Lots to choose from on the menu. Right on the main drag in Otovalo, super convenient if you are at the market anyway. Clean restrooms, nice staff, delicious food, AND it's not expensive! Charming live indinenous music as well.

We loved the restaurant's ambience. Local flavor. Our waitress was wonderful. Food was outstanding. We ate there 4 times, which was every day. A little tip goes a long way.

My friend and I stopped in for a late lunch. The daily special was over so we ordered form the a-la-cart menu. I had the Shrimp Ceviche and my friend had the Grilled Trout. Both were delivered fairly quickly by friendly staff. My Ceviche was excellent, and my friend let me taste her trout. It was very good. My friend... More

I've enjoyed this place many times and never had a bad meal. They serve good, Ecuadorian comfort food at a reasonable price.

We had lunch at Mi Otavalo on Saturday the busy Market day ... A little more expensive for the set menu than you will find in Quito but of course still very good value.. For me I was totally captivated by the fantastic local music they had playing - Andean Pipes ... Really excellent ... They had a CD for... More

Mi Otavalito fulfills a need for those looking for good moderately priced Ecuadorian food in a pleasant environment. The menu offers all the major meat groups as well as seafood and pasta. There was a large group when we got there and they all ordered pasta which looked very good. However, when we ordered the same, they had run out.... More

On our trip to Otavalo for shopping, the guide showed us the location of this restaurant and highly recommended it to us as to having good food and reasonable prices. One aspect that the guide pointed out to us was that this restaurant made it a point to wash the vegetables very well, something that most restaurants in the area... More

We were in Otavalo for a few days, for the Market, the Condor Park and the train/bus trip "Ruta de la Libertad" and wanted to try some authentic local food. "Mi Otavalito" was recommended by many reviewers on Trip Advisor and the young man at the tourist office at the corner of La Plaza de Los Ponchos also rated it... More
