I ate here 3 times while I was in Vilcabamba and it was good every time. It was the first time I had mole pablano and I loved it. They cook everything fresh to order. The margaritas are a bit pricey but also very good.

El Colibri is a wonderful new little restaurant that serves excellent Mexican food. Their recipes are authentic and well prepared. My favorite dish was the enchilada plate right after the best tortilla soup I've ever tasted. Enjoy!
