Lovely location, the food is decent, but the service is slow. But still there is always a crowd in summer, so be prepared to wait.

I came here in March of 2014 with a good friend for lunch. We sat at the bar inside and I marveled at how great the remodeling was. It really fits in with its water side location. Though we arrived at 1, at first it was quiet but within 20 minutes, the place was packed to the brim with people... More

Right at the start of the bike trail, on the bay. Very nice, fresh seafood. One of the only places I saw fried mussels, as a special - those were incredible. The price increase in the last few years took away from the rating.

If you are looking for fresh, local seafood you cannot go wrong with Quito's. The fried seafood is light and not at all greasy. The pasta dishes are enough for more than one serving and are unbelievably flavorful. It does get very busy in the summer so put your name in and wait for the magic to happen!

Quito's is a Bristol institution. If you are looking for some authentic RI seafood- this is the place! The dining area is most beautiful in the summer and early fall- but still great in the winter. It is not high class, just great, authentic RI food!

The atmosphere was very cozy. The service was good. I had the crab soup and a lobster roll and it was very good. Definitely going back.

We were boating and found ourselves by Bristol yacht club, the club was not serving food at that time, so we asked the lady bosun. She suggested Quitos on the opposite bank. For a lunch time snack it was good. The weather was dry and warm so we sat outside. The service was quick and friendly. The food was very... More

My son, who is a local college student, wanted to go out for lobster but his schedule did not allow enough time to go to Benjamin's in Newport for their $17.50 boiled lobster lunch (includes chowder, salad and a boiled lobster, see my review), so we went to Quito's. He brought a friend. They both ordered the steamed lobster platter.... More

A wonderful place for fresh seafood, seems a little over priced for fried food, although I realize food costs are going up everywhere. A great place to bring out of town guests who want the local basic seafood

This is a great little seafood eatery. Nothing fancy, but good tasty food. I've been here a few times and have never been disappointed. It wasn't easy working out what to eat that was gluten-free, but the waitress was happy to go back and forth to the chef until I was happy with the order.
