It's a hike up and pricier than the average but the views from the terrace here are just lovely. I had a tasty thai curry and we shared a nice bottle of wine, service was good and seeing all of Quito lit up at night...More

Enjoyed a couple of visits here during my Quito stay. The views from the cafe are quite amazing. Definitely a chill place to enjoy easy conversation and drinks on the upstairs level. Street level features music, which may/may not be to your liking.

Café Mosaico is one of a few restaurants on a hill in the museum district. It has floor to ceiling windows to afford diners with dramatic views of the sunset. And the food and service are very good as well. We arrived on the spur...More

The view is simply amazing. The food is average, nothing special but not so bad. Ask for a table with view, otherwise it is not worth going. In the evening take the cab to go there, as it is uphill and you don't want to...More

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.
