During our recent two-day trip to Quito, we dined at Zazu based on Trip Advisor ratings. We arrived early in the evening and were impressed by the smart, contemporary atmosphere and initial reception by the maitre d' and our waiter. Delighted as we were by the ambiance, the experience seemed to drop off from the initial expectations. Although the menu... More

My wife and I were in/out of Quito a few times throughout our month long Ecuadorean adventure and made a point of checking out Zazu after reading several reviews that highly recommended a stop. To provide some context, we were about a 45 minute cab ride away as we were staying close to the Airport but we still made the... More

I have been there three times over five years and the food continues to be among the best you can have in Quito. It is located in a small street in the new city and the interior is well designed, stylish and comfortable. This time i had the bloody mary ceviche: the idea and description looked original and interesting but... More

I had a chance to eat here again last week. If in the past I tought it was great, I feel even stronger for Zazu´s service and gastronomy now! It has to be among the top 5 of Quito! We had a sampler of ecuadorian food. If you hesitate on what to order, this may be a great option. Like... More

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
