“Historic place”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

Delirio is a restaurant with decent food in a very old family house that brings us back to the XIX century. Nice patio for a nice eve out with friends.

“Only restaurant open in the vicinity”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

We were only in Riobamba one night and looked for recommendations off TA. To be honest this was our third choice, but we could not find the other two preferences. We were advised by our guide that little happens in a Riobamba after 7.30 p.m and even on a Saturday evening this was definitely the case around this area. The restaurant has some history attached to it re Simon Bolivar, although have not researched whether true or not. It has a very pleasant garden at the front, but everyone was eating inside. A somewhat eclectic mix of artifacts on the wall combined with an eclectic music choice made for an amusing evening. Local artists also played for which they were looking for a token of appreciation. The food was average. Interestingly ordered a half bottle of wine which came with a line on it. Great marketing ploy as the wine was good and we ended up drinking the whole bottle. Would not have been our first choice, but as the only place around worked out ok for us. Recommended if you can't find anywhere else that is rated higher by TA.

“Average food in a very nice ambiance.”
Reviewed 17 January 2014

We had dinner here. So we had to eat inside, because of darkness/ temperature. We can imagine that lunch in the pretty courtyard, with a lot of atmosphere is a very pleasant experience during daytime.
But the ambiance inside was very nice also.
The service was good. It was the one and only time in Ecuador that the waiter sold us half a bottle of wine, by bringing a full one and pointing out how far we could drink...
The food was diappointing average. In this location with such a great atmosphere we had expected a more sophisticated dinner.

“Cosy place with history”
Reviewed 25 December 2013

We enjoyed a fine Meat dish beneath the fireplace served by a very attentive waiter. South America's history breathes from thye walls.

“overpriced and not particularly good”
Reviewed 16 September 2013

Meh. The place looks good but is extremely expensive for Ecuador, and the food was absolutely ok, but not special at all. Would not go here again.
