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.

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

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 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

One for carnivores and one for vegetarians and what was particularly great is that we could have them for one person as often that is not the case in restaurants. I can honestly say that this is one of the best meals I’ve ever had. I was also glad to be able to tell the chef patron Wilson in person what we thought. The vegetarian taster menu was only two weeks old and my daughter thought it was superb. To be honest I tasted all her dishes as well so I guess I had about a 17 course meal! Thank you again for a brilliant brilliant experience.
