  The resto- its looks funner in person!

This is more expensive that your average resto in Quito, even more than the average tourist resto, but you can find decently-priced plates that are deliciously, fancy and filling, and of course if you stick to Cuba Libres or Mojitos, the drinks aren't too pricey either (around $3.50 each).

The ambience is what makes it great. It is all glass so you can enjoy people watching from the safety of your table or pick a more intimate couch in the lounge area for just drinks and appetizers. It is full of colour, trinkets, mirrors, paintings and other decorations that give it a lively atmosphere- the funky electro-lounge music helps too. I found the service good, people friendly, the food good. Had lots of fun!

Favorite Dish: Various delicious appie dishes involving mushrooms (plus pesto, parmesan cheese, walnuts), really good mojitos, steaks and a veggie pasta dish made out of string potatoes!

Address: Reina de Victoria and Garcia Lazardo
Price Comparison: more expensive than average
Directions: In the Mariscal Area 2 blocks north of Plaza Foch. You can't miss it- its a big square glass building full of people and colour!
Price: US$11-20
