The historic street is fun to walk through because of the cute shops and restaurants that feature Ecuadorian food. Get the empanadas de morocho.

While this is a nice area when we were walking around Quito there was not much open in the middle of the day, in the middle of the week. We did find a nice restaurant for lunch but there were not many choices that were open. There were just a few artisanal shops open so we were successful buying some... More

There is so much great stuff here: it's one of the oldest streets in Quito and still has a historical vibe. The food and drinks are great--definitely get an empanada de viento and canelazo. There are plenty of museums and churches to visit. BUT make sure to be aware of your surroundings in the centro historico--pick-pocketers know that this is... More

Nice street with lots of places to eat and speciality shops. Mainly set up for tourists and during the day there are not that many people around. Big presence of tourist police. Went with a local who commented that it was very popular and busy in the evenings but more expensive here. Nice to go have a look around though.

They offer typical Ecuadorian food there and you can get good and cheap 'canelazo' there. The music is mostly traditional (Salsa) and people are open minded and friendly.

La Ronda is to be visited only at night when it wakes up and comes alive. I ate some local food and danced with a local band playing live on the streets. There's something happening in almost every corner and eateries along this road

We were there on a Sunday morning and Ronda was almost deserted. The artisan workshops were open but no-one working. However, the everpresent Tourist Police were still very visible.

This interesting little walkway is a pedestrian only cobbled street featuring bars, restaurants and local arts and crafts! It is well lit at night and is on the border of the Old Town of Quito. Well worth the walk to peek into the many doors.

Is a must do in Quito, but please don´t plan to eat there! There are a lot of places to eat there, just don´t. Not gut!

A quirky little street with lots of hand made products from honey to children's toys. A cute little ice cream parlour and an artisan chocolate cafe which shows you how it's all made. Definitely worth a visit.
