Review: Café Cultura, Quito, Ecuador

Café Cultura is part of the beautiful hotel whose building was previously home to one of Quito’s oldest families, and then the French Cultural Centre.  It is a tranquil house and garden setting which is really cosy.  The restaurant has a well deserved strong reputation for extraordinary food and service.  I would advise booking ahead as the restaurant is fairly small and if there is just one large party it leaves not many tables left.  This restaurant really is beautiful and the food fantastic so do try to visit!

This was a bit of a splash for us being backpackers, however, it really is very reasonably priced and not too damaging to the wallet for the quality of meal.

We went all out and had three courses and wine!  For starters we began with the fried parmesan aubergine and stuffed tomatoes.  The tomatoes in particular were delicious with crisp, fresh tomatoes stuffed with a creamy, flavoursome tuna mix.

Next we moved onto steaks!  Yum Yum Yum!  Absolutely mouth watering and scrumptious.
Finally we squeezed in some cheesecake and flaming bananas!  The cheesecake was the dessert to shout about….wow it was incredible.

The service here is top notch and I cant really fault anything about our experience.
