El Ventanal



The location of this fabulous restaurant is unrivalled. It sits in the heart of Quito's historic centre, an area of bewitching quaintness at the foot of the Pichincha volcano, and has panoramic views, not to mention a lovely refreshing breeze. Depending on where you sit, you can see either the neighbourhood of San Juan, the colonial centre of Quito, the Panecillo or the world-famous Avenue of Volcanoes.

The cuisine is international, meaning there is something for everyone. The dishes have a modern twist and creative flair, and as well as international include a contemporary take on Ecuadorian gastronomy. All of this works in blissful harmony with the extensive - and very impressive - selection of wines on offer.

The interior is minimalist yet classy - letting the surrounding vista take over - and the service is renowned by being professional, attentive and warm. El Ventanal is a must for those that love their food, their history, or just a good view; here you can have all three!
