La Ronda is one if the recommended places to visit in Quito. As a tourist you may find it interesting, picturesque but it's not my favorite. The restaurants and cafes are not worth it. Take some pictures and walk around.

Very charming street full of little shops and restaurants (very touristy as well). I went near noon though and it was empty and most of the stores closed. Didn't have time to go back, but felt like it would be better later.

This is an evening entertainment, walking street in Quito Old Town which has been around since the 1700s. There are plenty of shops and restaurants, but the quality varies greatly, from really good to so-so.

If you love walking, than this is the place for you... In here you will see a lot of bars, restaurants, and people doing art in the streets. You don't have to wait for the weekend, it's live mostly every day

Restaurants, bars, theatre, street life. This is vibrant - evenings Wed-Sat. Good for drinks and for eating and close to the historic district. Prices are budget and quality good. Tourist police ensure safety, too. Get some of this.

It was nice to blend in with the hundreds of locals flooding La Ronda on a weekend. There are all kinds of restaurants with a variety of price points. It's easy to find an upbeat bar with a live band or a quieter bar to chat with friends. Unlike Mariscal, the atmosphere felt more authentic and way less pricy!

Nice little street. Easy to miss had a few restaurants which all offer the same local food at reasonable prices for the location. Check out the chocolate and honey store. Very nice products with knowledgable employees who love what they do.

It's a street that look like back in old times with different restaurants, bars, jewelry stores and souvenirs stores. If you want to have a good time walking trying different foods, candy, pastries and drinks. Best time to go is at night!!
