Cozy Restaurant in Quito Aug 06, 2012
On a recent business trip to Quito, my local rep took my travel partner and I to where the locals eat and the locals eat at Cats. The entry way to the restaurant is reminiscent of a fairy tale cottage with a small stone walk through a small garden leading to the small door. When you enter Cats the first thing you will see is their bar, crowded with a vast classic rock CD collection, low ceilings and memorabilia of varying themes placed by their large local and international fan base. When you make a right turn, there are two small dining rooms, one up, one down, both of which feature a small wood burning stove, which takes the chilly bite out of the air even during the summer, when the temps still get down into the low '50s. With small tables, soft wood paneled walls and a retro art theme, the best word to describe Cats is COZY. The menu is truly Latin, with fresh seafood and meats prepared under the tight supervision of the proprietor Alvaro who will come by your table and ensure your satisfaction in either Spanish or perfect English. Doesn't take much to befriend him, in which case he will either send you over a recommended appetizer, or complete your meal with a tasty dessert or after-dinner drink on the house. The food was amazing - I had a mixed grill platter, which show-cased about 7 different types of meats all grilled to perfection and accompanied by a sweet pasta salad and arroz a ala Paella sans the meat and seafood. This is definitely not a formal restaurant but where people go to wind down after a tough week, get a good late meal and drink with old and new friends. I went twice on my last trip and will certainly go back again for more to see my new friend Alvaro.
