Description: Our restaurant is located in Quito's Historical Center on the second floor of Sucre National Theater, Cultural Patrimony from the XIX century, an expression of renaissance classicism. In the entire second floor it is located the most important restaurant in Quito, THEATRUM Restaurant & Wine Bar that offers an extraordinary menu of the vanguard Mediterranean cuisine. One of our emblematic dishes is the Grilled tender octopus with mixed greens, cherry tomatoes, garlic tossed in pesto vinaigrette. Our classic Ecuadorian prawns on the grill with avocado mousse and tomato fondue.

“Good food, good service if not full, great (theater) atmosphere.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013 via mobile

We were surprised by the interior by far the best we saw in Quito. The food is very good. The only thing that could be better was the service, we ordered wine and had to wait a long time for our glasses to be filled. There was a 25 person party next to us and draged the entire attention of the waiters. Not a big deal but after all you expect a bit more for the money you pay.

“Quite an experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

This was a wonderful eatery in a city where the food was amazing. The decor is quite over the top in a theatrical way - hardly surprising, given that another part of the building is a theatre! The service is quite formal, but friendly nonetheless. The food is a modern take on traditional Ecuadorian food, and is beautifully presented. And all for a price that in Europe would be at least doubled!

“Lunch at Theatrum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

We had a truly amazing lunch. We didn't know what to expect and had, by far, the best meal we had in Quito.

“Piano Concert”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

If by Theatrum is meant the Teatro Sucre, I was very impressed with this elegant building, and the amazing pianist whom I saw play there. The concert blew me away. Loved it!
