Sunset happy hour every day from 6-7pm with reduced price beer, cocktails & wine is a must do!

I turned up at the Lazy Cat for lunch, had a few drinks and before I knew it, I was having dinner. The food was great (try the quesadillas or burgers) and the atmosphere is very relaxed. The restaurant has an inside area and a terrace which is up on a hill over the river below - it's a great setting. The beers are cold and unusually for minca - this place has wifi!

Although called the Lazy Cat - it's the adorable resident dogs that stole the show for me!

Thanks to all the staff for really looking after us in Minca.

The Lazy Cat has it all.. As you walk in you get a very great welcome by the owners and they make you feel at home. They have put very hard work in this place and it shows. The food is the best in town and at a very good price, very cold drinks. The balcony at the back is the best place to sit down and eat with the sound of the river below. Free wifi....Just go and see.....ask for the BURGER....MMMMMMM.......

Great food, friendly service, great value. The staff speaks English and Spanish. I came here every day while I was in Minca to enjoy the beautiful terrace, use the wifi, and of course eat a delicious meal. The burgers really are gourmet. Highly recommended.

Located on the main street, just opposite the church. Great range of food and drink. Very friendly staff who really want you to get the most out of your stay in Minca. English is spoken. Cool balcony above river to enjoy meals. Good value for money.

After a long trek up and down from Las Cascadas we stopped here for some lunch & refreshment. A great little find with a lovely balcony & view! Great staff that spoke English, super friendly. Nice food, varied menu & decent price.
