Lazy day relaxing, eating and enjoying the view.

We had the New England Clam Chowder, shrimp cocktail and a fish sandwich. All were very good. The shrimp were much larger than what we get in Wisconsin so 2 were plenty. Relaxing view of the water from the outside seating area. I would stop here again.

Quito's is a nice place to eat because it's on Bristol harbor and it's a beautiful spot. I've tried their clam cakes and fish and chips several times, once and only once were the clam cakes great. They had a slight flavor of chorizo in the batter that made them wonderful and not like everyone else. If it was a... More

Drinks, appitizers and dinner on the porch with friends. Sunshine in our eyes was a bit of an issue. Lots of menu items.

At times you need to relax and wish for an oldie restaurant on the waterfront. That's what Quito's is all about! With a mostly fish based menu you are sure to feel exactly where you are. The view is great, the patio cool and breezy. The staff attentive and nice. The wait is short, you don't need a reservation. Quito... More

Been there a number of times over the past few years, The place is on the bay, is not elegant but reminiscent of a true seafood house. Seating is inside or outside. Lobster rolls are excellent, recent salmon entree with watermelon also very good. Service is prompt. Menu very comprehensive, even showing pasta dishes. Would get there before 7:00 or... More

My friend and I stopped here for lunch. I had a great salad with Goat cheese, pears, etc. she had fried scallops that were delicious. The Bloody Mary was yummy as well. Beautiful spot directly on Bristol Harbor.

After reading all the negative reviews about the service here, I was expecting to be disappointed, but wanted to try the food. I don't know what was going on before, but the service there was excellent. The girls were pleasant, efficient and checked on us often. The food was outstanding, and, yes, the check was high because of what we... More

While we waited over an hour for a table for two in the middle of a weekday afternoon, it proved to be a really enjoyable experience. The food and drinks were great - Red Sangria, Lobster Roll and Fish & Chips - and the fact that we ate outside, right on the water, made it even better.

My wife had not been home to see her family for 8 years. We were determined to get good seafood and her family recommended this one and we were delighted with this little place. It has inside dining but we elected to sit outside under the cover and enjoyed the water and passing boats. We started with the New England... More

First time to this place, referred by friends who grew up in the area and were very happy with our lunch here. Located right on the waterfront, it's a small place with inside seating and outdoor patio. There was a wait for the patio at lunch on a Friday, so we opted for inside. It was a quaint little place...
