Great owner, took our orders himself and made good suggestions. Beautiful setting and gardens. We sat outside, where the over head heaters kept us warm.

By far this is the best restaurant you will find in Quito. To begin "El Carmine" the chef and owner of the restaurant is one of the friendliest persons you will find, additionally he will find a perfect meal for every guest. The food is delicious!!
