Lovely corner of Quito

I was in town for business meetings and was able to grab an hour free to explore this neighborhood with a friend. There is great energy here. A bit touristy, but still nice.

Calle La Ronda is a charming street lined with artist's studios, craft shops, restaurants and cafes. Most are closed during siesta, but we were able to find a splendid ice cream shop upstairs. DElightful.

We stayed just around the corner from Calle La Ronda and visited several times. This is a fun street to stroll along. It's very quiet during the weekdays. Very noisy and busy Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. There is less going on Sunday through Wednesday nights, which was my favorite time there (still plenty happening). I enjoyed the historic architecture,... More

Some great memories made in this place. Take a stroll and enjoy some great sites at night. We found great drink specials and certain nights of the week had some cool themes.

The narrow, winding cobblestone streets and building architecture are gorgeous, and it's definitely worth it to to go and see that, but there's nothing else there worth seeing or visiting. The restaurants all have desparate workers out front vying for your business, and they were all mostly empty. The ones we went in were dirty and in disrepair. This may... More

Calle LA Ronda has a rich history that has been superbly restored. Breathtakingly beautiful, bright, exciting, fun and safe! We went late at night and had a wonderful time. There were police milling about so we felt extremely comfortable walking, eating, taking pictures and visiting shops.

Quaint street but only has restaurants open at weekends and some evenings, during the day everything is closed up.

The narrow walking street filled with restaurant offer traditional foods ranging from high price to wallet friendly one. Must try those giant empanadas and the traditional drinks here...you will not missed it because the restaurant put the big pot and the showcase of giant panadas right at the front.

It's 2 blocks of pedestrian street only, and many of the shops are not very interesting (most are popular restaurants with cheap offerings, many with live music), but it's worth on a weekend night to see the Quito population - especially low-middle class families and teenagers - come to enjoy a night out. Only recommended if you are interested in... More

If you don't want to go to La Mariscal, La Ronda is about the only other option at night. It's less touristy, and safe, even though it has a bad rep. There's private security, police on every corner, and a tourist police office as well. There are plenty of places to listen to music or dance, and there are several... More
