My husband and I have been in Quito 10 days and have probably come here at least 5 of those 10. The location of Manantial is great and so is the food. We love that there is a traditional meat option and a veggie option as well. The food is always fresh and is only $3 for an almuerzo -... More

We ate here several times while in Quito. The lunch specials are a very good deal with a nice salad bar buffet. We also ate early dinners here. Very reasonably priced and great mock meats. Very friendly owner.
