La Gloria

Our Story

Fourteen years ago, we ventured from Lima to establish this haven, devoted to the celebration of all that we delight in sharing: gastronomic wonders, fragrant aromas, heartfelt embraces, spirited libations, tantalizing flavors, joyous laughter, exquisite wines, harmonious melodies, spirited revelry, and indelible gatherings with those closest to our hearts.

We savor the Peruvian symphony of flavors, from the delectable green rice with braised duck, to the crispy yet tender suckling pig prepared in the style of a Segovian countryside grill. There’s the ever-refreshing Ecuadorian red tuna, our resplendent and renowned Glorious fideua, and the Mediterranean symphony of a rich and succulent rice dish teeming with the treasures of the Pacific coast of this expansive and diverse Ecuador.

The best part? The pinnacle awaits, always on the horizon! May life’s grand celebration bestow upon us more time to continue convening here, at La Gloria. May our cherished friends relish their visits wholeheartedly, just as we revel in the anticipation of unlocking our doors each day, eager to welcome you

Our Premises

The Great Terrace

The Grand Terrace is our brand-new space where the joy multiplies and the smiles are amplified. This fresh Terrace is modern, inviting, and full of life. We’ve crafted an innovative selection of ceviches and crudos, platters, rice dishes, and much more.

Accompanied by our Lively Bar and the astonishing Ceviches and Crudos Bar, you can savor the finest pisco sours, gin tonics, wines, and bubbles. It’s the loveliest open setting in the city, and it’s right here at La Gloria!

Main Salon

The main dining hall of the restaurant pulses with the joy of people, while our music wraps around the festive ambiance. Tables overflow with exquisite dishes, always accompanied by their wine bottles, as laughter and lively conversations intertwine in the air. Like a synchronized ballet, the waitstaff glide back and forth, attending our guests and ensuring that every smile is genuine.

The atmosphere embraces warmth and hospitality, yet carries a mischievous touch of fun. The walls are adorned with bottled art, creating a gallery of stories captured in glass. From this privileged viewpoint, the majestic La Gloria wine cellar unfolds, inviting you to select the perfect wine to complement each flavor of your meal.

This corner is the perfect stage for a romantic dinner, for weaving nights of laughter with friends, and, of course, for sealing those anticipated business deals. Regardless of the occasion, in the main dining hall of La Gloria, you’ll always find the melody of happiness.

The biggest wine cellar in Ecuador

The dream awakens with a clinking of wine glasses, as two friends who share an immense passion for the world of wine – the “namesakes” or the two Santiagos: Vintimilla and Jarrín – both wine enthusiasts and sommeliers, one a wine merchant and the other a restaurateur.

They are seated at the Bar of La Gloria Restaurant in Quito. Surely, under the enchanting influence of various uncorked bottles, they begin to weave a grand and ambitious project to extend the concept of the now existing Wine Shop of La Gloria Restaurant. This shop provides diners with all wines at retail prices, reaching towards a much broader and contemporary realm.

Patricio Zaldumbide, the CFO and also a partner of the restaurant and the project, gives even greater wings to the dream, ultimately transforming it into the largest wine eCommerce platform in the country, an enterprise achieved collectively.

The Great Bar

The Bar at La Gloria is sheer delight! It’s unique, the very heart of the restaurant. A place for tapas, for dining, for sipping, for laughter, for dinner, for conversations, for enjoyment, for celebration, for before and after, for relishing, for reconnecting, for falling in love…
An intimate space frequented by regulars and friends of the establishment, the bar welcomes everyone with open arms. One of Quito’s most iconic and renowned bars, it boasts a distinctive atmosphere that captivates
