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

"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

Was taken here with some friends for my birthday for dinner. We all had something different, but everyone's meal was super! A fairly varied menu and the flavor was better than the average Ecuadorian fare. When we went to pay, because it was my birthday, I was given one of my margarita's on the house! That was a first for... More
