Zazu is an amazing Resturant, the service and attention to detail is fantastic and there new Chef Pablo Manitilla comes out to make sure everything if to your satisfaction. Hands down one of the best places to eat in Quito.

A friend told me that this was the number one restaurant in Quito and that we just had to visit it before we left. Knowing that it was very expensive, I decided to read the reviews on Trip Advisor to help me make up my mind. After reading the reviews, I had some mixed feelings. An expensive but mediocre meal...

The food at Zazu was very good - though the octopus, which I had been anticipating, was a bit overcooked. We also ordered the crab cevice (excellent) and the shrimp and grouper (good).

I went to this restaurant following tripadvisor reviewers and I was very satisfied with the ambiance and the food. We had 2 Chevice dishes and more fish dishes - Everything was excellent - I went for the cheaper white wine bottle they had ( $24 ) and to my surprise that was quite good as well.

We were very impressed with the menu selections and quality of food. We had been told this was the best restaurant in Quito and were not disappointed. The wine list is quite good although had not been updated and we had to order 3 bottles of wine before we found one they had in stock. The service was excellent.
