Discover the flavors of Ecuador in a historic setting
Drawing inspiration from Ecuador’s abundantly rich and diverse ingredients, Casa Gangotena has crafted a creative and unique signature cuisine. We take pride in constantly exploring and experimenting with the myriad of flavors, scents, textures, and ancestral cooking techniques that come together in Ecuador’s gastronomy and culture. At our restaurant, we offer a delightful range of dining experiences, including breakfast, lunch, Cafe Quiteño (our version of “high tea”), and dinner.
Casa Gangotena Restaurant offers a Cocina Mestiza, which is a re-interpretation of traditional Ecuadorian food using fresh local ingredients and contemporary culinary techniques.
A special space for every occasion
Beyond being a hotel in Quito’s Old Town, Casa Gangotena offers an immersive experience of the city, allowing you to embrace it in your own way. Our spaces provide a serene sanctuary to read, dream, and contemplate the astonishing surroundings that envelop our unique location. It’s not just a place to stay— it’s an opportunity to fully connect with the essence of Quito and create cherished memories.

Old Quito has regained its luster, with so many ways to mix luxuries à la Casa Gangotena with simple pleasures. The hotel can arrange for a Live Quito Like a Local tour that takes in visits to artisans, sweets makers, and even a traditional miller in the San Roque area.
The hotel is known among business clientele for its wonderful afternoon tea, which is served either in the restaurant or in a quiet internal patio facing the garden. Some of the tea infusions are made with fresh herbs from the orchard and there is also a blend of Ecuadorian coffee roasted exclusively for the hotel.
The three-story Renaissance-inspired structure, originally built as a home in 1534, combines neoclassical elements with modern custom-made furniture, and its rooftop terrace offers wrap-around views of Quito’s Old Town.
