This was THE BEST restaurant in Quito, and probably one of the best restaurants that I’ve ever dined at. My boyfriend and I ate at this restaurant during our last night in Quito. Unfortunately, we had less than two hours to enjoy our dinner as we were rushing to catch a late night flight. It took us about 30 minutes to hail a taxi driver that roughly knew about where the hacienda was located. I’m glad I had both the address and a map (from their website), because it was still a bit difficult for the taxi driver to find.
I contacted the restaurant in advance to make reservations, and I informed them that we would have all of our luggage with us since we would be leaving the restaurant to go to the airport. Upon arrival to the hotel we were promptly greeted and our luggage was retrieved from the taxi and stored in a locked area. The hacienda is truly beautiful – gorgeously decorated and amazing views of Quito. The waiter even let us wander around and take pictures while our dinner was being prepared.
Now, on to the food… My boyfriend had the Salmon Andino (Fresh Salmon) and I had the Corvina and Mariscos (Sea Bass and Seafood). I can’t emphasize enough how AWESOME the food tasted. Everything was fresh, wonderfully seasoned, and prepared to perfection. The portions were generous and everything was reasonably priced. I wish I had had enough room for dessert, but since I gobbled my entire entrée up, I was literally stuffed.
The staff was so accommodating, attentive, and professional during our entire visit. In fact, after our dinner my boyfriend and I were informed that our taxi had arrived to take us to the airport, but by the time we walked outside, the staff of Rumiloma had already loaded up the taxi with our luggage. That’s definitely top notch service!
I’ll definitely return to Rumiloma when I go back to Quito, and next time around I hope I can actually book an overnight stay at the hacienda!
