Sajsana Restaurante – Upscale Trendy

//Sajsana Restaurante – Upscale Trendy

Sajsana, located in the old seminary next to the new cathedral could be a fine dining, boutique restaurant in any big city.  The atmosphere and décor are clean and sleek with a few, well thought out architectural features from the past.   The service is attentive without being smothering.  They offer outdoor seating on their balcony that overlooks a large courtyard.  Sajsana offers not only full bar service but also an upscale trendy bar that you can sit at to enjoy a cocktail and appetizer.  The food and the presentation are well thought out.  Their specialty soup is a combination of three Ecuadorian soups served in a triple bowl. If you are trying for the first time, try their Ecuadorian ceviche.  It is quite beautiful with a wonderful presentation.  If you are a ceviche lover, be aware that this one is orange juice and tomato based.  While there, make sure you take the circle staircase to the roof for a unique view of the domes.

    I agree very nice restaurant, but the outside seating is quite awkward, too far back from the table to eat comfortable. I have never seen you find anything wrong with anyplace on any review, unless I missed it and I read most if not all.

    The Captcha must be case sensitive third try

      Thanks for the comment. We only had drinks outside before it became too cool and moved in so I didn’t notice the seating being awkward so thanks. And I do make some negative comments. Look at El Rey Del Burrito, Sakura Sushi or Sion Lung. To be honest, If we absolutely hated a restaurant, we just don’t write about it. We worry about the Ecuadorian Libel laws. And yes, the Captcha is case sensitive. Unfortunately, the captcha is a necessary inconvenience. When I stopped it for a day, I got about 100 spam comments.
