Just back from Ecuador / Galapagos.
Food actually lovely - I especially like the patties they make from potatoes.
I would like to recommend the restaurant Theatrum in the Theatre Sucre in the historic city. It is the only real international Chow quality restaurant we found. The food is wonderful - locally inspired dishes and a decent wine list. You need to reserve in advance and they send a taxi to take you from and return you to your hotel. This is essential as it is in a shabby / slightly dangerous area (I was sprayed with mess by potential pickpockets, walking around there during the day). website is www.theatrum.com.ec
