      Best meal in Quito
      We had the pleasure of dining here after a recommendation from a local tour guide (thanks Paul!). So happy we went! We had the stewed lamb and it was absolutely delicious. Excellent wine selection. There was also beautiful live music by a guitarist/singer. We'd totally dine here again on our next visit to Quito!

      Achiote is a true gem!!!
      What an incredible find!! Achiote is a very special place. Andrés, the chef, is accompanied by his mother and father in this truly home-style restaurant located in what used to be his grandmother’s house (she is also the originator of many of the recipes, combined with some interesting international dishes). The garage was renovated to be the kitchen and the dining area is what used to be the yard. The food was spectacular, starting with the ceviche pescadora, followed by sea bass with yuca frita and sautéed vegetables. And the chocolate torta was out of this world. So much texture and rich, full chocolate flavor, made with cacao. And what an incredible value!! Whoever thought you could get sea bass for under $25?! And the service was warm, welcoming, and very knowledgeable about the source of the menu ingredients. Highly recommend!!!

      Our favorite restaurant in Quito!
      Our favorite restaurant in Quito. True Ecuadorian homemade food! The empanada de mejido was absolutely delicious and the sopa de locro was the best we have had! The Maito de pescado (seabass) was delicious with 2 sides (llapingachos & yucas fritas.) The grand finale (dessert) the plantain cake with ice cream was out of this world! Icing on the cake was having the Chef come to our table and explained to us it was a family owned business and the actual building was his grandmother”s home! Could not have asked for a better last dinner in Quito- before heading back home.

      A family run restaurant with traditional ingredients and a modern approach.
      We loved our meal. The food was fresh and delicious. The service was excellent. The chef came to our table to talk with us about traditional Andean cuisine and his whole family’s involvement in the restaurant.

      Outstanding dinner
      We stayed in Quito for two nights prior to our departure to Galápagos Islands, and wanted to try some local food. We were delighted with Achiote! Outstanding food and service, I would highly recommend this family-owned restaurant.

      A birthday Celebration
      We were celebrating my brother’s birthday and enjoyed the entire experience. The hospitality was exceptional, and I enjoyed the explanations of the food. The granddaughter of one of the chefs came out when the food was being delivered, which was delicious
