The buffet was part of our tour of Quito with Celebrity Cruise Lines. All of the food was wonderful and included my favorites, like civiche. They also had a very talented singer for our entertainment.

We had the Tasting Menu #1 and were very pleased with everything. The service staff was attentive, polite and patient with explanations of the different courses. Our tasting menu contained a wonderful variety of dishes and each one was thoughtfully prepared with attention to presentation as well as flavor. At the end of our meal, they even arranged for complimentary... More

I visited theatrum as was of the opinion it be a good restaurant and fine dining. First the food, staff is friendly and place looks ok. Ambiance disturbed by bad choice of music. The food unfortunately was horrible. I'm a foodie and have eaten in many of the best so I don't mind to spend. However, what they served and... More

I chose this restaurant to have dinner during my vacations in Ecuador. The experience was disappointing: bad service in a decadent restaurant, really cold, with normal food but wishes to be awesome. And the price was quite high taking into account the food they prepare and the poor service they provide. In summary, a disappointing experience in Quito

We ate here as it was our last evening in Quito. What a disappointment. We were the only people in the restaurant, which should have been a warning sign. My smoked trout starter was so salty as to be virtually inedible. The main course of red snapper was tasty but nothing special. A glass of house wine was $9US and... More

A great place to dine with a large group...and small group too. We were 12 strong...and as we all know, serving a large group can be challenging. The staff at Theatrum were up to the challenge. They took our orders and served the food without a hitch. The kitchen obviously was well trained as our food came out very close... More

Yes the service is wonderful here. (Although I wish the servers hadn't been told to use the work "mister" to address men in English instead of "sir". It was a little strange.) What bothered me was that I'd been to the website and had prices and dishes in mind only to find out that the website must have been at... More

We had lunch here as a part of our Celebrity Cruise day tour of Quito. The buffet had a nice selection of food. The service was great. We ate out on a beautiful balcony.

The two of us each selected one of the tasting menus, so we could try a little of everything. The appetizers were so flavorful and the ceviche was perfect. Our mains were very good and this is the best cuy (guinea pig) I have ever eaten in Ecuador or Peru. One recommendation: try to avoid the hot bread rolls. While... More

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.
