A place to visit by night, interesting small restaurants, with nice lighting. Clean and appears a safe place to stroll around. Good source for traditional Ecuadorian cuisine.

La Ronda is a street near Old Quito that has a lot of restaurants and some bars. It's a good place to go when you're looking for good food and a nice atmosphere. Not a must-see place if you're in Quito a short while but worth it if you'll be there more than a week.

This street is a historic piece of the colonial past of Quito. It is a tourist attraction so it's lined with shops, restaurants and bars and informational panels that tell some of the street's story. My Ecuadorian grandfather grew up in this street, so it's definitely authentic history, albeit more aimed at tourists (in menu and prices) than anything else.... More

Nice area and totally pedestrianised at weekends so families come out and head to the main square for socialising and eating ice cream. Plenty of old streets to roam and felt safe despite reading about pick pockets on line etc. (Still keep your personal items hidden though in crowded areas). A must do when visiting Quito.

If you go to the Old Town star there till sunset. At La Ronda you'll find a lot of pubs with nice music and very nice drinks.
