What People are Saying
“Great views over the city, with the Basilica in pride of place. Elevated above the old town and about a $2.00 taxi ride the cafe serves great coffee, cakes, snacks and main meals. Well worth the journey up hill. First restaurant we have found that is not only dog friendly, but includes a menu for your furry best friend, and of course comfy beds for them to while away their time. Having wondered around the city we have found a hidden gem.”
“My daughter and I were on vacation in Ecuador and discovered this wonderful restaurant. The owner was so nice and what made him even more wonderful is that he had rescued so many precious dogs that were there in the restaurant and we could spend time petting and playing with. I highly recommend this restaurant not only for the amazing view, but also for the good food and the wonderful people!.”
“I would 100% go back in a heartbeat. My husband took me here for my birthday for drinks. We had a flight to catch that evening and the owner opened early just so we could enjoy the beautiful view and play with the dogs. The view honestly cannot be beat. Add a room full of sweet dogs to love on, delicious drinks and a super friendly staff and you have the perfect setting. Go here! you won’t regret it!”
