I went with my family for a traditional tea time! The food is amazing! We ate several desserts (including sweet and salty from international and Ecuadorian cuisine). Also, you should try the traditional chocolate hot drink that comes with cheese or "higos"!

Really a nice setting, the food was amazing, the service excellent, a bit pricey, but worth every penny I say The one comment I would say, it’s AC is set to freezing level, making the food instantly cold on arrival
