El Mirador is a wonderful restaurant with a diverse menu. The owner is also the host and server and speaks excellent English. The restaurant also has a magnificent view of the Rio Blanco and have feeders that bring in birds.

“A 20 minute side trop from Mindo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2012

Mirador Rio Banco Hostal Restaurante is worth the trip from Mindo for a good lunch and wonderful view of the Rio Blanco. Located on the main street in Los Bancos, the restaurant has gardens with birds that come and visit, and can be seen through the floor to ceiling glass walls. The view of the river from atop the overlook at the restaurant is magnificent. The menu is varied, and all guests are tended to by the bilingual owner.
