This terrace is a well-kept secret… Zazu is one of the best restaurants in Quito, but not everyone knows they have a terrace on their second floor. It’s surrounded by plants and has a roof, creating an oasis in the city. It has a laid-back approach, with sofa’s, low tables and a bar. And is a place where you can eat one of their delicious meals or just have some amazing cocktails.
You can feast upon the flavours of summer here. The menu of Zazu is always brimming with fresh flavours, truly highlighting Ecuadorian products at their best. Their vegetables are organic, their seafood is what usually gets imported, and in general, they use only the best. There are plenty of drink options also to be enjoyed at the terrace, including specially selected wines to pair with your meal (check out their amazing wine cellar on the first floor). You can’t go wrong here, but if you want my advice, get the cazuela with “sal prieta” (picture below). Trust me…
Also, they host special events in their second floor kitchen. So if your best friend is a mega foodie or are looking for something different, you can have a dinner party at Zazu and cook WITH the chef! Drink some pisco, eat amazing food and learn some of his secrets on the way 😉
