    The service was very slow. It took 75 minutes to get our appetizers of empanadas and soup. Plus another long delay to get our main course. We ran out of time and were unable to try their desserts.

    Food was good. Presentation was "instagramable". The gigantic group of foreign students explain the online positive reviews. The Cuy was very well done, crisp skin and very wet seasoned. Everything else in the dish was for composing the presentation. I'd probably go back to taste something else.

    We went to Miskey twice during our short stay in Quito because the food and service was so good the first time we went again. We can recommend their Cerviche de Camaron and the chicken dishes. The service was excellent.

    We had the best meal ever at Miskay--in seven visits to Quito, and probably 50 meals in restaurants! I had a very tender and juicy chicken breast with mushroom sauce and my husband had a trout filet. Both very tasty. Service was very quick, until the restaurant became crowded, and checkout was slow. Try coming early or late to avoid the crowd.

    The restaurant had great food, everyone loved what they ordered (Fritada, Trucha a la plancha, Ensalada de Pollo). They also brought out an amuse bouche before dinner that was fantastic. Service was attentive without being cloying. The desserts were fantastic and we had a view of the festivities for NYE including fireworks, house music and vuidas.

    We had a great time at Miskay on our first night in Quito, the food was excellent - we particularly enjoyed the cerviche. However, the thing that made it special was the service and the attention that we were given. All of the staff were so helpful, keen to explain everything about the food and the Ecudorian wine, sharing with us details about the history, culture and provenance of the food. The restaurant is in a lively area of the city but the fact that it is on the second floor meant we had a good view of what was going on in the square below and the noise levels were ok. We would thoroughly recommend Miskay as a good starting point for Ecudorean food and a true representation of the friendly people that you meet everywhere you go.

    After checking on TripAdvisor and our guide, six of us went to this restaurant in Plaza Foch. I read that at this lively area, you have to be alert for pickpockets, etc., but we had no trouble. We ate rather early as we had a plane to catch in the evening, so we were the only customers. This restaurant seems to be run by a group of young people who are passionate about serving Ecuadorean food at its best. It didn't disappoint. Can't recommend it more highly. We took a group picture, and I took a picture of the chefs (through the glass into the kitchen). We had a trio of ceviche (shrimp, squid, octopus), each in slightly different broth. Someone had soup, someone the goat (he thought it was the best goat he had ever eaten), someone had fish, and we had a salad.

    Delicious dinner at a local favorite. Amazing food presentation and taste. Wonderful window view if the busy square below. This restaurant is truly a gem! I had the white fish whole my husband had the pork tenderloin. We finished our meal with the figs, cheese and cinnamon ice cream. The ice cream did have a strange texture but that is my only contrary comment.
