The first thing you notice when you enter is the serenity of the decor; tones of dove grey offset by crisp white walls and linens with one red rose on each table is a portent of a relaxing evening to come. Each course is graciously presented by the staff without fanfare or ceremony because beautifully prepared food needs nothing more... More

We visiting Zazu with a large travel group. They provided a ceviche preparation experience with champagne - fun an delicious. Our three course meal (starting with ceviche) was beautiful and delicious. The service, especially the head waiter and sommelier went above and beyond. I would definitely visit Zazu again if back in Quito.

Consistently excellent over the years it is my favored upscale restaurant in Ecuador. In a small alley off Av Republica it has a modern, elegant and comfortable setting. It offers a large and a smaller degustation menu as well as a la carte. The cuisine is peruvian with some mediterranean fusion and everything we had, ceviche, crab, fish and meat... More

I had a solo dinner while on a business trip, so decided to check the tasting menu. I asked to change a dish tough, which was immediately accepted, excellent note. the menu proved to be great, accompanied by a very good pisco sour and a good option of red wine. The whole menu was great, but the 'lechon' proved to... More

This is a Fine restaurant with wonderful design and atmosphere. The wait staff helps you from the moment you park your car until you leave. The wine selection is extensive although we sampled it visually. The food is South American with many fusion elements. Our dishes came with bsmall dollops of chimichurri and spicey mango. The complete menu would satisfy... More

We tried the 4 &7 course... More
