Stopped in Zazu because of a Trip Advisor review and it was 2 blocks from where we were staying. The review was right, Zazu was great. Our table order the chef's tasting menu and the black angus sirloin. What a great experience, the dinners were expertly prepared and the service was outstanding. The sirloin is worth the trip back to... More

Over the last several years, I have had the pleasure of dining at Zazu on multiple occasions. The entire experience at Zazu is excellent - great food, professional service, and a beautiful setting. I keep returning to Zazu and have never left disappointed. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

A very memorable experience with some excellent cooking - quite a formal restaurant and more 'international' than Ecuadorian but most enjoyable all helped by lovely attentive and helpful staff - mainly served by David, who has been mentioned in earlier reviews - he deserves more than 5 stars! If you are visiting Quito best you book ahead

Wow. This restaurant is incredible. We were treated with the utmost respect and joy by the host Lenin, and then served an indescribable dinner by our server. I'm telling you, if you want to experience your food like never before, come to Zazu. My wife and my taste buds were blown away by such outstanding flavor and so much variety.

Amazing ambience, something like a New York feel restaurant with impeccable service. The food is quite tasty. However during my stay I did have better octopus and ceviches from other restaurants. I had veal as my main entree it was cooked to perfection and served with a gnocchi to die for so rich and tasty. My friend had the filet... More

My boyfriend and I visited Zazú on a Friday night because it was very highly recommended. He does not speak Spanish, which can be challenging in Quito, but not at Zazu. Our waiter, David, spoke fluent English and was attentive and professional. We also received menus in both English and Spanish. He ordered the tasting menu and everything he had... More

the food at Zazu is a sort of Ecuadorian fusion of native Ecuadorian and modern dishes. Zarzuela is without a doubt a 5 star restaurant, both on a national and international level. Prices are high by Ecuadorian standards but very much less expensive than similar high end restaurants in the U.S. The service is impeccable, atmosphere romantic. The ceviche, sole... More

This is a very good restaurant, which (as a New Yorker) I feel comfortable saying. I dined here in September 2016 having the Ribeye, and my girlfriend having the Filet Mignon. The steaks were cooked perfectly, and seasoned well. The cherry tomatoes were exceptionally tasty, and most of the vegetables are grown in the restaurant's garden (according to our waiter).They...
