locations throughout the city. Customers can choose from savory or dessert crepes and nearly

topped with ice cream, as many locals and tourists report that the restaurant's ice cream is the
best you'll find on Quito vacations.

Got A Little Room In Your Budget? Choose Barlovento

Barlovento is a bit pricey compared to other Quito gastronomy experiences, but visitors to this
restaurant report that the cost is well worth it. Barlevento offers seafood with a decidedly
Ecuadorian flair and favorites include coconut seafood stew, crab spring rolls, ceviche,
empanadas and the paella. The restaurant is located across from one of the city's biggest hotels
and is a popular choice with both locals and tourists.

ones to visit during Quito vacations is Pavarotti Ristoranti. Many of the dishes here come with an
Ecuadorian twist, so don't be afraid to order something a little out of the ordinary. Some dishes
that the restaurant is known for include the calamari ink pasta, sea bass, veal, spaghetti

slightly more expensive by Ecuadorian standards, however, they're on par for quality meals in
other countries. Pavarotti Ristoranti is located across the street from Swisshotel and the World
Trade Center.
