This place is expensive but the food is so delicious. We had 3 tapas for 2 of us for lunch and all were sublime. About $50 including coffee. Definitely worth it for a little splurge - you won't regret it!

We had a casual lunch on our recent trip to Quito. Two mains (duck and pork), 2 alcoholic beverages, 2 coffees and 2 desserts totaled just over $90. Our servers spoke excellent English, explained all the menu items and identified which were gluten free. The...More
