Due to its peruvian menu and its large selection of wines, La Gloria is an excelent option for fine dinning in Quito. Not to miss their grilled octopus which is cooked to perfection. As expected, La Gloria is an expensive restaurant for ecuadorian standards but it is really worth it!

We were in a party of 6 and ended up sharing all the dishes. Every single dish was delicious, but the octopus and the black rice were particularly sublime.

Like many others we dined here with Celebrity cruises. While we were dubious of a cruise selected dining experience, we were delighted with this selection. The menus featured three courses. The ceviche was excellent as well as the veal shank. The three small deserts were also very good, albeit the creme brule didn't have the classic crust. We also had... More

The food was ok....... TERRIBLE SERVICE!!! We waited one hour for our appetizers and then another thirty minutes for the main course. When they finally brought the food, they brought four of the five plates and kept us waiting even more while our plates got cold. This is not what I expected from this type of restaurant. I am very... More

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
