But more than that, a must-do experience. A 200 year old house, restored to a proper degree to replicate the ambiance of 19th. century Quito. A diverse collection of paintings, mostly from local artists, adorns the walls. Furniture is time-correct. The cellar deserves a special...More

We went to this quirky restaurant last night. I won’t dwell on what others have said about the collection of art and artefacts, including empty bottles, that surround the guests. But, as others have noted, there were few other guests, and no others in our...More

This is an unusual restaurant hidden away down a street in the historic district of Quito. It is a series of rooms with loads of style, the walls filled with paintings and prints adorning every square inch of space. Some of the tables appear to...More

My husband and I had Christmas Eve dinner here so the menu was set. We may have enjoyed it more had we been able to select our meal. We had made a reservation for 6:30 and when we showed up were told that dinner wasn't...More

Definitely worth a visit! The walls are covered in artworks, and every surface contains some kitsch object, or a bottle of wine. After choosing our mains we were invited into the wine cellar to choose our wine. Then given a tour of the artworks. It...More

It was pretty quiet on a Tuesday night, so we got lots of attention from our gracious host. The wine cellar was a bit daunting, especially since we did not want to drink that much - we had a half bottle of recent vintage red...More

Why we were the only people in this restaurant in October I cannot figure out. The food was excellent, the wine cellar beyond comparison. The host could not have been more friendly.
