Overall extraordinary experience. Great ambiance combined with friendly/attentive service and creative savory cuisine. We were particularly impressed with the ceviche's and seafood. Some real gems on the wine list at modest prices. Jan is an engaging host with a passion for creating a special experience for his guests. Exceeded all of our dining expectations in Quito! Bravo!!

I reserved this restaurant online for 15 people. The communication was great. The restaurant is very hip and it has great amazing food. Our table of 15 was attended by only one waiter which I think it was a mistake. He kept coming back for us to repeat the orders and even at the end for the bill we had... More

Had a fantastic evening here in January . The food and it's presentation was outstanding.The local tuna ceviche and the fish tiradito were probably the best that we had ever sampled. Service was perfect and the tower shaped wine cave held an extensive collection that almost made choosing a difficulty.

On our way to Zazu in June 2014, my aunt's phone was stolen out of our hands... When we explained to the hostess what happened, she went out of her way to help us and gave us her personal phone to use to report the theft and shut down the device; she didn't mind if it was an international number!...

Just loved this restaurant from the 5' tall long stem roses in vase in foyer when entering (not a typo...wonderful and a sight to see), to friendly staff, to fine dining selections....taxi from hotel for $5 and well worth the ride!

Location is a little bit awkward - make sure you can give the taxi driver some help in finding this place. It is in the centre of the city but a little difficult to find. Once you get there you find a very pretty restaurant with a super nice bar. Great service and good food. All around a very well... More

Been here at least once or twice a year since it opened. This June my wife held her birthday party at Zazu for a group of ten. A great time was had by all with the food being delicious and the wine choices very appropriate for the occasion. The staff were most helpful in providing input for the tasting menu.... More

They said that Zazu is the best restaurant in Quito, and they're right. Zazu had the best food we had during our entire trip to Ecuador. Appetizers were out of this world-my wife and I loved the asparagus salad. Lots of great entrees to choose from. And the chocolate dessert-so much fudge! So hedonistic! We greatly appreciated the attentive service... More

Just perfect! Service, food, ambiance...10 out of 10....5 ft tall roses in the entrance. Wish we had Zazu in the USA. Go there! Good job, guys. Best of 3 fine dining meals in Quito.
