This restaurant offers one of the best gastronomic experiences in the city of Otavalo, it is a place with a very nice and clean environment, the taste of the food is very delicious, it has excellent customer service in my opinion I would recommend this...place to all people. Since it is a very beautiful place and if they come to visit it they will have a great experience because in addition to being located in the center of the city, it has a view that allows you to see the colorful houses that surround them.More

We went here on a Monday night at the recommendation of our guide, which may be why it was completely dead. Of the entire drink list, the staff member informed us they only had 2 of the 6 or so beers. The food was just...so so for all 4 in our party. I'd skip this one and go somewhere else.More

Although a bit on the expensive side, the food and drinks were good. The live music was excellent. Recommended.

The food here is good. My group got pasta dishes, salad, seafood and everyone stated they liked their meal. We were all happy with our beer choices too. I went in a group of 8. The wait staff was patient with out slow Spanish and...they even had an English menu for the non-Spanish speakers (although we were told it was slightly out of date, but we appreciated that it existed).More

We had a lovely meal on our weekend visit. The staff was friendly and had English menu available. Food had great variety for every taste...traditional fare, sandwiches, pasta etc. There was live Ecuadorian music , featuring pan flute and other indigenous instruments. It greatly added...to our enjoyment of our meal. The location is only about two blocks from the Plaza de Ponchos too. Enjoy!More

This is a place in central Otavalo, just one half block off Sucre or Bolivar to get a snack, sandwich, or dessert and coffee. The cafe on the top floor also had a deck up some stairs that has a view over the city, and...to Mojando on the south. It is a great place to take a break from shopping at the market.More

We came here for dinner both Fri and Sat nights while in Otavalo. It was very pleasant especially with live music both nights. We had the trucha which was yummy and nice chicken dishes the second night - all very tasty. Everything is a little...bit on the expensive side for Otavalo.More

We were 2 and we took a Nachos plate 7dollars the nachos were not crispy like feeling old, the guacamole was okay and the spicy saune very simple. That was disappointing. But then we took the Cameron al alijo because of the latest review and...its true there were nice. I wouldn't say the best in my life but it was good. I still found them a bit expensive tho (14$).More

Friends of ours told us about this place. The wife said she had a shrimp dish, couldn't remember the name, but said it was the best meal she'd ever eaten. With that kind of recommendation we were eager to go. We visited S.I.S.A. with out...of town guests. I ordered the Camaron al Ajillo (Shrimp in a garlic sauce) and oh my, it was excellent. My husband had the grilled trout, but I do think the shrimp was tastier. We finished with a slice of caramel cake and cafe con leche. Excellent all around. We were there on a Saturday night and they had live music (starting at 7:30 PM). A duo playing Spanish guitar. One of the musicians also played a pan flute. The entire evening was wonderful. Just loved it! We'll head back for our anniversary in a couple of weeks.More
