The best restaurant in Quito. My dad took us there , and I fall in love with the service and the food. The house since you get in , is better than a museum. Most of the history of Quito is in that Restaurant.

Octava is a gem among all the restaurants in Quito. Jamie is the owner and server - such a nice guy. The place is full of local artwork - every wall is full and gorgeously designed. The food is phenomenal and the wine cave is a true treat to explore. It's not a cheap place - but has excellent value for your money. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a true dining experience.

Jaime is the most lovely host and will make the best recommendations as to wine pairings. My husband and I went for a VERY early dinner and had the place to ourselves so we were given a tour of all the antiques and art. Granted I know some Spanish but he is so gracious that you will have a wonderful experience! The seafood we selected was really delicious and the wines (we chose local ones) were perfect! We would go back in an instant!!!!!!!!!!!!

fantastic setting with bizarre mix of artwork. very friendly host and a great wine cellar - no list go view, discuss & chose. Wine was not expensive despite not asking prices to start.

food was mixed some good some poor. from our experience avoid meat and stick to seafood.

This restaurant is in a house covered in art work. Not only on the walls, but on every available surface. Some of it is bizarre, but almost all extremely interesting. Because of the surroundings, it was pretty hard to concentrate on the food, but it was quite good, we had a set menu, as we were a small group of 8, and the only people in the restaurant for lunch. The attentive service was excellent, and fun! It is such a quirky place it really should be a "must" when visiting Quito.
