Long running restaurant in Bristol. Great food. Great location. Best clam cakes in town. Lobster roll is pretty good too.

Late dinner here outside on the deck. View of the water was nice. Can't say the same for the food. Most of it was cold and they ran out of mashed potatoes. Service and presentation acceptable.

Took my in laws out to lunch as we spent the day in Bristol. The new england clam chowder came out at the perfect temperature to dig into and had tons of clams. I had the fish tacos which I always get when I go out and these were some if the best I have had. Chunky portions of fish... More

I've gone to Quitos many times and it always exceeds expectations. It's my go-to spot when friends visit from out of town as it encompasses the best of New England. It's on a beautiful spot in the water with indoor and protected outdoor seating. The atmosphere is casual and cozy. Anything you order will be better than you expect and... More

Four of us went to Quito's last night. I'm a local resident, so I avoid Quito's during the summer. I am not into 45 minute to 1.5 hour waits. However, in early spring or late summer/fall, it's a lot easier to get in, so that's when I am drawn there. We started with littleneck clams in garlic and olive oil.... More

Enjoyed the wonderful lobster salad here! Others in my party had the lobster rolls that were generous and delicious! We shared the carrot and parsnips side dish which are a nice change from potatoe fries . We sat out side by the water and had great service , friendly and fast!

This is a small place in bristol by a marina and a park at the end of the bike path. Great place to relax and have some fresh seafood.

What a fabulous waterfront location in historic Bristol! The food was fabulous, the helpings generous, the wait-people friendly and accommodating. The fried clams rival the best we've had anywhere! The breading was light, crisp, not dough-like, and the bellies were so sweet. The tartar sauce was especially good, almost like wine with a little bouquet on the palette after tasting.... More

We arrived for dinner on a Tuesday evening and we were seated immediately. I was so looking forward to a fried whole belly clam meal and was disappointed. The coleslaw was good but the clams looked and tasted like clam strips.

Quito's is a waterfront seafood restaurant with inside and outside dining. I had a fried clam dinner that was excellent. Moderate pricing, good service and nice atmosphere. Onsite parking is not adequate on busy nights, but there is also nearby street parking with a very short walk.

Thank WildWillyR
