This was our last night in Quito and worth it. We were not that hungry and the starters/apps were perfect. We finally got to eat cuy (guinea pig), without having to look at the whole animal on our plates. Attentive service, conversations with the staff and a taxi at the door when we left.

I don't usually write restaurant reviews since my bar is pretty high in San Francisco, but this place is top-notch. I had the 5-courses, and everything was perfect. A must-do if you're in the area!

If you are looking for fantastic food with a Quito touch of fine dining this is the place for you. We had the five course and seven course prefix meal the food was great and the service was high touch but not stuffy.

We had not read any reviews of Zazu before going there a couple of evenings ago, on the recommendation of our tour operator. So we arrived - and were very pleasantly surprised. The building is smart, modern and decorated in a way that both impresses and relaxes the customers. The service is first class, attentive, patient and with a precise... More

We went to Zazu on a Friday night with high expectations after reading so many lovely reviews. We had a reservation for very early at 630 and they weren't ready for service so we had a drink in the bar. The decor was welcoming and comfortable. The bartender made a great dirty martini on the rocks. They served us spiced... More

It is a nice place, we waited around 30 min to be sited. Then the service was very slow it took almost an hour to get the food. Then then the food had too much salt. The price is ridiculous luckily we had a discount. The nice part is you can get good hamburgers next to the restaurant after the... More

As we enjoyed our evening at Zazu's, we pondered: Why can't other restaurants observe this perfect dining experience, and attain it in their establishment? The host, Lenin, was immediately sensitive to our needs, and made us feel comfortable and welcome. Our server, Bridgette, was always there whenever we needed something, yet not hovering or obtrusive. The restaurant was decorated simply... More

We had a wonderful dinner our last night in Quito. I had the best mojito in the world. Everything from the soup, to the entree, to the dessert was fantastic. We literally had the best service. We never had to ask for anything. There was always a waiter or management staff checking on each table. If you have to go... More

Great upscale establishment in Quito. We had the Cebiche Peruano, folie gras the a la plancha con pesto de jalapeno sobre plátano maduro, parseley de Adorno, crouton abajo, aceite de Olivia y reduction de balsamic.This is a strong dish and needs to follow a meat. Risotto de langosta, Atun con Pistachio are good. But not as good as above.

We had a great dinner, the cazuela is delicious. David, our waiter and Lenin, the host, took great care of us. We really enjoyed our conversation with Lenin about San Francisco and world travel at the bar after dinner - let the bartender make you a cocktail of his choice. I highly recommend this place to anyone who appreciates fine... More
