El Ventanal is perhaps one of the best restaurants in Quito, not only for the delicious food and great service but for the unique view of the old Quito. Located n a very strategic place in the hills of San Juan, the view cant be better. Highly recommended.

Ok... you want to see Quito at night because it is absolutely beautiful, so that is why you come here , but unfortunately majority of the dishes are bellow average and the managers and waiters could care less . They seem to be counting on the view for you to forget about the meal.There is a beautiful octopus salad and a traditional potato soup that are worth going there , but that is all that you can eat there . You can take a chance for the view , but don't count on enjoying the food .

4 of us were visiting Quito before joining our Galapagos tour and wanted good Ecuadorian food in a nice restaurant. We found El Ventantal had superior food, excellent wine, good service and a fabulous view ! We decided to walk to the restaurant because someone told us it was a hard (uphill) walk and that we needed a taxi. Well, perhaps a taxi would have been a better choice but the walk was good for us !

I went there for the second time. It is worth the visit because of the amazing view.
They always welcome you with a "canelazo" typical ecuadorian drink.
The food is good even though for the second time I think that the tuna could be served more raw.
