In medieval Italy, a locanda was a stopping place for travellers to rest and dine. Today Swissotel Quito maintains this same tradition of hospitality, but with a unique gastronomic twist. La Locanda offers Mediterranean cuisine with a strong Peruvian influence. A fine selection of wines and an elegant atmosphere sets this restaurant apart from any other in the city.
