The Mediterranean (Greek mostly) food is good but nothing outstanding. The draw is the location on a mountainside opposite the historic city which gives you a great view of the lights at night from its plentiful wide windows.

The view from Mosaico is incredible, with its expansive panorama of Quito. When I was there, they also had some excellent live music, the beers were cold, and the service was friendly. The Greek food was pretty average, however. I had some meatballs which were overcooked and with little taste. I would recommend this place for having a few drinks with a date, but not for eating.

So much food! Needed a bit of spice or something. Location is excellent, music is great. I was full and content when done with the meal!

I would go here just for the view, but the food is good also. You can choose from heavy meat dishes all the way to light salads. The salads are fresh and tasty. You can choose small plates to share and the selection is good. The only drawback is that during busy times they don't seem to have a system for seating parties on the terrace (with the view) so be on your toes to not let others push in front of you for a table when it is your turn to be seated. Personally I like the view at night, but bring a sweater or jacket because it can be cool out there. I see others have not liked the food, but our salads and other dishes were fresh and tasty.

If it's your first time map out your drive - even our taxi driver had a hard time finding it. And it helps to know some Spanish - English was not spoken by any of the staff when we dined there.

My husband and I visited the cafe at night. The view is beautiful but the service and food are not good.
