Restaurant & Lounge Bar

A beautiful space for our guests to wine and dine with spectacular views across the estate and out to the sea.

Our restaurant is a combination of elegant colonial style and traditional island design and offers the ultimate indoor and outdoor dining experience. The warm mahogany furniture reflects the glow of the open fire underneath the impressive pitch roof. An large open fireplace divides the bar and the restaurant, and on warmer nights you can enjoy the terrace under the equatorial stars. The menu artfully combines traditional Ecuadorian flavors with some more established international favorites. As many ingredients as possible are freshly sourced from the Island, and fresh fish is collected directly from the fishermen in the port. The wine cellar reflect the eclectic nature of the menu and includes some interesting South American choices.
