Nothing better than a good and delicious typical meal to guarantee the success of your visit and outing. It is an obligatory stop, not only for the convenience of its location next to the road and a few meters from my beautiful "White City" Ibarra,...but also for the delicious and varied traditional food that is offered. If you are a lover of fingerlings (pork) then here you will find and taste the most delicious and above all with certified meats that will provoke an irrepressible desire for a snack on your palate! But, of course, if you manage to finish the giant or familiar font that is really giant; If you are a vegetarian, the options are varied (cooked corn or corn, mote, cooked potatoes, fresh avocados from the sector, cooked beans, among other options). There is a variety of drinks, if you want there is also chicha which is a very delicious drink, I love it, it is always good to try something different ... The place is very clean, spacious and has children's games that I am sure will be the delight of your children and very safe just in case. Finally, I want to recommend this place, it is very good, the price is affordable and the food is fresh, delicious, nutritious and I guarantee that you will be satisfied! ...More

Stopped here as I have heard so much about fritadas in Ecuador and this was the place to go if I wanted to try them. There were four of us in the party and we decided to get a platter so we could try different...things. First off - I don't like spending good money at a restaurant and not being served. It is very much like a cheap fast food restaurant in america where you have to go through a line and order the food off a menu hanging on the wall and then you're 'on your own' from that point on. We sat outside at a table which was nice as the weather was good to do so. There was a pretty good variety of food on the platter to try and while it wasn't bad there was certainly nothing outstanding. The fritada was nothing but very bland chunks of way overcooked pork that were really tough to chew and swallow. I would much rather buy a two dollar plate of food from a stall in the Otavalo market or Saturday animal market than eat here again!More

If you want a traditional meal from Ibarra, this is a good option. However, not the nicest place you can find and it could be extremely crowded during lunch time. Prices are also a bit higher than average. This restaurant used to be the best...option some time ago, now I truly believe there are better options to find in this area.More
