside is the price, which is high but the food is worth it. It felt nostalgic as I ate for the first time in many years German cuisine. What they didn't have was non-spicy Süssesenf (as it should be) but I still love the place.

“Good and relaxing place.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2013 via mobile

They always can offer you a special wine.
The food and quality is superb, service very helpful and always friendly.
I cannot say anything wrong about this restaurant.
Try the Langostinos al Jerez. ...the best.
The place itself is a little hard to find.

“Always GREAT”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2013

I have eaten there for more than a decade and I have never been dissapointed! Allthough they are pricey they serve such good quality food that I would recommend anyone to have a fine meal there. Mucki should be proud of her children as they do a great job to fill up her shoes. If you are deterred by the location, just give it a try. You will not be dissapointed.
Good athmosphere. Outstanding service. Delicious food.
