Really delicious Vietnamese food. The cuisine really tastes authentic and is nothing like the "chifa"--the local term for chinese food--restaurants that you'll find nearby. Try the pho or the summer rolls--and don't forget to order the peanut dipping sauce. Head here when you just can't stand to eat another plate of rice, chicken and shredded lettuce.Popular withBackpackersLocalFoodies

This is hands down my favorite restaurant in the city. Excellent food, wonderful rustic décor and usually good service. I'm kind of a 'spice' freak and this is one place I can get my 'fix'.Popular withLuxuryFoodiesLocal

The only and possibly best Japanese restaurant in town. Red offers happy hour drinks specials as well as creatively presented Japanese dishes. Their main offers are sashimi/rolls (although limited by "western" standards) and they also offer local cuisine as in ceviches. We were happy with our selections, our ocean front view,and the service.
Dining in Ecuador doesn't get any greener than this. The Kallari Cafe is owned and operated by a cooperative of indigenous Kichwa people from the Amazon, practicing sustainable agriculture and low-impact marketing of chocolate products and crafts. The cafe is a delightful place to sample traditional cuisine or stock up on mouth-watering chocolate treats, made from local, organic cacao beans ...Popular withGreenLocalFoodies

A stroll through La Ronda - a small but very representative neighborhood of Colonial Quito - is a good way to get a feeling of traditional life in Quito. It’s a romantic cobbled street just off the Plaza Santo Domingo (or it can be reached via Garcia Moreno by the City Museum). Within only two blocks of stucco buildings with ...

La Ronda in Quito is a beautiful street in the Historic Center of the city. It is said to be one of the oldest streets in Quito and has been nicely restored. It sits close to the base of the famous "Panecillo" hill which is crowned with a winged virgin statue.
