We visited Calle La Ronda at about 7pm on a Saturday night and it was "standing room only". The area is full of bars and restaurants and it's very lively with lots of music coming from the bars. The people were mostly on the younger side and out to have a good time. We felt safe walking from one end... More

This is a cute, refurbished little street on the edge of the Centro Historico. It is totally geared toward tourists, however. The many restaurants offer over-priced and poor quality food. It's nice for photos, but go somewhere else for dinner.

La Ronda is a street where they sell food, souvenirs, canelazo's etc. There are a lot bars with typical music. On friday and saturday night it's crowded. On other days/nights there are not so many people. The houses are beautiful and there's a nice atmosphere of people wandering around here. It's quite a romantic place and there are loads of... More

This is the place to go if you want to see the "movida" in Quito. Quiet during the day, but in the evening all bars will open and a river of people will flow through this steep street to enjoy the typical "empanadas de viento" with a "canelazo". Should not miss it if you are in Quito.

You will want to walk everywhere here, get some great views in and definitely buy some of those breads and cookies that the local makers were making there. I ate like a pig in the little stores and loved the walk on the cobblestones. It's very well preserved and it looks like you could eat off of the streets, it's... More

Lively street with lots of bars and restaurants, live music and different - including local - cuisine. But be aware: Lots of things are closed during the day and also monday evenings. Other days of the week it gets crowded.

When we arrived during the afternoon, almost everything was closed except the Pananderia Reina de la Paz had a sign up saying real Italian pizza, and displayed an attractive loaf of bread. I ordered the pizza and was appalled at its appearance and even more at the taste...I could not eat it. Tough, baked hours before, a tasteless smear of... More

Everyone (guidebooks and Quitenos) say that La Ronda is the best thing ever, but I didn't think it was that spectacular. I went during the day though, and everyone says its charm is at night. Perhaps I'm missing something, but I went twice, and it was dead. It's usually part of walking tours though, and it isn't that far out... More

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.

Not your regular EDM music...(thank god for a change). An evening out at thr Candyll La Ronda turned into one of dancing to a live latino band and drinking a lot of Guallazo y Narajillazo..we were in paradise. Please do order the "Mega Vento Empanada" it will blow your mind and taste buds as well. Its a gigantic empanada with... More
