Friendly staff, clean and better local style food than we'd had elsewhere! The green plantain stew was amazing, with the biggest prawns ever! And good cocktails :)

We found this place disappointing. The dishes were overpriced and the food very bland. There is nothing special about this restaurant. Service wasn't bad though, the best dish was the free appetizer we were given.

We ate dinner here on Feb. 6. Food was incredibly bland and tasteless. Quite expensive compared to other places in the area. Service was polite but very slow, and the joint was darn near empty. Trust me on this......skip this establishment!

Wish I'd known about Achiote before my last night in Quito! Excellent food and Capitan Daniel provided exquisite service. We highly recommend this restaurant - the hornemos and seco de Chivo were delicious.

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.
