We ate here after our trip to the jungle and we were disappointed. Nice quaint restaurant, food was delicious, little outdoor area for the smokers. Had the french onion soup as a starter and was wonderful. Hubby had the beef dish and I had Zurich chicken, both were delicious. Definitely recommend.

We ate here twice during our 6 nights in Baños. At first, looking at the menu, we wondered if it would be worth the price, as it is more expensive than anywhere else we ate. The food was delicious! Definitely worth the price. We tried the tillapia, the capuns and the french onion soup. All were outstanding. The outdoor dining... More

As two Swiss, we simply had to try out this restaurant. First, we were a bit sceptical, because we made some bad experiences with "Swiss" places in South America. Anyway, the restaurant is decorated with a lot of things that represent Switzerland. When we looked at the menu we were surprised about the variety of different meals. We chose two... More

I tried to give it a new chance. This place just need more waitress and personnel to keep a good standars of service. I don't understand why they took such a long time for food to be prepared almost 50 minutes plus not all of the options were available. They need to improve their service. You can not even enjoy...

The choices we had were good, eventhoug since our visit was out of the high season they had only 50% if their menu! No fondue for example in a Swiss bistro ? I would recommend to have a high season menu and a off season menu! The service was very warm! And cordial! Food tasted ok! Would come back! Installation... More

I was actually really looking forward to eating here since the reviews online were so good. Unfortunately, our experience was anything but. It took over an hour to get our food which was not even worth eating. The food is over priced especially considering there are a ton of great well priced restaurants in Banos. But above all else, the... More

We had dinner here on Christmas day and it was lovely. The food was very fresh and served piping hot which was very nice (and rare in Ecuador). It was delicious and reasonably priced. The service was slow but the food was great and there was lots of choice. Would definitely visit again.

We sat outside upstairs and the atmosphere was great. I had the chicken cordon blue and it was exceptional. Would have like to have seen the fondue as an appetizer. They were out of meat when we ate there so limited the choices a bit, nice restaurant with great atmosphere,
