Masaya Bistro

Top choice Bistro

in Quito

This large, inviting space with bare brick pillars and long wooden tables spills onto the peaceful enclosed garden of the affiliated Masaya Hostel. Ecuadorian-international food is served up in this casual, relaxed setting, where beef in chimichurri sauce, quinoa croquettes, Ecuadorian-style ceviche, burgers, wraps and pastas are all possibilities.

Slake your thirst with good coffee, European and South American wines and cocktails such as the Amazonas gin, made with naranjillas, green lemons and passion fruit. Kids will love the garden with its hammocks and beanbags.
