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

What a surprise: menus in English did not match prices to the Spanish one, dessert menu did not have prices at all! Does tourists pay more? Does the lamb is really from Patagonia (no way!!!)

Really enjoyed our meal at La Gloria - the food was very good, and the restaurant has a wine store inside of it so you can get a good bottle of wine at a reasonable price. It's also not crawling with tourists -- or at least it was a quiet night when we were there. Definitely recommend it.

I have been to the restaurant before. Service is good but tends to be slow at times. The entrees were fantastic - the octopus was great as well as the tiradito, the sauce was the best part for the latter. My main course was good (paella), it was spiced the right amount and well cooked. My companions dish however was... More

Again we were with our Celebrity Cruise Line tour group and this was our evening dinner restaurant. There were at least 60 of us who descended upon the restaurant staff at the same time but they were ready for us. (60 customers at one seating, the manager must have been very happy) We were all seated quickly and the staff... More

Have the prawn ceviche Ecuadorian style prepared at your table, it is heavenly. If you are not a part of them or if you can avoid it, do not go on nights when they have the Celebrity Cruise groups dine. Too busy and set menu only - still great food. Although lovely Diablo - the manager - organized our ceviche... More
