Sunday eve, little restaurants open. Found this place through tripadvisor and we were amazed by the night view of the city. Food is good and service was fast as there were few guests.

Food was allright, service was good. We had to wait long for our cocktails cause only one waiter could make them.

By far the greatest view of Quito, with excellent menu offerings and the best coffee in town. A must visit for locals and foreigners alike to enjoy coffee or a full meal while witnessing Quito in its fairest light.
