It's better than the usual basic restaurant which is ubiquitous in Ecuador. It has style and cleanliness. The food is nice (but it is Ecuadorian). The service is good. The price is a little higher. Locals eat here also, which is a good indicator. Car...More

We live in Cotacachi and usually take visitors here for a traditional well prepared meal. There is a choice of menu of the day or extensive menu choices including fish, beef, pork and chicken dishes. The food portions are very ample.

Food was excellent, staff was great. It was a very good experience. I was pleasantly surprised and will go there again. A little pricey.

The place it's really nice, but the food is poorly done. If your are thinking of a good steak or filet mignon, just forget it. If you want just simple fries go for it and don't try the hamburguer its tasteless.
