A relaxed and elegant Sunday lunch with super courteous staff. Delicious Prosecco cocktail. Met the new chef who recommended the new dishes in the menu. Wonderful fish and pork dishes. Highly recommended.

We had been looking forward to dining at the restaurant in this hotel, but were quite disappointed! The staff were poorly trained and didn't speak English well. Everything we initially ordered was "out of stock." The items we ended up with were tasteless. Not a good choice in Quito I'm afraid!

This restaurant lies within a lovely hotel in a central location. It is a large room, but has good ambiance. The service is relaxed -- nothing like Zazu for example -- but acceptable for a long meal. The food was lovely, and the menu includes several vegetarian options. Everyone in our party enjoyed their meal.

My husband and I visited on a Monday evening and it was very quiet but relaxing after a day of hiking. We both had the tasting menu with paired wines. It was a great way to taste a range of Ecuadorian cuisine but it just wasn't on par with other tasting menus. The llama was not available which was disappointing... More

This hotel restaurant resides in an old mansion right by the San Francisco Church. Though the menu is not very extensive, every dish is exquisite. Compliments to the chef! The setting and service is impeccable.
