this place is a solid disappointment: I have been several times and the food is consistently mediocre. prices are extravagant, the atmosphere non-descript and attended mostly by gringos with more money than taste.

I had dinner with some business guests while in Quito. I really liked this restaurant. It was full of people on a Monday night but the service was excellent. Not intrusive, they were there when you needed it. The wine menu was excellent too. Short on the European side but more than acceptable on the Latin American wine offer. It... More

We had a lovely lunch with Galapagos lobster, seafood, pasta and the perfect sashimi! Deserts were amazing! Make yourself a present - go to Zazu!

Really nice and friendly place to eat. The food has a delicate presentation and a really nice mix of taste. The enviroment makes this restaurant a must visit and return every time. Deserts amazing. Booking in advance is necesary.

I´ve read some of the reviews given to this restourant and with enthusiasm I whent to visit it. I think the service did not take me in account because I was alone, meaning that it was very slow and I personally think I deserved better attention in a restourant of this height. The prices are high and the amount of... More

I recently went to ZAZU and was surprised to find a new style of cuisine than what we have been used to since its inception some 10 years ago. Zazu traditionally has had a Peruvian style menu and has always been superb but now I found a new style, call it Ecuador Gourmet. He uses the best possible Ecuadorian produce... More

On our first night in Quito we were told to head to Zazu and enjoy a good dinner. We were welcomed with several good fresh pastries and water. Our starter was a tomato soup which was fantastic, creamy and with special flavours adding to the tomatoes. For the main course we had two fish dishes. The Ahi Tuna was spectacular... More

We came here for a special meal out on our honeymoon and it definitively was that. We had fantastic mojitos as an apertif, then some great starters, tuna tartare and wagu beef carpaccio. The beef was immense with poached quails eggs and Roquefort foam, really special. We then had crispy suckling pig, which actually tasted like it had been deep... More
