Our hotel recommended this restaurant and even had a shuttle to take us there. It is located above the Sucre Opera House. We dined in elegant surroundings and were treated royally by the staff. The menu is very local, featuring Ecuadorean surprises like Guinea Pig, Amazon herbed roasted fish, and coconut milk dishes from the Esmeraldas region.

We went there two times for dinner. The food quality was very good. The atmosphere was very nice and the service excellent. Prices were rather high. Great place for a nice dinner - highly recommended if you stay in Quito.

Our restaurant is located in Quito's Historical Center on the second floor of Sucre National Theater, Cultural Patrimony from the XIX century, an expression of renaissance classicism. In the entire second floor it is located the most important restaurant in Quito, THEATRUM Restaurant & Wine Bar that offers an extraordinary menu of the vanguard Mediterranean cuisine. One of our emblematic dishes is the Grilled tender octopus with mixed greens, cherry tomatoes, garlic tossed in pesto vinaigrette. Our classic Ecuadorian prawns on the grill with avocado mousse and tomato fondue.
