Cafe Vista Hermosa: "Go for the view NOT the food" Vista Hermosa - Centro Historico Tip by Kindra

    by Kindra

This is a 2 story restaurant set in a colonial building in the old town. The rooftop is the allure- lights and heat lamps illuminate your way through dinner as you enjoy the splendid night-time views of Old Quito.

The food is overpriced and not good- even their Locro de Papas sucks and is pricey. I had the lasagna which was tasty but small. The dessert, a chocolate cake, was yucky, dry and had nothing on it. Boo!

If you cant get a seat on the roof, forget it, we were subjected to awful live music which was more like a guitar-tuning session.

Favorite Dish: Just get a drink and enjoy the view!
