Very tasty, satisfying and healthy dinner for very reasonable price! Definitely recommend this place for other travellers. Had 2 starters, 2 mains (one of which was a v nice steak), a beer, water & cup of tea & expresso for $24. Will be going back before we leave for sure! :)

We had dinner at Cafe Good twice and both times the food was good, service was quick and the prices reasonable. There is a fair variety of choices on the menu as well. We'd eat there again.

Nice place . A little more pretentious than it lives up to. Decorations, service and hygiene are OK but not excellent. Food looks very good though. Prices are in accordance so it is a good deal all in all

Ate dinner here two nights ago (I had a hindu curry and my girlfriend had satay) and really enjoyed it, the staff were really friendly and it was a nice family based environment. Came back for breakfast today and had an equally nice experience. It's pretty good value too I think. Would definitely recommend :)

This restaurant was strangely empty on a Saturday night despite its good reviews and fantastic food. It was so far the best meal my family and I have had in Banos. It seems to be a family run restaurant, and the woman there was so nice and welcoming, the red wine was delicious, the service was great, and the food... More

Cafe good is very centrally located and offers a good selection of breakfast options. We visited a few times and I had pancakes both times. They were delicious and not badly priced, $4 for two pancakes, with a bowel of fruit and yoghurt. The chocolate, pancake is particularly good. In general the portion sizes could be bigger. Good wifi.

Have you ever passed by a restaurant, where you looked into through the window and wished to be inside? Have you ever been to a restaurant, where you were handled like a family member or a good friend? If not, try this one! Amazing staff, so lovely and the food is delicious! I wouldn't say, they have huge portions, but... More

We visited Banos and enjoyed multiple visits to this restaurant. We had 9 people (2 families). The meals, coffee, etc. were great, and the staff very accommodating.

This is one of the unique place in town open at 7:30 am to have a decent breakfast, good quality coffee, fresh bread and the service is very friendly.

Do yourself a favour and come here!!! Mains are around $8USD and dessert is $2USD. The portions are huge and they serve brown rice which is such a welcomed change. Everything was delicious and we will definitely be back.
