The food here was not outstanding by any means and the advertised huge selection of coffee and tea was a joke. Cafe con leche, cafe con rum, cafe con vodka, etc. are not different varieties! I had expected to try various types of coffee and this was not the case. The view was impressive, however, sadly the service, drinks, and... More

The variety in each cup of coffe in Café del Cielo is the state of being different one from each other; not only with milk or rum, but, for giving a few examples, with natural mint from our organic gardens in the “Moka Menta”, with fresh citric orange in the “Moka Naranja”, with Ecuadorian bananas and coffee liquour in the...

The view of Banos is stunning both during the day and night. The food is good and not too pricey. The service was good. My boyfriend was obsessed with the banana milkshake.

Was at this place last night for a light meal and though I must say that the views are great (went at night) the food and a mojito were subpart. The chicken curry crêpe was not as tasty as expected and rather salty with a runny sauce and the mojito lacked quite a few of the characteristics of what I... More

The restaurant is really charming because of the incredible view and a romantic environment. The dishes are good, however the menu doesn't have a lot of options and the dishes are really common, not sophisticated dishes as the price and the place suggest.

We stopped in here for lunch while on a bicycle ride from Casa del Arbol. Views were great and restaurant was nice. The service was extremely poor and it was not due to lack of help.
