We were there on Tues. night & it was empty. We did have dinner at a restaurant that I would recommend, Casa Los Geranios. The waiter & chef were very helpful, spent a lot of time with us (it wasn't busy) & led us through selecting some traditional Ecuadorian foods.

It's a lovely street in the Old Town. Shame all craft shops and restaurants open quite late in the afternoon. So avoid going before noon because everything is shut down.

Great place, and a must see for all visitors. Lively colonial walking street which is now full of great traditional bars, live music and artisan workshops. Great place to mix with local people and break out of the tourist-only bubble. Have some traditional food and drinks, but with a quality that doesnt make worried if you'll get sick afterward. Definitely... More

Going to quito to get together with friends and exchange program at San Francisco University and end up at la Ronda, drinking canelaço and eating smoked meat was a riot. Lots of fun, bravado and young easy going people was a blessing for me and a few other. La Ronda is indeed a must if you find yourself in Quito.... More

Make sure you go Thursday, Friday or Saturday. We love it around 7PM, when the great flocks of people are not there yet, but street music is going and restaurants still have space. Don´t miss out on the canelazo and the empanadas de viento....share one, or you´ll be too full for anything else!

We happened upon this street via Lonely Planet walking tour our first day in town. It's loaded with shops and fantastic places to eat. We had our first canelazo (beverage) here. Several places have live music in the evenings, and it's a great place to stroll before or after dinner.

This area has been restored and is charming. Lots of little shops to explore. Restaurant choices are decent but plentiful. We went back at night and it felt very touristy--reminded us of Times Square. Much younger crowd.

If you like a perfect colonial historic spot in Quito, go to La Ronda. Friday and Saturdays you will find shows and entertainment.
