This place has been recommended by friends who like mexican food. I went on a weekend with my family and we had to wait for 10 minutes for a table because the place was full. Nevertheless, the wait was totally worth. We ordered pork ribs, tostadas, chimichanga, alambre and tabla ranchera. The tabla ranchera was the best choice in my... More

This is a must go to restaurant while in Quito. Such nice ambiance for a Mexican restaurant. Great service! Fabulous good! Great margaritas! We had the mixed platter with a bit of everything. All of it was excellent!! Just a tiny sign outside so don't miss it!

The place is nice is quiet big, the floor staff is friendly and quick. The menu is no so big you have the Classic options; tacos, enchiladas, quesadillas, etc. The food is alright no so authenic mexican, more close to tex-mex. Not cheap but worth give it s shot.

I had heard a lot about this place and I was highly dissapointed. The place is nicely decorated, the food is a rip-off and the service is terrible. The sopa azteca was ok however, it missed a key ingredient in it, the lime! it makes a huge difference in flavor. My flautas were terrible. The nachos we ordered were a... More

This place is really nice and clean. On the weekends you have a host, he makes you feel comfortable. I found this place cozy because it represents the Mexican culture and its history. The Sopa Azteca is EXCELLENT AND VERY DELICIOUS. Quito doesn't have a parking spot. In Cumbayá they do. In Quito there are buses running through Eloy Alfaro... More

This is definitely my favorite Mexican restaurant in Quito. My favorite dishes from here are the chicken fajitas and Chimichanga al pastor. All margarita flavors are delicious too (Maracuyá and tamarindo!) However there was one unfortunate incident at the restaurant, I recommend to never order a pitcher of Margaritas, because one time my friends and I ordered 2 pitchers of... More
