Had a wonderful meal there last night. Restaurant is upscale without being pretentious. Had the best squid and shrimp entree ever. The lamb was fantastic. Staff was warm and polite. My wife really enjoyed chocolate lovers desert. Place was reasonably priced and the portions were not huge but big enough and I walked out full.

We had intended to go somewhere else but found that was closed. We had three hungry (one pretty cranky because of it) kids with us and we were not dressed for a nice dinner. We apologized as we entered but the staff made us feel like we fit right in and our waiter, Jonnathan, especially was very courteous and accommodating.... More

My wife and I were staying at the Swissotel where this restaurant is located and had a quiet dinner for two. The waiter was fantastic, knew the menu backwards, could make suggestions for a couple of dietary variations and was attentive without being pushy. The food was perfectly presented and drink options well matched. It is not cheap, but we... More

Friends ate in this resarant the night before and raved over it. Sadly the lamb racks were raw. Staff quickly took it away and only cooked one rack again the other was still raw. Staff offered us a free dessert which was 2 teaspoons of icecream. Friends also got a 20% discount for staying and dining in the hotel. No... More

Wasn't a bad choice for a hotel restaurant. The wine list was very pricey but the raclette was a great value. We weren't very hungry so we ordered for one, but it almost looked like they gave us portions for two. There was more than what we could eat even if we had had more cheese (which was an option).

Excellent food and service! This was the last dinner of our tour and was one of the best. I had a delicious Sea Bass.

Everything was absolutely delicious. The restaurant is inside the swissotel. We had some doubts at the beginning because the place was empty but it was the nicest surprise. Service was perfect, and even the music was relaxing and at the right volume. Never had such an amazing food experience.

Had lunch at La Locanda in the Swiss Hotel in Quito on a weekday afternoon. The atmosphere was very relaxed and the service was excellent. The menu is quite varied making it difficult to settle on a choice. Everyone in our party of 4 got something different and the presentations were wonderful. I had the cannelloni which was very good.... More

We ate at La Locanda several times while staying at the Swissotel Quito (reviewed separately). The restaurant is quiet and a bit formal but the food is excellent and the service is first-rate. On our last night at the hotel, the staff informed us that our first glass of wine was on the house because we had been such faithful... More

We went with friends from India. Although there were only 2 other tables with diners, the wait staff totally ignored us after we ordered only bottled water for drinks. We waited 20 minutes for the water which never came. When I tried to catch the eye of the waitress so we could order our meal, she looked at me and... More
