It is located behind the Swissotel and up on the next block. The owner, an Ecuadorian of German and Italian heritage, is also the chef and the meal was so good we returned the following evening. Highly recommended

This is one of the best restaurants in the town, the food is very good, all the food! But the best thing about Pavarotti is the kind service. Indeed, I want to congratulate the owner because of his personal and gentle atention.

As an international traveller you know when you meet excellence. And the meal we had - Chefs choice - was absolutely in the upper end of restaurants we have tried abroad. Excellent service, friendly atmosphere, delicate interior. It does not come any better. And - to us Pavarotti is superior to another Quito restaurant, Zazu.

Pavarotti is definitely one of the best restaurants in Quito. Everything we ordered was perfect, the flavor was superb and the presentation was magnificent. Whenever in need to find good Mediterranean and Italian fusion food in Quito, Pavarotti is the place to go. Highly recommended.

We went to the restaurant for dinner with colleagues as a team event and it turned out to be a great choice. The food was good, we ordered couple of Octopus and couple of mushroom appetizers, they were excellent. The chef talked to us and explained how he is going to cook each of the dishes and the presentation was... More

The food was so-so, but the service was what made this place an awful experience. I am not referring to the typical lack of service you can sometimes find when traveling abroad. I am talking about the waiter not wanting me to order a filet because "We don't recommend that for the ladies. How about a chicken or a fish?... More

I found this lovely little restaurant behind the popular SwissHotel and stopped in for lunch. I was surprised that at 12:30pm I was the only customer dining here. The restaurant was lovely. I had a nice window seat and my table had a vase with fresh roses in it. The service was attentive, but not overdone. I had a delicious... More

We had a long working day and needed a place few steps from the hotel. The concierge recommended this Italian spot. As usual, I was concerned about having to deal with the usual starchy, sad, cheap Italian-ish stuffs. Glad that I was wrong. Good appetizers: grilled octopus was much better than the soaked in sauce mozzarella (a no-no for me).... More
