Made reservations for the new years eve dinner. For 37 people and payed some upfront. Well, they turned out to have almost no staff, no ice, the food was awful and cold. It was turkey and pork with ketchup, really? Also, they had cheap champagne,...the room was super hot and the music/speaker was not working. Just terrible. After they served a few dishes more than half the group just picked up and left. We joke about the horrible situation with my family now but we will 100% not be going back there. EverMore

The food is very good. Service is excellent. Prices reasonable. The view of a small pond and garden area is very, very pretty. Overall, a very nice place for lunch or dinner.

I stayed here with my family over a weekend. The rooms were good size, beds were comfortable and the towels and sheets were clean. Owner speaks English and was very nice and helpful. The food was really good as well. However the was a wedding...reception Saturday night and the music was super loud and no one was able sleep until after 1am. The property is very cool but definitely needs work. All in all I would recommend this property for its economy but would definitely check to see if there are any events planned.More

Cedro is located in Baños, 50 meters from the Termas de la Virgen. It has a bar and offers free private parking. Some rooms have a seating area, and all have a flat-screen TV and a private bathroom with a bath or shower. El Cedro...features free WiFi throughout the property. Cedros Restaurant is one of the best places to enjoy the always delicious and unique Ecuadorian cuisine. Cedros restaurant is located between Montalvo streeth and Pasaje Velasco Ibarra streeth. Cedro restaurant enjoys a warm environment and the Cedro’s cuisine is considered among the best in Baños. The name Cedro in English “Cedar” came natural because the restaurant structure is built around a cedar tree, very interesting to say the less. The place looks modest but very well arranged and clean, it does not try to impress with the decoration, in the flavors it is where it shines, the attention of the owner is impeccable, the menu is not very vast, but it is precise in what it offers and excellent Taste, without doubt one of the best options to eat in Baños. The Cedro restaurant offers catering service and a wide menu for daily visitors looking for a new culinary experience.More

After reading the reviews of this restaurant we decided to check it out for ourselves and unfortunately we cannot share the general opinion that this would be an excellent restaurant. We were given a table with a table cloth which should not have been on...the table, bearing the stains of previous guests. The cocktails were not very good. I got a tequila sunrise with tequila and an undefined yellow substance, no sunrise for me! We ordered trout and the filet mignon. They were ok without being excellent. The filet mignon was more than medium rare and I liked the vegetables and the plantain that came with it. We 'chose' the only desert available, queso de pina.This was ok give that the Ecuadorians do not stand out as great desert makers ... In conclusion: there are many restaurants in Bano which match Cedro easily, especially given the bas price/quality ratio. Too expensive for what we got. We sat upstairs with many open windows, nice in a hot summer but not very nice on a relatively cold september evening.More

El Cedro is a quiet restaurant away from the more noisy streets of Banos. Lots of locals eat here, and with good reason. The food is good, and well prepared.

not bad, but not great. overall, our experience was just average. the atmosphere was nice, the food and wine selection was decent, the prices were fair, and the service was okay - not super friendly, but attentive and accurate. bottom line, there was nothing remarkable...about the visit. based on a great many stellar reviews on TripAdvisor, i expected a little more (though i was pleased that our experience was nothing like those described in the bad reviews). the location is convenient and the tree is special, so if you are around the area and hungry, i wouldn't say you shouldn't stop by, but i wouldn't tell anyone to go out of their way to go.More

I've eaten here twice and absolutely the quality of the food, the variety, and the level of service. The owners are warm, friendly, and accommodating, and have a clear passion for the restaurant industry. With so many foreign owned businesses in Baños, it's good to...support a place with Ecuadorian owners! I'm vegetarian, and they were very accommodating in terms of making sure I had lots of choice. Great for lunch or dinner. Thanks El Cedro!More
