A good steak is hard to find in Ecuador. Swiss Bistro serves it with lots of delicious vegetables. This was the best meal I had in Banos. The atmosphere was very pleasant.

It was a good lunch. We were tired after the Ruta de las cascades and we enjoyed yummy food and the chocolate fondue!

I have eaten several times in this Bistro and always had great experience. I like the most sandwiches, salads and fresh fruit juices there. Ambient is very charming and service is great ... what else can we dream on?

The outdoor terrace had a great atmosphere and was done quite well. I really enjoyed the fresh fruit cocktails and my steak and mushrooms were quite delicious! Worth the trip if you will be in Baños for a while, otherwise I recommend going some place that fits into this chill town better.

These guys do great fresh salads, the rosti were tasty and the wine was good. The service was polite and prompt and we returned a couple of times during our stay in Banos.

I must say that this is one of the best places I have ever been, the food is just so delicious, the live music and the environment make this place a "must go" in your list of restaurants, especially if you enjoy a nice glass of wine with your steak in a cold night. I said it when I was... More
