El Tigrillo with a history of almost 30 years, being the first restaurant in Mindo, previously named San Francisco, since November 11, 2008, starting to be called El Tigrillo. The pizzeria El Tigrillo is characterized by having an original Italian pizza, respecting the traditions and ingredients of that country. On the other hand, we make national food.

This restaurant is located on the main street. The first thing we noticed was the large clay oven located right in the centre of the restaurant. I read up a bit on this place and learned that El Tigrillo has a history of almost 30...More

We've been there for 2 jamon y queso sandwiches. We both got food poisoning. We only ate there, so it must be from there. Were two days sick. Don't eat there.

It's a rainy day and I randomly entered into a restaurant on the main street for lunch. This one looks good so I gave it a try. Although the pizza made in oven looks very attractive, I still prefer typical Ecuador food. I ordered a...More

Stopped by for dinner. There is a good selection of pizzas but they have lots of other options. Service was good and the pizza was delicious! Thin crispy base and no skimping on toppings!

The prices are high for a pizza. However, we shared a familiar (42cm), so the price became duable. The pizza was amazing, thin and richely decorated. We had the garlic bread as an appetizer, I would definitely recommend that!

Had a large salami pizza. The base was uncooked in parts, the salami was elusive and the rest was cheese. Relatively expensive for a pizza in Ecuador and really not very good at all. We also ordered a mixed salad which arrived when we'd finished...More
