This is a very nice restaurant with some of the best views of Quito. It sits up in the Panecillo hill which is how we ended up there. It was a great way to end the day, after visiting the monument and watching the sunset we went there for a nice dinner of very good food and wine. The service was good and the staff very nice. After dinner they were cordial enough to call for a taxi for us which took us back down to our hotel in old Quito.

The view is great from the restaurant.
The food was good, but I actually got sick afterwards. Could be the altitude or a bug, or the food - who knows.

It was really cold when we were there (October), they kept opening the door to the terrace, so better bring a sweater or jacket. We asked them to close the door to the terrace, but they didn't seem very happy with our question.

Service isn't great here, average.

The food was good but not worth the price. You're obviously paying for the view here which is spectacular. The restaurant is very nice but the service is lacking.

First the good...the view was beautiful. There were 11 in our group and the ones that ordered appetizers said they were quite tasty.

Now the bad...the food was horrible and after two bites of my filet I couldn't eat any more. The service wasn't the best and the restaurant is very expensive.

We knew it was going to be expensive and we were OK with the price but I was really hoping for a dinner that I could eat. I left the place hungry.

Pim's wasn't our best dining experience in Quito. It's the only restaurant on the Panecillo, and the prices reflect that. The food is good, but not THAT good. The restaurant has a great ambiance -- other than the awkward 2000's pop rock hits blaring the whole time, making it confusing. Not worth it - Cafe Mosaico offers better views, better prices, and better food.
