    I wanted to have a great meal to celebrate the start of my first true vacation and break from work since before the pandemic, so chose Zazu. The Vegetarian Experience tasting menu with wine pairing was incredible and fit exactly what I was looking for! I highly recommend for a special fine dining occasion.

    We had an amazing dinner there last night. Course after course was delicious and beautifully presented. My only regret is that we didn’t get the wine pairing. Our server, Mabel, was great. Everything was delivered in a timely manner and we never had to ask for a thing. I hope to go back many times.

    Zazu was one of the best meals we’ve ever had! My husband and I were visiting Quito from the US and were blown away by this culinary experience. Every single dish from start to finish, including drinks and dessert, were a 10/10! The staff spoke English and were incredibly friendly! If you’re visiting Quito, I couldn’t recommend this place more!

    The food is technically accomplished. The service was good for the first 30 minutes, then staff disappeared. The measure of alcoholic drinks was noticeably low.

    I read a review about Mabel before we arrived, and to my great amusement and delight, she was our server! All the accolades are true and well deserved.. we’ve eaten in three Michelin starred restaurants, and they clearly deserve a star.

    Service and food were outstanding! Fine dining dishes. The only thing, which didn’t make it a real fine dining experience was that there were a lot of guests in the restaurant, who wore sports or hiking outfit.

    Sorry to say, but it was only a try. The menue sounded exciting, but the different components did not really match together and did not support each other. Only the egg yolk was surprising and an experience. Even the wine was not as expected. Mostly from Spain. The service was nice but rushed us through the 9 dishes. A bit more time in between would have been appreciated. And even by returning dishes that did not taste, the only comment was “thank you “.

    The restaurant was closed and we had reserved months in advance! Even getting a confirmation from Open Table the day before. Very disappointed in not having notification!!We should have been notified! Our cab dropped is off and then found out it was closed, so had to get another cab! And fortunately found a fantastic restaurant called Somos…..it was absolutely fabulous!!

    Zazu is a fine-dining restaurant with very nice ambiance and friendly staff. Two of us tried the regular tasting menu and one the vegetarian tasting menu. Perhaps we were expecting too much, as the food is quite good but not a "wow". This is also what we read from other reviews. Nevertheless, we had a good meal in Quito, but it is unlikely that we will go again when we visit Quito next time

    I was hoping to have the Stone Crab appetizer and the Duck Confit entree. We were not informed that these weren't available until AFTER I tried to order them. This is unacceptable. Also, the online 5 and 7 course dinners are different from what is available at the restaurant. The food is delicious, with beautiful presentations.

    The minute that we walked in we knew we were in someplace special - it is called ambience. For a somewhat young staff we were met with smart and polished people who knew that they were doing. When I asked about 3 Pinot Noir wines the waiter brought all 3 bottles to the table and talked about the differences - nice. She had octopus appetizer and Jumbo shrimp entre. He had Biche seafood soup for starter and grilled sea bass (perfectly prepared). We would certainly return when in Quito

    Good ambience and service. Need to improve quantity of potions which are very small and do not present a value for money. Why do you serve frozen butter with bread? How is one expected to spread the butter when it is frozen?
