If you are spending sometime near Quito's financial and commercial area, don't miss Psari, a small but great restaurant.

The restaurant features mostly seafood dishes but it also offers meat and chicken alternatives.

We were 6 people, ordered 5 appetizers, 6 main dishes and a bottle of wine and the check was less than $140. One of the best deals in Quito considering the ambiance and the quality of their food. Extremely highly recommended!

Two couples traveling together, we first dined at Psari a couple days ago and returned tonight. We'll be back at least one of our two remaining days in the city.

I had Ying Yang salmon tonight with sautéed veggies. The seared fish was perfectly prepared complete with a light sesame-seed crust. Husband raved about his osso busco. Our companions were equally impressed with their dinners, especially French onion soup and carpaccio starters.
Prices are reasonable, including $5 for a glass of decent Malbec. Dinner for two with 3 glasses of wine and shared dessert was around $55. Ambiance is quiet and classy.

Great spot just a block from the Parque Carolina.

We stayed at an Airbnb just around the corner from Psari and decided to give it a try. What a happy surprise! The four of us have now eaten there twice and have loved every single item we've ordered, including the French onion soup, portobello stuffed with shrimp, carpaccio, Chateaubriand, coconut shrimp, tuna tartare, yin/yang tuna and ossobuco. The restaurant is elegant, quiet and romantic and the prices seemed very reasonable for such excellent food. Every dish was beautifully plated. Both meals cost us about $25 per person, including appetizers, wine and entrees. We all left very satisfied and definitely plan to return at least once more.
