Not bad, not great. Its a well located restaurant. The menu is wide but non of the dishes were up there. Service was poor even though there was no body else in the restaurant. I know they are new, but they still have a long way to go.

These people sure know service. We arrived on a rather chilly fall night. Despite the fact that it was late and there weren't many people in the restaurant, the waiter offered to light the fire for us. He ,add some recommendations for food, some of which we took.

This new restaurant is sure to be one of Quito's top dining experiences. The rack of lamb was superb; perfectly prepared, a generous portion, and served with a full bodied red wine sauce. My wife chose the risotto as the side dish. It was skillfully prepared and delicious. The Bife de Chorizo was also wonderful. The hearty steak was seasoned... More

I visited La Rustica a few months ago on a family trip to Quito. I found the restaurant walking from my hotel to one of the shopping centres in Quito. My husband and I love beef so I had the bife the chorizo and David had the tender loin with raviolis. Both dishes were cooked to perfection, probably the same... More

Service, very caring, making sure we had a pleasant dinner. Go La... More

La Rustica is a small and relatively new Restaurant on a quiet street near one of the financial districts in the northern part of Quito, Ecuador. The centerpiece concept of the Restaurant is to rescue and extensively use the ancestral clay oven as the heart of the cuisine which is prepared at an open-kitchen, featuring the traditional oven, where fresh...
