We ordered a few appetizers which took at least 45min to arrive at our table. The hamburguer sliders were good though not fabulous for the price. Drinks were very good, though we never ordered a second round because the waiter was out of sight. I´d say there are better places to eat and drink in Quito.

The food is great for being a sort of modern buffet style, and the items to order like eggs Benedict are of the greatest quality and presentation. There is... More

One of Quito's best bars, great ambiance, good music and fun people. Food is not the protagonist, but is a great supplement to a great list of beers, wine and drinks.

We love to go there, sit at the bar and order a couple of tapas plates, a bottle of wine and it makes for a great evening. Lots of young people frequent the restaurant

Possibly the greatest lounge bar/restaurant that has been launched in the city. Still not the best in the world. Cozy, fancy, but don't expect it to be NYC level.
