Loved it!

Go on Friday or Saturday nights. Transports the visitor directly to old Quito. The buildings and streets have been carefully restored. So much to enjoy here.

In the daytime, it is picturesque but quite sleepy but it transforms into a real social hotspot at nighttime with a great vibe and a huge choice of live music venues. There were also street entertainers and some interesting shops, open late into the evening. It doesn't seem to really get going until after 8pm so best have a nice... More

If you look for good places for dinner, go to this area. You'll find plenty of restaurants serving local food in beatiful streets.

This place is cool but dead during the day. If you go at night there are good places to eat and drink. Has a neat bohemian vibe to it.

This is the number one destination in Quito for both day and night. During the day one can visit many shops and workshops and eat in one of the tiny resturants. Good destination for children also. At night the locals as well as the tourists visit the bars and clubs. The Ecuadorians are very friendly and after some dancing and... More

It has a warm environment in the cold nights of Quito. Try to find the giant "empanadas de viento" in traditional restaurants that surround this emblematic street. You could find places with live musicians, buy souvenirs ( a liitle expensive but not too much). Take care at arriving by foot, could be treatening if you do not take care. Stay... More

Every night while in the historic part of Quito we went to la Ronda for dinner, drinks and live music! This is definitely not to be missed while in Quito!

During the day time few shops are open and the street smells of booze and urine. There are a few shops and a struggling artisan work/show complex worth seeing, but they would do better elsewhere in Historic Quito. Calle La Ronda, the buildings are interesting, but it seems the clubs and cafes only come alive at night. And you have... More
