A line that unites us

We are taught to believe that our country is named after a line, Latitude 0, that divides the world into two hemispheres.

We, at Quitu, prefer to believe that when the Equator touches the equinoctial line, instead of dividing us, it becomes something magical that unites us.

Like a powerful and invisible thread that threads our four regions in the precious necklace of a Common Identity.

This Tasting Menu invites you to go through that non-existent imaginary line, contemporary Ecuadorian cuisine.

Sustainability Dossier

Our main focus is to generate a high-impact, sustainable, long-lasting and replicable gastronomic project.
We constantly work as a team with strategic allies and B certification companies, developing a work ecosystem sheltered by a common value chain towards the enhancement, dissemination and protection of local and responsible food consumption.
At Quitu, we take care of the quality and origin of the products we use, which for us are not only an essential source of supply for our kitchen, but also a source of ethical inspiration.
Through fair trade with small and medium producers from various communities in our 4 regions: Coast, Sierra, Amazon and Galapagos; We can contribute to the development of hundreds of families while promoting and marketing healthier, more sustainable and local food alternatives that are sometimes forgotten and neglected in a globalized world.
The gastronomic offer in the kitchen of Quitu changes with the seasonality of the products and their availability in the market, although the philosophy and the objective are the same.
