“Fantastic Mexican Food!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

The woman who owns (?) the restaurant/hotel is from Guadalajara and knows how to prepare excellent Mexican cuisine. The food was so good we went back two days in a row, as we love good Mexican food which is difficult to find in Ecuador!
The fajitas, burritos and mole sauce were wonderful! Eating in the big garden area was an afternoon delight! Highly recommend this restaurant. It also has a hotel but we did not stay there, so can offer no feedback on that experience.

Found this off the beaten path restaurant by accident and liked both the Garden setting and the food.

“Really good mole”
Reviewed January 9, 2012

Had lunch there and ordered the vegetarian enchilada with mole, it was superb. The setting is beautiful too. Prices are a little higher than other places in Vilcabamba but so worth it.
