Achiote - Restaurant Quito - Ecuador

Achiote specializes in preparing exquisite Ecuadorian plates that you simply cannot miss out on if you're staying in Quito. Located on the fringe of the Mariscal's bustling nightlife (but still within it's borders) the restaurant presents a haven of sorts for those interested enjoying a night out, minus the rowdiness that's typical of that neighborhood at night. Serving a range of typical dishes all the way from seafood to delicacies of the highlands (including guinea pig!), Achiote provides your palette with an abundance of choices. The appetizers come in small or large portions so you can easily sample a number of items on the menu. The services on top of it all is delightful, with a near perfect command of English and an extensive knowledge regarding everything that's on the menu. Plates per person, plus drinks, usually comes out to around $25.
