Lovely French restaurant close to our hotel. Food was excellent. Service was excellent. Ambience was lovely, everything you could hope for. We (two couples) ordered a bottle of wine before dinner, and about the time we finished the first course we realized there would not be enough wine left for the second course. So we asked to see the wine... More

We went there based on the HILTON recommendations and for some reason many of the nearby local places are closed on Thursday. We were the only customers 8 pm, and no one else showed up during our time there. The food is fine but prices rivals that of those in the US (appetizers >10, main courses >20, USD). I would... More

It is a really nice place hidden in Quito. They say it is an expensive restaurant, not really. But the price for food it is one of the best. We had fois-gras, French onion soup and lobster bisque, for main course it was rabbit and veal. Soooo good! One thing the main course dishes was a little salty (maybe chef... More

Went back after a long time and still impressed. Service quality depends on the waiter knowing or remembering you. Other than that, excellent choice of Ecuadorian and international appetizers, seafood or steak, whatever fancies you at the moment. Prices are on the expensive side, but well worth it.

Took some colleagues from work and they loved it. Service was spot on, waiters were fast and make very good recommendations. The shrimp are good and very well cooked, you have to try them, but the winner was the crab without a doubt. Would recommend this place without a question.

Rincón de Francia has been one of the best restaurants in Quito for almost 40 years. It is a hidden "quiteño" gem, frequented by very demanding quiteños who place more emphasis on food than location. Classical french cuisine is executed to perfection. Make sure to try Sesos a la mantequilla negra (Brains in black butter), the escargots, the lobster termidor,... More

I chose this restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews, and I was not disappointed. The beautifully appointed interior reminded me of an exclusive club. The white-table cloths, elegant and professional service were outstanding. The food was exceptional (we both had Corvina) and there were many options on the menu that would appeal to any taste. This restaurant is on the... More
