We had our first dinner in Quito at Vista Hermosa. We decided to walk up from our hotel, which was a hike, but as long as you take your time it is OK - well worth it when you get there! The food was a bit overpriced and average, but really you go there for the view, and that certainly... More

This establishment has indoor and outdoor seating but outside is its namesake. Went about 1:00 pm for lunch. It was me and another party of 8. Service was slow, I had to loudly ask the waiter to come to my table after 20 minutes of inattentiveness. The food was so, so like you would get in a chain restaurant. I... More

We had lunch there and ate a variety of Ecuadorian dishes along with some magical fruit drinks. Service was good and the view from the terrace was beautiful.

Beautiful view of the city, however the steak had a different taste and the service was not very good.

A local recommended this spot to my friend and I for lunch - it was nearby and had a great view they said. The view was awesome - really great overview of Quito and on the rooftop patio there is a great view of the angel that overlooks the city. However, I was very disappointed with the food. The chips...

I booked the reservation at least a month in advance. When I arrived, the table was to the side and the excuse I recieved was " Other people booked in advance"...!! Meanwhile no one was sitting at any other table. It was annoying to have the parking garage attendant come to our table to ask us to move our car... More

The restaurant has a lovely setting, it looks nothing from the entrance but there is a lovely indoor area and a roof top area with wonderful views. The menu is fairly limited, quite basic but the service was good and the staff helpful. Everything was very clean. There isn't much traditional or local food, more pizza, pasta and some meat...

Service average but should be on your list for places to visit. The old fashioned lift in the vuilding was an experience in... More

We went here for a drink in the rooftop restaurant. The view is amazing. They have only one option for a glass but several expensive bottle options. The wine was okay but the complimentary snacks were nice. However we waited 20 minutes to see the menu, our food and snacks came quickly but waited 30 minutes for the bill -... More
