After reading reviews my husband and I found our way here after walking around Quito old town for five hours. It was 14:40 and lunch service ends at 3pm but we had no trouble whatsoever when we asked for a table. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating, the interior was classy and the food was fantastic.
We were presented with a very extensive wine menu although we weren't looking for alcohol and chose the hibiscus and coconut lemonade, which was deliciously refreshing. Rather than go for a traditional 2/3 course lunch we opted to select authentic dishes from the 'tapas' section. Don't be fooled by the term tapas though - when our four choices came we knew we were going to have issues finishing them. I can't remember all of the names but we had the empanadas (but without pork), the trout with corn & plantain, potato locro (soup with avocado/cheese/corn) and cameron (shrimp in a cold spicy soup). As suspected we didn't eat everything but they kindly boxed up 3 of the 6 empanadas for us to take away. We had no space for sweets but what we saw on the adjacent table looked devine.
As other reviewers have said, it is expensive for Quito but the tapas gives a less costly option than the traditional a la carte or tasting menus and was an excellent way of trying some local dishes in exquisite surroundings.
