“Beautiful Restaurant and good food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

Behind the gates of Cotacachi is a little paradise with beautifully landscaped gardens, peacocks, hummingbirds and lush plants.
Sitting in a glass gazebo we over looked the gardens and the peacocks fanning their feathers.
We had an appetizer served to us in a wooden music box set on a white linen table cloth and the presentation of the food was very nice. Covered dishes, great service...it was quite a treat!
And the chocolate dessert was delicious.
We then received a tour of the property where we visited the spa with many options of massage...chocolate sounded interesting...a pool and cozy rooms. Next time in town I will indulge in a Spa Day.

“Center of Excellence in Fine Dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

Who could imagine t at in the heart of little Cotachachi there
would be such a wonderful 5 star restaurant? This was our second
visit and we were not disappointed. The prices are very reasonable
As compared to Dallas, Texas. A 4 course dinner for $39 plus
The beautiful botanical gardens with peacocks roaming. Exception service and wonderful dining. A trip to Cotachachi must include La Mirage! The only thing I was disappointed in was that we did not have the little fish "Peter " in his little bowl as our dinner companion. However we made reservations at the last minute and the were very busy!

“Lavender Ice Cream!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Actually, the lavender ice cream is the only thing I've really eaten here, but it's so amazing I've been here 3 times just for that! It's really expensive, so I only go there when I'm impressing guests with the fact that we have a 5-star hotel in the middle of Cotacachi, but I always really enjoy it when I do go. If you are going to be here anyway for the hotel or the spa services, you can't miss ordering this dessert!

“magical meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Beautifully presented food with little extras like the plantain appetizer in a music box and the little sorbet between courses. Shrimp and local crab quinoa timbale and shrimp/crab ravioli appetizers were delicious. Filet mignon was tender and sea bass was moist. Service was pleasant and the surroundings are delightful. Crystal chandeliers, ornate furniture, flowering orchids, roses, peacocks and beautiful grounds. Pleasant and helpful staff.

“Perfection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Don't miss La Mirage for a meal if you are in the vicinity of Cotacachi. The food, atmosphere and service are all impeccable. The menu is sophisticated and the chef (who came out to see if we enjoyed our meal) is highly skilled. The decor is almost decadent but it works. The synchronized service is amazing, bordering on theater. Be sure to see the gardens.
