First time to La Mirage last week...grounds and dining room are beautiful. Food is excellent and the presentation is worthy of its 5 star reputation. Bit on the expensive side but, top notch so worth the cost. Also met the owner who took us on a tour of the resort...very nice touch. Repeat...definitely!

If you visit Ecuador, this should be one of your hotels to visit, you won't be disappointed!! This is a small piece of Europe in Cotacachi!!!... More

This secluded restaurant provides one of the most romantic atmospheres and sublime cuisine I have ever experienced. This is a must visit destination if you ever are in the close vicinity of the location. Actually well worth traveling here just for this single experience. The region provides several stunningly beautiful locations i addition to this Hotel / Spa / Restaurant!

Absolutely gorgeous restaurant in a garden setting. Even if you cannot stay in the hotel (which you should), a lunch or dinner at La Mirage is an unforgettable experience. There are many entrees to choose from and the food is excellent. They have a very good wine selection and desserts are sinfully good. Enjoy your meal while watching peacocks parading... More

Excellent high end restaurant. The service was great and made for an enjoyable Christmas dinner. There was a special for that day and we had many courses for a reasonable price. The food was wonderful and the presentation was superb. There are gardens with beautiful trees, flowers, and plants.

We booked in advance a beautiful table that overlooks the garden. The restaurant is wonderful. The service is excellent. Dishes are arranged like art work. For instance, they gave us as courtesy, a small humita (corn dish) which was placed inside a wood musical box. My wife tried the "cuy" (guinea pig type) and found it exquisite (not my type... More

The setting is charmingly classy. We overlooked a beautifully kept garden with 13 peacocks strutting around freely. The service was delightful- all local ladies dressed in traditional costume. The food was stunningly presented and superbly cooked. To start an amuse Boucher is delivered in a music box playing a tune from phantom of the opera. Inside a beautifully presented local... More
