Achiote Ecuador Cuisine Restaurant – Quito Ecuador

On our visit to the City of Quito in Ecuador, we had the pleasure of working with Quito Turismo {Tourism} and visiting some wonderful places. One of which included a visit to …

🌺 Achiote Ecuador Cuisine Restaurant 🌺

A superb restaurant serving original recipes of Ecuadorian food with a special twist.

Achiote Ecuador Cuisine Restaurant – Location

Achiote is located in the trendy {La Mariscal District} of the city, and is presently rated
on Tripadvisor as; #17 of 1,307 Restaurants in Quito, Ecuador and for very good reason.

La Mariscal is known to be one of Quito’s more affluent districts in the city.

Here you will find international brand hotels, offices, restaurants, entertainment and more. The Plaza Foch is a very popular area with a central plaza surrounded by; cafes, bars, and restaurants.

Family Owned & Operated

Achiote Ecuador Cuisine Restaurant Chefs

This is a family owned and operated business and after dining here, it was easy to tell why they are and have been so successful over the years.

Achiote’s menu is varied and takes an original approach to Ecuadorian cuisine. They offer a touch of Latin, Fusion, Ecuadorian dishes, are vegetarian friendly, with vegan and gluten free options.

On our visit, we were delighted to meet the owners/chefs of Achiote, who presented us with a superb {5 Course Tasting Menu}. What a wonderful way to experience Ecuadorian Cuisine at its finest!
