My boyfriend and I live frugally in Ecuador, and we splurged on this place to celebrate our anniversary. We had the cheese fondue and the chocolate as well. Both were quite good, with plenty of food for two people. I have had fondue in America with more food, but contextualized in Ecuador, I was happy with my experience. The cow... More

The rosti dishes are good but the French onion soup was the worst I have ever had. The service is friendly and it's good place to eat in baños. I've been many times.

The place is nice, the staff tries hard to cater you, although they can't deliver good service, the onion soup terrible and the beef stroganoff really a disaster with un chewable meet. The other dishes ok and definitely the rosti dishes the only good stuff they have. The swiss owner a complete idiot who charges you for the dishes you... More

All the food we had was delicious (trout, tuna, cordon bleu and pasta) but the best of our visit was the outstanding service provided by all the personnel. You can go up to the patio if your pet is traveling with you. In my case, the waiter even brought water for my dog. Highly recommended!!

Very good food, good service. Could have been a little faster, but the excellent food compensated it. Try the Rösti, speciality of the house.

Tired of exotic-Ecuadorian food? Looking for familiar European fare? For an outstanding meal head for the Swiss Bistro, and once there go upstairs, you will find...Ja! Go and look yourself, you will thank me.
