If you miss this while in Cotacachi, you have missed the BEST!

Cotacachi has several pleasant small restaurants, but NOTHING like La Mirage. While it may SEEM expensive compared to other local restaurants, it is worth every penny. The ambience, the service, and the food (not to mention wine) that you CANNOT get anywhere else is top value. Tip: go hungry. Go... read more

It is amazing to have such a beautiful place to stay and eat in a little town like Cotacachi. While it has lost some of its shine over the years, it is still well worth a visit, whether it is for Sunday brunch, a night away, or full spa treatments. The dining room is beautiful, whether you go on a... More

We were pleasantly surprised with the quality of this dining experience. Our group of four had probably the best table - looking out onto the garden. We shared our dining experience with jose- a gold fish in a clear fishbowl - the novel centrepiece on our table. An appetiser was offered - served in a music box! We each opened... More

Quite possibly one of the finest restaurants in all of Ecuador. Attentive service and flawless surroundings make your dining experience here one to remember for years to come. Extremely reasonably priced menu compared with comparable establishments anywhere in the US.

Amazing ambiance and delicious food. Lush gardens with vegetation from around the world. Peacocks roaming freely. Crystal chandeliers and beautiful art and sculptures. Part of a spa. Appetizer is served in a music box! Great experience. High-end dining.

The food here is exceptional! Lunch has a large menu selection and I would recommend the local Ecuadorian dishes, especially the soups. The presentation and service is five star, professional but not pretentious. Very friendly staff and obviously very talented chefs in the kitchen. The surprises (amouse bouche) are exquisite as are the main courses and desserts. Exceptional use of... More

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!
