“Amazing views and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

The view is to die for! You see the whole city of Banos, surrounded by mountains. The food was great- they served alcohol, crepes, ice cream and sandwiches. There were also 34 types of coffees to try!

You haven't absolutely experienced banos until you visit Luna Runtun. It was like a dream to be somewhere so spectacular and peaceful.

“It's all about the view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2012

After a winding climb up, you are greeted with a fantastic view of Banos. The houses look so small! You can have lunch, or coffee, with a relaxing view of the city down below. You can't see the volcano from the cafe, but the view is so great it hardly matters. Definitely worth a visit. I'd suggest a day time visit because you can see so much more, but I imagine the night time view with all the lights is pretty nice too.

“great spot with a great selection of coffess”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

this has got to be one of the best views looking over banos. this is a beautiful cafe, nicely decorated with a great selection of drinks. cakes were okay but tasted like they were from a packet, not made from scratch. coffees were great though.
