We had a really nice steak dish and farmers salad here. The staff were friendly and the service was good. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

We ate at Swiss Bistro twice on our trip, (it was recommended by Casa Verde where we were staying) and had great meals. The salads were by far the best we ate during our 6 weeks in Ecuador. The staff was friendly and we loved the rooftop patio!

I went to the Swiss Bistro twice with friends, both times for their desserts. One night we shared a chocolate fondue. The other time we each had our own desserts: caramelized pear with ice cream, hot chocolate with creme, and a chocolate mousse. All excellent.

We had nice dinner. Food was ok. Not a fancy place. Its a bit outdated. The ambiance could be help by some improvements. Good choice just a bit of improvements need it.

The menue is in four languages and there are some tipical Swiss specialities on it. We enjoyed some pasta, as well as capuns and steak - all was well cooked, a little more seasoning we would have enjoyed, but for Ecuador a very good quality. It is for Banos a little a pricier place, but nice and clean.

Good Swiss food in Banos. I visited with my partner and 5 friends 4 of whom were Swiss. The food and service was good, all the Swiss were impressed with the food and thought it was like home.

The name implies a European flair- and it really does have it. We arrived in mid afternoon for a snack since we missed lunch travelling. We ended up staying almost 2 hours- like in Europe.
