Went back after a long time and still impressed. Service quality depends on the waiter knowing or remembering you. Other than that, excellent choice of Ecuadorian and international appetizers, seafood or steak, whatever fancies you at the moment. Prices are on the expensive side, but well worth it.

We were looking for a nice place to have our last meal of our holiday and decided to splash out at this place. We were well look after as soon as we arrived and our food arrived quickly after helpful consulting with our waiter. Food was delicious and well cooked, we thoroughly enjoyed our evening here. It is expensive and... More

Took some colleagues from work and they loved it. Service was spot on, waiters were fast and make very good recommendations. The shrimp are good and very well cooked, you have to try them, but the winner was the crab without a doubt. Would recommend this place without a question.

Rincón de Francia has been one of the best restaurants in Quito for almost 40 years. It is a hidden "quiteño" gem, frequented by very demanding quiteños who place more emphasis on food than location. Classical french cuisine is executed to perfection. Make sure to try Sesos a la mantequilla negra (Brains in black butter), the escargots, the lobster termidor,... More

I chose this restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews, and I was not disappointed. The beautifully appointed interior reminded me of an exclusive club. The white-table cloths, elegant and professional service were outstanding. The food was exceptional (we both had Corvina) and there were many options on the menu that would appeal to any taste. This restaurant is on the... More

This is without a doubt the best restaurant in Quito. It is quiet and elegant, and off the beaten tourist path. The food is French and local, the service is outstanding and the wine selection is excellent. This is a wonderful restaurant for special occasions or for a business lunch or dinner. Be aware that you will need a nice... More

We were directed here for lunch by our hotel. Although we were not expecting a full white-tablecloth facility, we decided to stay if they would allow 4 tired, jean-clad Americans to interrupt the other business diners to stay. We were quite the table conversation for our fellow diners! They offered a full dinner menu, even at lunch, but we opted... More

We tried several restaurants in Quito in the fine dinning space. We found this one to be the best by far but it's not cheap (around $70 a person) and not great. The alvacodo may be the best I've ever had. The seafood is good but not the best. The beef is good, but again, not the best. Wine list... More
