We enjoyed a meal for four people here. The drinks were good value and yummy. The pizza we ordered was enormous and the pastas were fresh and super tasty! Meals were very reasonably priced and massive. What a great little spot.

We stumbled across this quaint wee restaurant when staying just outside the old town. There wasn't much else around (on the cheaper side), but this place was amazing. It was full when we arrived so we sat up at the bar which was fine. The pizza is giant and so good! And the pasta is the best we've had on... More

Entering this place which isn't the easiest to find ( don't give up ) you get greeted by a friendly lady that could be your best mates italian grandma. The menu is the perfect size and has some 5-6 pizzas to choose from beneath pasta as main dishes. The pizza is very thin and crispy and there's free cheese oregano... More

The restaurant is very cute and small (holds maybe 20 people). The cuisine is Italian and the prices are very good. That said, my pizza was okay, though my friend ordered a pasta that she greatly enjoyed. The chocolate cake portions were very small, though the presentation was very cute.

This is a simple, small place that seems to get quite crowded in the evenings - and for a good reason: The pizza is tasty (if not really in an 'italian way'), prices good and staff is very friendly. I cannot exactly say why, but I enjoyed myself very much in that place. It simply has a good vibe and... More

The atmosphere at Cafe San Blas is just as wonderful as the food! A quaint, sweet, family-run restaurant that whips up some of my favorite Italian food! Their pastas, sandwiches and pizzas are delicious, and the smallness of the restaurant allows for conversation! I definitely recommend Cafe San Blas with friends, family or even just by yourself!

Cafe San Blas is a tiny and fairy basic place with only 5 or 6 tables. We popped in for dinner whilst staying locally at the Secret Garden Hostel for dinner and were treated to some fantastic freshly prepared, home cooked food. We shared vegetables San Blas as a starter, which was a delicious plate of grilled veg, followed by... More

We came in late on a Monday night to Quito and we were sort of starving when we arrived. I quick search of the best restaurants in the area revealed this spot. We walked here from our hotel and we found it easy enough. The streets around are well lit if some what empty. We were seated by a friendly... More
