“place to be at night”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

The place is alive, full of people. Live music everywhere. Do not know if it was because of carnival. Lots of restaurants, mostly ecuadorian food. You have to go after 6pm.

“My most favorite street”
Reviewed February 13, 2013 via mobile

If you would like to experience colonial Quito, this is it. Ancient houses with balconies and flowers. Narrow, cobblestone, winding street. Shops and restaurants abound, Latin music playing! At night the street becomes very crowded, during the day, less so. Stop in any of the restaurants for canelazo ( hot, spiced, spiked drink) common to the Sierra, and an empanada de viento. You won't be disappointed. There is also a great cafe called the Khypu towards the bottom of the street that specializes in hot chocolate and coffee. Cozy and friendly place.

“Good start to reclaiming an neighborhood”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

We went to La ronda during the day. Not sure what it is like at night. There were several artisan shops that were nice. I believe that this is a work in progress. Wish I had enough $$ to come back because I saw a poncho I wanted and didn't buy.....

“Hidden Gem - a must see at night!”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

I had an absolute splendid time at La Ronda while visiting Quito.

Local friends were hyping La Ronda to me as a great way to spend the evening.

La Ronda is a quaint little street in the historical district of Quito. The street is actually more like an alleyway that spans the length of the small district, descending downward and filled on both sides with shops, bars, and restaurants all with live music.

You can dip into any place for a drink, a bite, or some local music and entertainment.

It's really the best thing I did in Quito at night.

It is also walking distance from other historical district attractions like the Plaza Grande and the Street of 7 Crosses (one of which I think is the #2 attraction in Quito).

Enjoy!

“My favorite.”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

We were in Calle La Ronda two different times, once at night, which is not to be missed, and once in the afternoon when most of the shops were closed. Still an absolute must when visiting Quito.
