Great views perched up on a crater rim. Excellent food and a great introduction to Ecuadorian cuisine.

Beautiful restaurant owned by artists that is located near the equator. The dining area overlooks a caldera in the Andes. The food presentation was superb and the food was creative. I had an excellent sea bass.

We were a small group and divided to 3 tables. It was warm in our section due to all the windows for the view. We had to ask to get the fans on and had to ask 3 times for water to be poured. The pork was very tough, opt for chicken. I would pass on this place had I to do it again.

We stayed at the hotel and so had 2 dinners and breakfasts at the restaurant. The vegetarian options are limited, but good. The breakfast has warm homemade bread...yummy!

They view was fantastic - when the clouds lift. But, our dinning experience was mediocur. Our first night we were the only ones their at the lodge and they seemed to open just for us so, maybe that was why. The building, grounds and art work were worth the trip alone but, we had read so much about the menu were where suprised.
