Our family had Christmas dinner at Barlovento. We were visiting Quito on the way to the Galapagos and stayed at the JW Marriott. Barlovento is 2 blocks from the hotel. There was a mix-up in our reservation and we actually arrived after the restaurant was closed. However, Bernarda greeted us and told us that they would be happy to stay... More

Barlovento Alta Mar has recently opened it's door at their new location La Pinta and Amazonas. The restaurant is located on a beautiful cultural heritage house from Quito! The ambiance is formal and casual at the same time. Upon arrival you are greeting by the owners and seated. Nice bar. Fireplace for casual meetings, private dining for business meals. Overall...

We ate at Barlovento twice while staying in Quito because the food was so good. The dining room is nicely arranged, the staff is very pleasant and our meals were delicious. It was strangely empty both times we were there. But then again, every place we ate at in Quito (all highly rated on TA) was pretty empty. Maybe it... More

Took some foreign clients there. Terrible, terrible, terrible. We ordered some turnovers so they make get a glimpse of Ecuadorian gastronomy in a bite. They brought out a plate with several mini empanadas, half frozen, half fried. Not freshly made, they probably bought them in the supermarket. We complained but nobody seemed to care. Now I understand why place was... More

We had eaten in this restaurant a couple (few?) years ago and though it was "so-so". Since our nearby target turned out to be closed (and we were tired from hiking up above the teleferico) we popped in not expecting too much. I have no idea when the improvements were made, but now it is first class and not too... More

This was my second time in Barlovento. The first time was very good...this time was excellent! Started with empanadas and ceviche, and finished with corvina (a type of sea bass). The service was excellent and the whole dining experience was great. Will be returning on my next visit to Quito.

Ended up here kind of by accident for lunch. The ceviche with shrimp and squid and avocado was great. Have never had it served with tostado corn and popped corn. Yummy
