Fodor's Review

Critics rave about this upscale restaurant, which draws its share of businesspeople and government officials. If you order a complete meal from soup to nuts, plus wine, it will cost you around $60, but if you curb your appetite, you could get by for around $20 to $25 total. It is rumored that you could choose from the menu blindfolded and still consistently receive a masterpiece of taste and presentation.

Lovely Evening

We were staying at the nearby Cafe Cultura (lovely, quirky hotel but mediocre food) and wanted somewhere special. We were recommended this place and boy did we have a special evening. Food was great - try the Carpaccio de Pato for your starter. Steaks are good and my Marquesa de Chocolate pudding was to die for! Food was not only good but well cooked and presented. Service was attentive without being fussy and the ambience was perfect. We went for

a quiet evening meal, others were celebrating or meeting for business - nothing intruded. So what did it cost? A three-course meal for the two of us plus wine came to £58. Our bottled water was free!

Good Choice!

I ate at La Vina back in July when I was in Quito for work. I had a shrimp appetizers, a steak entree and a lemon mousse for dessert. All three were excellent. I'd highly recommend it. And on an American budget you can really splurge there! While I was dining there, there were Ecuadorian TV stars sitting at the next table...
