The Reina Victoria is no longer around, but this British-American pub has popped up to fill the void for homesick folks from the U.S.A. and U.K. While it's more of a sports bar, with large flat-screens at every angle and international sports paraphernalia on every wall, the Turtle's Head also brews small batches of amber ale, porter, stout, and barley wine on-site. The beers are pretty average in my opinion, basically home brews, but some will appreciate the availability of craft beer. There is a pool table, darts, table soccer, and an all-around nice selection of pub games that you’ll be hard-pressed to find elsewhere in Quito. The food is fine for snacking with a pint while watching a game, but if you're looking for a full meal go elsewhere.
