The restaurant has an excellent food from the mediterranean to peruvian food. I have tried many different dishes and all of then where very good. Sometimes our friends and we go to the bar to have just a drink and listen good music, which is located in a separate area, so it has a very good atmosphere.

My starter was grilled shrimp served on top of an avocado mousse. I would gladly have gone again just to have that! For my entree, I had a salt encrusted fish which was removed from the bone tableside. It was wonderful. I highly recommend this restaurant. Also lovely decor and excellent wine selection.

Let me begin by saying that this restaurant is the favorite of Celebrity Cruise Lines to take their high standing passengers after the Galapagos Cruise. Every Saturday night the whole place is booked by this famous cruise line and no other clients are allowed inside. Other days are perfect to eat in this nice restaurant. For me one of the... More

Very good high quality food at a reasonable price is always a plus. I had the veal shank and it was delicious. See Picture. Service was good, a little harried, but good overall. It LOOKS like they should have a decent wine selection, but alas at the time we were there they either didn't, or didn't want to sell it,... More

We were taken here for dinner as part of our Celebrity Cruises tour package, which would later involve a week in the Galapagos. I had a chicken and mushroom entrée and my friend had that and an appetizer with shrimp. Both very good. We were all given a dessert trio which included a tiramisu, a lemon something, and a blackberry... More

Had dinner here pre/Galapagos cruise and it was excellent. Nice wine list and atmosphere. The veal was amazing and the chicken was very good. Everything was nicely done especially when you consider there 100 people in the group.

We were going to the Galapagos Islands with Celebrity Cruise line and stayed 2 nights in Quito prior to the cruise and had dinner at this very nice restaurant. The restaurant was small but seems to have a nice wine room. I had the veal shank for the entrée and it had to be one of the best! The dish... More
