    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

    We ate here as a group on our last night in Quito. Zazu was an oasis of calm, relaxed and competent. The food was very good, the wine spot on and the service excellent.

    Met some local friends and the service and food were excellent. The prawns and octopus equivalent to Greek islands 😀 they were kind enough to communicate in English as well because of our poor Spanish

    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?

    Nice experience with lovely staff. We did the tasting menu with wine pairing. Some courses were outstanding (Amuse Bouche, Andean Grains) but some others where we found the protein wasn’t to our expectation (Seabass, Pulpo). With the exception of two wines, pairing wasn’t remarkable. However, lovely place & friendly staff. Would just do it a little differently if we went back.

    We read about this restaurant on the web and it did not disappoint. We chose the Zazu tasting menu and each course was paced incredibly well. Each dish was served in inventive ways and tasted just as great as they looked. My favorite was the deconstructed ceviche in a beautiful and flavoreful pink gelatin vinegar ..a masterpiece of flavors, so well balanced
