Although on the pricey side, the food was delicious and the setting elegant, not to mention great service as my daughter and I kicked off our trip to Ecuador

Overrated food and service in the restaurant, although the ambiance is nice. Weak on the wine pours in the maridaje for the menú degustación. I recommend that you try Zazu or Chez Jerome for better. There is also an Osaka in Quito.

Casa Gangotena's restaurant is a surprise: differently from the hotel rooms (average $450 when we visited), it is very accesible, with prices similar to those in many other Quito restaurants. Service was very good, but the restaurant definitely lacks ambience. Whereas the bar keeps an outstanding mosaic floor and wooden panels, the restaurant is carpeted, curtains, lighting and furniture are... More

The hotel is stunning, having been refurbished to bring out all the original features and give an overall feeling of splendour. The garden is a refreshing space in the middle of the old town and the bar, just calls out for a great cocktail. The range of alcohol was great. The beers tasty. My negroni was weak, very much ice...

We were a party of six and waited for about two hours for our food. We got there about 2pm, which is average lunch time in Ecuador. The manager wasn't able to give an explanation. The food was extremely scarce and way too expensive. Nonetheless the place is nice. I do not recommend this restaurant.

As we arrived at the entrance we understood how elegant the place is and we were worried not be let in by the guards, since we were dressed for travelling (training outfit). But there was no problem and so we enjoyed a great brunch for $ 35 each which was really worth it: ceviche, meat, different and delicious cheeses and... More
