My wife and I stayed in a hotel just two streets down from Calle La Ronda. We made it over that way on Saturday night and we were just not impressed with the restaurants, entertainment, or the crowd. We walked end to end several times before we decided on a taxi to Zinc Gatro Bar. We felt this was a... More

This is a buzzing area of town offering local food, handicraft goods and places to have a drink and watch the world go by. Every time I go here I discover something different. I think it is well worth a visit if you are in Quito. It does seem to get livelier after sundown but shops open in the mornings... More

The La Carsona de la Ronda hotel was right in the heart of the district and a perfect place to stay. Enjoyed all the people, their acitivities, and the many small shops and eateries.

La Ronda is a street that starts with an arch at the end of Garcia Moreno street. No buses, noise, simply a public space with a lot of artisanal shops and restaurants. The buildings are like out of Spain, the balconies are nicely decorated with flower pots. A Very nice chocolate shop/ bakery and some good pizzerias are found in... More

The best time to see this street is on Thursday-Saturday evenings. Very few things are open during the first part of the week and nothing before noon really. Wonderful artisans and their shops. If it's chilly, make sure to grab a class of canelzo, a warm cinnamon flavored alcohol shot. Must stop in Api Real. She makes soaps and other... More

We came on a Sunday night and really not much was happening unlike what is supposed to happen on Fridays and Saturdays. A few restaurants were open but all the eateries seemed geared towards tourists with some people trying to entice you in.

This is a beautiful little street! It's picturesque and quaint, and if we could have stayed into the evening, we would have gone back! We were told there's a fabulous chocolate shop and beautiful locals items.
