Catalina de Aldaz, Quito 170135, Ecuador


See Website

The brainchild of Bill Letiery, one of Quito's most prolific restaurateurs, Carmine is housed in a gorgeous turn-of-century mansion with sweeping bay windows and ivy-covered walls. Inside, the restaurant is just as vast and grand. The comfy, art Nouveau “living room” functions as a full service bar, leading out into five different dining rooms, all in different parts of the house. On warm days, ask to be seated on the gorgeous terrace directly opposite the house; the airy wood-and-glass structure is the perfect place to have a meal in Quito.
