San Agustín Heladería - Eating in Quito - LikeALocal Guide

Why locals love it?

This is one of the most traditional restaurants in town, famous since more than 150 years for preparing the fruits' ice creams in a bronze pan called "helados de paila", as well as for its appetizers and delicious plates such as "seco de chivo" which is goat meat with a sauce made of beer and "naranjilla" fruit.

Why you should visit it

This is the oldest restaurant in town founded in 1858 and is still a charming place with a 19th century ambiance, furniture and Colonial art. The best area is in the second floor where you can seat next to a beautiful balcony decorated with geraniums. The food is wonderful.

Special tip

During the week, at lunch time is crowded, so it is better to reserve in advance.
