One of the best restaurants in the Marsical Square section of Quito. Excellent traditional Ecuadorian cuisine. Fantastic ceviche and empanadas appetizers. Ecuadorean specialties of pulled pork and fish dishes were excellent.

We were a group of 17 people, we found that the ambiance and service personnel are great,but it took approximately two hours to get our food.The food and house wine were not that great either.

Great range of Ecuadorian and international flavours. Good wine, and steak cooked perfectly. Not the cheapest place: $25-30pp with drinks, but well worth it if you've been eating beans and rice for a month.

We enjoyed a lovely lunch at Achiote. While we only managed to sample a small array of the Ecuadorian cuisine available, we were very impressed with the flavours. I enjoyed a steak complemented with a sweet passionfruit sauce (great combination), accompanied with vegetables and salad. We were also offered a complementary starter with both sweet and spicy sauce options. This... More

Very nice. Great potato cheese soup. Skewers were good as well as grilled veggies plate. Nice cold cerveza. A little slow, but that might be how it goes in Ecuador. Many Ecuadorian dishes.

Delicious food presented elegantly, yet reasonably priced. Terrific service by professional, caring servers. They have a decent selection of beers and wines, local and imported. The ceviche is to die for! Seafood is fresh and prepared with wonderful sauces. You have a great view of the street for people watching!

This restaurant has good ambiance but all the foods are just so so... You can get it anywhere else on the street. Not worth going.

We were there mid-week for a 7:00pm dinner; there was 1 other table for 2 and 2 tables of 15 or more, all seated at roughly the same time. The good: The service was truly exceptional under the circumstances. We didn't have to wait to have our order taken, and the food was served at the right temperature in a... More
