The selection and quality of food was great. The customer service also great- very friendly and helpful. Not necessarily a local place (it was full of tourists) but still a cool place to try local dishes.

We ate here with a group, OAT, so had only limited access to menu choices but what we had were limited to a couple of selections. What we had, namely ceviche and potato cakes, along with plantains, were very good.

Description
ACHIOTE ECUADOR-CUISINE, we are the entrepreneurship of a small Quito family that has an extensive culinary tradition, where you can not only enjoy Ecuadorian food, but also feel the warmth of a home and a country located in the heart of the Andes . The restaurant offers an unforgettable cultural experience, with an extensive menu of innovative recipes that includes vegetarian options and a diversity of flavors that challenge the palate and bring an exquisite and renewed touch to Ecuadorian cuisine. All this in an intimate atmosphere, accompanied by good music and bilingual attention; in one of the most emblematic neighborhoods of Quito, La Mariscal. The ingredients used are organic, endemic and of high quality, always subjected to a process of gourmet preparation that pays homage to a town that knows how to make the heart happy from the palate.
