The Magic Bean is a tourist-focused restaurant in the popular La Mariscal district of Quito. I ate dinner here with my family, which was a good-not-great meal. The prices were a bit high and we didn't love the wine, fries, or locro (although the meats were good). Overall, it was an okay meal, but far from my favorite in Ecuador.

I was so happy to find a place with true, vegetarian options that we went back for a second time. The menu offered a nice variety of brunch items (pancakes & french toast which looked amazing) as well as smoothies, pastries, salads and lunch items which included a quinoa burger, pizza, pasta and other burgers/lunch items.

The service was quick and friendly. Dining was on a nice covered terrace (casual).

Highly recommend!

This place had ok service but one of the worst omelets I've ever eaten. The chorizo was not chorizo and it was very dry, however the ambiance is nice and it is in a good location. Also, quite overpriced and don't forget they charge 10% service PLUS 12% tax on top of all the prices, as opposed to having them already included in the price like most other places around town.
