This restaurant was near our hotel in the La Mariscal district. It appeared to be known for local food. We both had local dishes; mine had roasted pork. The food was very good and the service was excellent--friendly and knowledgeable. We would go here again.

They started the meal with a delicious small appetizer. We shared a plate of empanadas (chicken,fish, cheese) and then had ceviche. Also a rich potato soup with avocado. Everything was beautifully tasty. Service was very friendly. Prices and environment are a little upscale. Worth it!

ACHIOTE ECUADOR-CUISINE, we are the entrepreneurship of a small Quito family that has an extensive culinary tradition, where you can not only enjoy Ecuadorian food, but also feel the warmth of a home and a country located in the heart of the Andes . The restaurant offers an unforgettable cultural experience, with an extensive menu of innovative recipes that includes vegetarian options and a diversity of flavors that challenge the palate and bring an exquisite and renewed touch to Ecuadorian cuisine. All this in an intimate atmosphere, accompanied by good music and bilingual attention; in one of the most emblematic neighborhoods of Quito, La Mariscal. The ingredients used are organic, endemic and of high quality, always subjected to a process of gourmet preparation that pays homage to a town that knows how to make the heart happy from the palate.
