Celebrity Cruises selected this excellent restaurant for our group's dinner

A very attractive restaurant with excellent food, especially considering a group of over 100 was being served. My choice of appetizer was the ceviche, which is cooked: fried shrimp and sea bass in a salsa like sauce. The main was veal shank, in a pool of puréed potatoes and sauce. The dessert trio... read more

Small intimate restaurant. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. For those adventurous I would recommend the brain. It is like foie gras but much more delicate. Also Guinea pig The fish is tender and fresh. You are greeted at the door by and guided through the offerings for experience to be remembered surprising the cost unbelievably low... More

We had dinner here with a group. First let me say the service was excellent. Food was delivered in a timely manor and drinks were- constantly refilled. The Blueberry drink is an Ecuadorian highlight, yet it was awful here. The ambiance is sterile with low ceilings. It was so noisy you literally could not hear the person across from you!... More

We started with pisco sours before moving to the "wine store" in the restaurant to select a bottle of wine. The food was excellent, the best meal we had in Ecuador. The service was excellent, making it easy for us to enjoy a leisurely dinner. Recommended!

We went with our group on a Celebrity cruise tour. The restaurant was touted for its wine list, but he list we were presented (for an extra charge) was not very extensive. Good food (I had lamb) well prepared, and good service for a place where, essentially, 100 people show up at the same time. Very modern interior. Moderate noise... More

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 one... 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
