Taste The Flavors Of Quito’s Old Town

Food was tasty and my server was friendly and accomodating. Didn’t have to wait too long for a table for 7 people. This is the ideal place for celebrations and romantic dates. Because I am obsessed with views, Cafe’ Mosaico was one of the places I really wanted to visit and it was no mistake. I have to say I risked it to get there on foot.

A picanteria is a traditional lunchtime restaurant in Arequipa, Peru. But chef Mauricio Acuña has brought that tradition to Quito and added his own modern, elegant twist. He’s kept the low-key style as far as décor goes, but he adds organic pops of produce to each dish, creating colorful works of art. Characterized by the minimalistic and serene environment of its lush green, plant-filled dining room; this restaurant is the first gastro-picantería in Ecuador. This diner is a contemporary twist derived with sophistication, presenting the best Ecuadorian products combined with an innovative cuisine under the supervision of Chef Mauricio Acuńa.

I always get the mejillones as an appetizer . The fish is always cooked really well. This restaurant is stuck in time, but it retains high standards and the old charm it always had. Had a lovely dinner here last week. This is a very old school classic French restaurant, which I prefer over fusion.

The restaurant is pet friendly, so expect to see dogs inside the restaurant . The food is decent and a bit pricey. They offer vegetarian and vegan options as well as non-vegetarian options. The restaurant caters encantada spanish to locals and tourists alike. I recommend an evening here for a date night, a group hangout, and to entertain guests from abroad. Somos has somehow found a perfect balance between Ecuadorian and French cuisine.

I went try the ceviche and although it was really delicious and nicely served it didn’t make a meal. The cuisine offered here is classic French and the restaurant serves dishes like lobster bisque and steak with peppercorn sauce. They are quite known for their series of grilled fish and other seafood options which come along with matchless tastes and presentation. Dishes with the hints of South America in the form of ceviches and Spain in the form of Spanish omelets are also a specialty of this place. Considered to be one of Quito’s premier Italian eateries, Carmine Gastronomia is a fine-dining, elegant restaurant that serves all the favorites.

Octopus parrilla and the excellent Pisco Sour cocktails are only some of the highlights of the menu. Not so hungry, then grab a basket order from our happy hour menu & wash it down with a local beer. The beach bar sun loungers and picnic tables are perfect for daily happy hour mingling with old friends and new alike. Followed by dinner in the open-air dining room, enjoying the live music as you watch the priceless show of nature’s unforgettable sunsets over Jost Van Dyke.
