Nice and Convenient Place to Eat While Shopping for Leather

Cotacachi is the place to buy leather goods in northern Ecuador. It's about two hours drive from Quito with good highway and scenic views (Cayambe volcano). One can buy a nice leather jacket for under $100 particularly if you go early I the week. Nice restaurant on the main leather shopping street... read more

Had the typical lunch. but the soup was bland, the beef was very fatty and was more grizzle than meat. Wouldn't try again myself!

D'Anitas's is right on the main street in town - convenient to everything. Their menu is varied and the food is very good. It has a lovely garden-like atmosphere.

We stopped there for lunch Our guide suggested the place. The lunch menu was great. A 4 course meal for $7. The food was well prepared and the service prompt. The staff were very friendly. This is a great place to eat if you are in the area.

I had a lunch that was spectacular! The Menu del Dia was inexpensive, and better than many meals I've had in the U.S. that were 3 times the cost! Delicious soup, followed by the main course of beef stroganoff over rice, with a lovely fresh salad and steamed vegetable, followed by a mini-banana split dessert! Really, truly yummy!

I had the almuerzo, the special lunch. It was substatial and very good, although a bit pricey for Cotacachi. That is probably because it is on leather street. I hear they have good breakfasts as well.

We went to this place early for breakfast two times and loved the food both times. Each time we had the place to ourselves, perhaps because we arrived right at 8. The second time the staff was having their breakfast and we asked for some ice (hielo), and we overheard a member of the staff, a teenage girl, say "maricons,"... More

We asked if they made empanadas ...the waiter said "yes, cheese"., we said we were looking for a place that had beef or chicken. He said "it will take an extra 5 min." And so he made them fresh for us... 2 for $1.00. We assumed they were small so we ordered 2 beef and 2 chicken each....he laughed.. They... More

I started out eating breakfast here every morning, but quit when the matronly owner turned out to be an overbearing idiot. I quit eating there after that, even though they served a good breakfast for an excellent price.
