We asked our guides for a place for authentic Ecuadorian food and both said Achiote. Very good food and friendly service. English is spoken. We had goat and a coconut shrimp dish. Both were delicious. Definitely recommend this place. 3 people with wine $100.

Authentic Ecuadorian food catering to tourist whims. Clean and great location near Plaza Foch and my hotel (Sebastian). Each meal they bring a starter, which was a treat to try something new. Tried a fish dish and soup. Both delicious. Wines by the glass.

All this in an intimate atmosphere, accompanied by good music and bilingual attention; in one of the most emblematic neighborhoods of Quito, La Mariscal.
