Restaurant details
Reviewed February 14, 2013

We have had several meals in January and February 2013. It is a family restaurant, Darwin is the chef, Cordon Bleu certified and prepares delicious meals. The soups are outstanding. His wife Anna serves the customers with a ready smile. They speak little English but it has never been a problem. The meal prices are reasonable but would suggest not ordering wine as it has been expensive in every restaurant we have been in Ecuador. A wonderful place to eat and you will see local families here as well. The most amazing chicken sandwich I have had in all my travels. Table cloths and flowers on the table. Best meal we had in Cotacachi. It is one block off the main square, behind the cathedral.

No longer crammed into a mid-block closet space, roomy Veraneante now lights up the corner of Sucre and Garcia Moreno. I've been three or four times and report that the consomme, the caldo de pollo and especially the locro are outstanding. The locro, a potato-cheese-and-grain-based soup, is a full meal for those with moderate appetites, chock full of veggies and avocado. Yum.

I did have the strangest "Caesar salad" ever on one occasion. Based on head lettuce rather than romaine, it boasted hard-boiled eggs, hot sliced peppers, four large ;pieces of deep-fried chicken breast, short strings of cheese and a distinct absence of croutons, anchovies, and Caesar dressing. Let's hope there's a name change in the offing.

Main dishes are priced a little on the higher side of the usual $6 - $10 range for the standard Ecuadorian menu (every kind of meat you can name "a la plancha", etc.) but do not disappoint.

The menu could use filling out at the *postre* stage--there's nothing for dessert yet except fruit salad and drinks. No doubt that will change as the new location becomes established.

As for ambience, I like to save my TV watching for the dentist's chair. I realize the TV is there to keep the charming young Emily amused while her parents work, but it does take away from the enjoyment of a meal.
