I've been here 3 times now. I've only tried the vegetarian burgers and I can tell you they're sooo good! Once my friend ordered pasta and the pasta was really hard because it was old. Another time: same thing. And why I give El Maple 3 stars is because all 3 times the service sucked. Clearly the people who work... More

The bean stew was amazing!!! I am not a fan of "mock meat" at all, in fact I usually cannot stand it. I did not even realise the bean stew came with vegetable meat but I am sure happy it did!!!! The beans were amazing, the vegetable meat was delicious, the rice was cooked to perfection, the salad was lovely... More

This was a great vegetarian restaurant in the Mariscal part of Quito with local beer and Ecuadorean food. Large plates which form good value for money

The best Seitan (wheat gluten) dishes I've ever had. The Sustento Del Altiplano and the Menestra were unbelievable. If you're vegan/veg in Quito, definitely make the trip!

The set menu lunches are excellent, plentiful and well priced whereas the dinners were underwhelming.

Lunch for $6.00 was priced well. There was a good selection of food for lunch, a set meal and the food was spiced a bit. Several courses and the staff was attentive.

I was staying nearby and happened upon El Maple, lucky me! I ended up eating there many (many) times because I enjoyed the different daily menu so much. A tasty, filling 4 course lunch for $6! I really enjoyed the appetizers, really flavorful, and the entrees were a nice combination of items. The service was prompt and friendly, and it... More
