I have a bay area bias. The food where I live is fantastic. I recognize how this effects my experiences at restaurants. However, Zazu gets so much love, and is hailed at the top restaurant in Quito by many reviewers. And, there is just no way that it reaches this level. I ordered the ribeye, and it arrived with only... More

Weeks before leaving for Ecuador, my daughter did a lot of homework on places that we must go to. Zazu's was one of the top rated places that to go and have dinner. The food was good, but not worth the price. We ate at dozens of places over our 3 weeks in Ecuador that was tons better than Zazu's... More

Choose the 7 course tasting menu! It was fantastic. Zazu is beautifully decorated. "Dress-up" and make a reservation for this restaurant that is popular with the locals.

The 7 course taster menu was delicious, predominately fish but ended with pork and a tasty chocolate desert.... More

Delicious meal and great service. Only complaint was I felt the wait to join our table was a little longer then expected, however we may have cause a mix up in our numbers so probably our fault! Amazing Pisco Sour to start followed by the 7 course tasting menu which was delicious, and a great bottle of wine. Expensive but... More

the ceviche starter I had had far too much sauce and was not really fresh enough overall service was a little slow the restaurant was surprisingly empty given the good reviews we had read. everything was clean and airy and the tables are not too close together so conversation was quite easy the food was not particularly special
