El Fortin is a classic combination of good atmosphere with great food. I had the chance to visit the restaurant while presenting a Langostino's Festival!

Best meal we've had in Ecuador. We shared the grilled vegetables & pasta ( Fettachini Osco Bucco) amazing. Food was great, but had to prompt for a drink!

The setting is a little formal, with slightly stiff (but still friendly) waiters who insist on keeping your beer bottle on a separate table to re-fill your glass as you go, as if you'd ordered an expensive Bordeaux.

Good beef is hard to come by in many areas of Ecuador. The steaks here are the best we have had the n Ecuador. The barbecued octopus was tender and incredibly flavorful. The mixed seafood appetizer was lightly breaded like tempura... the seafood very fresh, delicious. Service was impeccable. The dining room is beautiful and comfortable.

I don't typically go onto trip advisor -however this was the best restaurant we ate during our visit to Ecuador. We tend to shy away from restaurants in hotels- however this was deserves recognition.The service was exceptional as was the food. There were six of us and every dish was excellent.
