This restaurant really deserves its top spot on Trip Advisor ! Delicious food (world class and innovative), great service, drinks and wine were perfect. We are both vegetarian and they were able to accommodate us. There was a few options with cheese, and even some non dairy options. I had the quinoa dish which was similar to a risotto but... More

I chose this place based in the TripAdvisor recommendations I read. I can definitely say it is worthy of its number one rating. Since this was going to be my splurge night out of my trip I opted for the seven course chef's tasting menu. It was wonderful. The first three courses were exceptional. This plus two glasses of wine,... More

My friend and I were looking to have a nice dinner and when we read the amazing reviews on this place, we thought we would give it a try. It's very trendy and modern - but I wouldn't recommend going here if you are really hungry. The portion sizes are quite small. I have to say the presentation and service... More

What a delight to have found this restaurant. The seven course tasting menu started with "stone crab three ways" and soared from there. Cannot say enough good things about my night in Quito thanks to Zazu

The menu is fantastic at Zazu. Anything you pick from it is very well done up to excellent. The presentation of the food deserves a praise too. However, the wines are not up to the high standard as the food is. But that seems to be an 'Ecuadorian issue'.

We went for the 7 courses meal, a great choice. Some of the dishes were ecuadorian inspired, others you could find in most restaurants in big cities, but everything was tasty and well-prepared. We had a great meal with wine among friends, service is professional. Totally recommend.

The food at Zazu is thoughtfully prepared and beautifully presented. Service was outstanding and prices, while on the high end for Quito, were very reasonable, given the quality and portions. The only thing that is lacking at Zazu is a proper cocktail menu.

I had a 5 course lobster menú which is difficult to know which dish was better than the other. The chef explained the dishes with such detail taht it made you taste all the ingredients. The wine was a Pino Noir wich was perfect for every dish. I will be bach verry soon and hope to repait such wonderful experience.
