Definitely one of the best !

From the start until the very end you can enjoy every part of the ambience, decoration, food and non less the service. I was impressed how a non traditional MOJITO and a CANELAZO was included in the coctels menu which one matched perfectly with my evening. The food was amazing!! And the staff went... read more

First thing we noticed upon arrival was how nice the room was: music volume was perfect, flawless lighting to help you see properly and great distance between tables to provide a sence of intimacy. The tasting menu was reasonably priced - wines are far too expensive however - and in proportion was correct. There were however a number of issues... More

Enjoyed a lovely meal at Zazu this evening! My wife and I went there on a friend's recommendation and were more than impressed with the service, the food and the ambience. The staff was very helpful and spoke fluent English which made the night a lot easier (it isn't that common to find here in Quito). The food was exquisite... More

My partner and I went here based of other reviews and were not disappointed. The service was impeccable. We had a creative shrimp ceviche, seared tuna presented beautifully on a slate platter and salmon with a crispy skin with herbs. It was topped off with their version of apple pie. Every thing was excellent.

Zazu is probably one of the nicest restaurants and one most "successful" meals I had in Ecuador. From beginning to end the food was exceptional, and the ambiance was beautiful. Do The Tasting Menu - all my friends did the chef's tasting menus and it was a spectacular way to experience the range of the chef's food. I myself did... More

I recommend TUNA - it was perfect or even better than perfect. We took also ceviche and pasta with foie gras - these were also great! At the beginning they served bread and butter - the butter had great taste and it was super-soft. Prepare to spend some USD but it is worth it :)

If you have only one dinner in Quito, make sure it is at Zazu. I have eaten at restaurants all over the world and my meal at Zazu was one of the best ever. Be sure to make reservations far in advance.
