Founded in 1954, Quito’s started as a local fish market. Later, a few tables were added and family recipes were relied on for the basic fare. As it’s popularity grew so did the dining room. Today, there is a cozy indoor dining area with a fireplace and during the warm months, the patio opens up to beautiful sunsets in Bristol harbor.

Visited Quito’s for lunch. We sat on the patio with a great view of Bristol Bay. The seafood was extremely fresh and delicious. Never been disappointed here. Highly recommend for RI sea fare

All dining was at the outdoor patio. Food was typical northeast seafood fare. Good views of the bay.

Have been going to Quitos for years and every meal has been superb. Fresh, perfectly cooked seafood accompanied by delicious broccoli and smashed potatoes is our usual fare, but we've eaten across the menu and it is all excellent. A jewel in the bosom of...Bristol.More

I've driven by this a million times but heard it is a local favorite. Easy to find, plenty of parking. This is right on the water. We went during the reopening phase of COVID-19. The place was abiding by the reopening rules which was good....The service was good, the food was good, the view was extraordinary. Overall it was a good experience.More

Got take out instead of outdoor dining , only tables available were at noisy entrance for outdoor ,with questionable distancing. . While getting take out , during order process the girl at register had her mask hanging below her nose , just about covering her...mouth . The signage outside the building states wear a mask for patrons .I feel insulted when the management does not adhere to their stipulations. Otherwise the food was fine but could only give a 3 for health safety.More

What a mess! We ordered coconut mango shrimp - everyone spit it out as it tasted like bleach! The waitress said she “took a bite of ours”???? What!!! And said we may. It be used to the mango!!! Our food came out and 3 or...the 4 orders were wrong. The baked stuffed lobster was terrible (the stuffing was like glue).... the coleslaw tasted “fruity” Out Bill was 230.90 for lunch and it was literally the most horrible meal we have had in years!!! Great atmosphere, location and nice staff but DO NOT GO HERE until they get a real chef who know how to cook Lastly,,,,, the food gave three of us Montezuma’s revenge - Go across the street and eat at Portsidr Grill!!!More

Despite the increased take-out business during social distancing, Quito's continues to produce excellent food and exceptional service. Order ahead online and you will not be disappointed.

The menu has everything you could expect from an ocean side seafood restaurant. The lobster role (buttered version) was delicious with a healthy portion of meat that makes the market price less scary. I really enjoyed the fried fish sandwich and those french fries that...came with the meal were delicious, so good ketchup was not necessary. Grab Quitos takeout and walk 10 steps to the boardwalk and enjoy it while watching the sun set over the harbor. It's a must do for the summerMore

Every once in a while you have a defining meal in a restaurant and today was it. My meal at Quito's today was one of the worst meals I've ever had. I paid $27 for the mess shown in the photos; the scallop plate. $27...dollars for 9 lukeluke warm scallops, 2 tablespoons of coleslaw, broccoli, and....it came with about 1 teaspoon of tartar sauce. There literally wasn't enough tartar sauce for the 9 scallops. If you're going to pay $3 per scallop the least they could is make sure to give you enough tartar for entire meal. But to make up for it they have curbside service, great right, with the covid-19 situation. Unfortunately they don't tell you they charge you 10% for the curbside service and then ask if you want to leave a tip. We've had about 10-12 meals during the pandemic and have used the curbside service at other places. Not once, NOT ONCE, have we been charged for curbside service. One of my top 5 worse meals experiences ever. Will never eat here again!!!More
