Well prepared, flavorful

We came here as part of a group dinner. The appetizer was shrimp in a pepper type of sauce but was not spicy, on a bed of avocado cream. Very tasty. The veal chop was a good portion, very tender, cooked perfectly. The creme brûlée was the best I've ever had. I'm not a creme brûlée fan but this... read more

La Gloria is an outstanding place for dinner in Quito. The food and presentations were very well done. Everything was tasty and the service was exceptional. Would return there any time we are back in Quito.

We dined at this unhealthy eating establishment on Sat evening June 6 on a $15,000/12-day Quito/Galapagos land/cruise vacation. In the following early morning hours, became violently ill. On two separate visits to Celebrity Cruise's Xpedition ship's doctor, she confirmed it was, food poisoning. Others on the ship also became similarly ill. And was the ONLY common link within our party... More

We were brought to La Gloria as part of our pre-cruise package prior to our Galapagos cruise. In spite of the fact the restaurant greeted and served about 75 folks arriving at the same time, the food was quite good and the service excellent!

We ate here twice while in Quito. The first time the restaurant served the 95 passengers who would embark on a cruise to Galápagos. All meals were excellent, served hot, and very quickly. When we returned it was a quiet evening for the restaurant and again the meals for four of us were quite good and the wine selection also... More

We ate here before a Celebrity Cruise to the Galapagos. Group of 94, but the service and food were as outstanding as if we were the only 2 there.

Wonderful restaurant with excellent food just steps away from where we were staying. The wait staff was very professional the ambiance was great. Wanted to go back but it was closed for a special event when we were back in town.

We dined here as part of a group tour of ~80 people. Taking our order was a little slow to start, but the food and wine were promptly delivered. Regardless of being essentially a banquet, the meals were fresh and very tasty. Would suggest giving it a try.

We went with Celebrity Cruises before our Galapagos cruise so the menu was not the regular one. I had the beef shank which was incredibly tender and nicely flavoured. My husband had the organic chicken which he found to be tasty. For dessert there was a trio of some small desserts, one of which was a cheesecake. The food was... More
