Fabulous seafood!

We have travelled many places in the world, and consider ourselves foodies. This rivals Le Bernadin in NYC for innovative fish preparations . We had the 4 course and 7 course menus, and found the fish better than the meat courses, but we were thrilled with this restaurant and the outstanding... read more

A group of 7 friends showed up without reservations on a busy Saturday night after a flight from Peru...the food was outstanding and worth the journey, but it was surpassed by the gracious hospitality of the restaurant staff in welcoming us, as unkempt and disheveled from our travels as we were...throughout the meal there was not the slightest off note...

My husband and I had a delicious dinner at Zazu last night. We couldn't decide on specific menu items so we decided on two tasting menus: one 7 course and one 4 course that combined, gave us a sampling of almost everything on the menu. We switched plates at every course so we could each try everything. Not every selection... More

ZAZU is one classy, beautiful restaurant with a cozy atmosphere and contemporary design. No matter what you order, the bill will come to sky high, but the experience will be worth your time and will be memorable. So, whether it is a special date or your birthday celebration that you would like to remember as special for a while, head... More

Wow! After readiing the CNN article about the best 15 restaurants for 2015 and, a trip to Ecuador and the Galapagos looming,we had to get there. Our amazing tour guides from NaturalHabitat were left with the task of making it happen and, they delivered! We had a group of 8 that had all traveled together for the previous week. We... More

After reading all those reviews I had high expectations about this restaurant. My friend ordered the risotto con frutos del mar. Flavor was blend, all the shellfish lacked salt or some olive oil and the risotto itself taste like the one from the box. I ordered the 4 dishes tasking menu. Presentation was nice and service was great but in... More

Zazu bills itself as one of the top restaurants in Quito and it definitely has a modern and pleasant decor. The food was generally good. I had the ceviche appetizer which was good but not great, the steak dinner was excellent but the marrow side was bland and unpleasant in terms of mouthfeel. Desert was good but nothing to write...
