La Mirage is a Hotel, spa, and fine dining experience. It never disappoints and the food is the best I've ever eaten anywhere. The service and garden atmosphere make you feel as though you are royalty for a time. Don't miss this experience if you travel to Cotacahi

I have eaten here on several occasions, with many different friends, and nobody has ever been disappointed. The setting (beautiful grounds with peacocks), the ambience, the service, the food - all exceptional. They now offer a fixed menu for $29.50, which a extremely good value for money. I have also stayed here one Christmas, and it was phenomenal. Not cheap,... More

This spa is a very unique spot - for services, special meals or just having a drink at the bar - it is a very special spa and I will go back anytime I am in town.

La Mirage is a gorgeous, exclusive property in a old-world formal setting. Formal, but not uptight - Ecuador's people are too nice to ever be uppity. The dining room is lovely! Great service, obvious that the staff, traditional indigenous people, had been trained in formal service. Amuse bouche, intermezzo were offered, appropriate cutlery, etc. Continental dining, not traditional Ecuadorian. Most... More

We had started our trip in Quito, traveled to the Galapagos, and returned to Quite for a few days before our departure for home. We had a day trip to Otavalos and Cotacachi that was just wonderful and this restaurant provided the best meal we had the entire trip! Just a hidden gem in a wonderful setting. The decor is... More

The spa services are wonderful (quality and price). The services are nice and staff is always so kind. Let me share something about decoration, its style is antique with a lot sculptures, antique furnitures, looks like “haciendas”. Please keep this in mind, if you are minimalist, maybe this environment are overload.

This was an unexpected pleasure. The staff is top notch, the food first rate, the facility, outstanding. We enjoyed the peacock shows at the window of the dining area. And a stroll in the garden after the meal is a must do.

La Mirage offers some of the best fine dining in Ecuador, and whilst you are in Cotacachi go and treat yourself to some great leather goods.

Cotacachi has several pleasant small restaurants, but NOTHING like La Mirage. While it may SEEM expensive compared to other local restaurants, it is worth every penny. The ambience, the service, and the food (not to mention wine) that you CANNOT get anywhere else is top value. Tip: go hungry. Go early and have a cocktail in the fabulous lounge... or... More
