We had travelled around Ecuador for two and a half weeks but had always been hesitant to try the local food as we did not want to get sick. We ended up in Quito and the Achiote was recommended to us as a safe place to eat Ecuadorian food. We were made very welcome and shown to our table. The... More

I spent 18 days in Ecuador and the Galapagos. Achiote by far had THE best Ecuadorian food! It was clean, affordable, had great presentation and flavor.

Great food and really friendly service. That said, the food took forever and ever to get to us. We're pretty sure it's because they were working hard to make us great dishes (we were foreign and in a large group) but it took ages to get things that shouldn't have taken too long. For example, we were all finished eating... More

The service here is excellent. The food is OK, but we wish it would have come sooner. Have some balloons but don't have the ground cherry smoothie!!!

We were looking for a place close to our hotel in new town. This place was great. It was really reasonable priced (seriously -- $10-20 per person), very casual, very clean/nice/modern, and super warm/friendly. A great place to eat after a long day of sight seeing!

I enjoyed the varied menu and local produce, fish and meat dishes. Service was pleasant and fairly quick, considering the restaurant was busy. Very accommodating staff, who called a taxi for us when we were ready to return to our hotel. Definitely will return when I am in Quito again.

This restaurant is known for its Ecuador specialities. The service is very friendly. The prices are on the high side 30$/person for a full meal but the quality is there! Of course don't go there for international food.
