This is a wonderful place to eat on the water in Bristol, RI. The kitchen has a portuguese flair and This is probably the best seafood I have ever tasted! When the weather is warm, dining waterside is preferred but the dining room is also quite comfortable.
This restaurant is a staple for the locals and sought after by the vacationer. So, arrive early but if you need to wait, before to get comfortable on the benches, partake in one of their delicious cocktails. If you are with a group, I suggest that each gets a different entree, and share.
You will come back again and again!

I had lunch today at Quito's while visiting a friend in Rhode Island. The restaurant is right on the water and the dining area on the porch was very pleasant. Service was fast and friendly and the menu so extensive that it was tough to make a decision on a luncheon entree. The house salad was basic, crisp and fresh. I finally chose shrimp, scallops, and the tenderest calamari I have ever had over pasta with their Mediterranean sauce, a tomato sauce with garlic, kalamata olives, and peperoncini peppers. The sauce was superb and the seafood perfectly cooked. I would definitely go back and would probably order the exact same meal. Quito’s is a good choice in quaint Bristol.

Now I know why the locals go here. The place is small and laid back. There is ample parking as this is on the bay and Independence Park. Most friendly staff there is indoor and outdoor dining but September chill has set in so I chose to dine indoors early evening. The bar area is not very big so a walk on the water waiting for dinner is a better option. There are a variety of apps and seafood dinners. There were 4 versions of chowder Manhattan, White,Seafood Stew and clear which I understand is the RI version. What I did opt for was the seafood stew which was chock full of swordfish,calamari.lobster bits,shrimp etc and is a meal in itself for under $7.00 and well worth it. I did order the clams casino which were ok not terrific as I like a more crispy style. You have to pay $2.00 extra for 2 small rolls which I think is odd other meals are $15 to mid $20 range. All in all glad I tried this place and would go back for that stew anytime. Bristol is a charming town with many local places to eat.

One of the best stuffies I've had, with firm (not wet) cornbread stuffing and good spices. Very good and fresh-tasting clear chowder with excellent potato flavor. The seafood platter had light batter that wasn't greasy. Although the fish didn't stand out, the whole-belly clams and shrimp were good -- but the scallops were fantastic!

Wonderful seafood, has open air seating next to the water. Service was fast. There is always a line to wait for a table but it is well worth the wait. I had the seafood casserole-took a bit longer as it had to bake, but OMG was it good!
