We were in Cotacachi last September. The food here was presented brilliantly, and the taste of it was stupendous. And, to think it only cost of $7.50 each. We are looking forward to going back again next month.

My first dinner at this restaurant was an unexpected surprise. Professional, delicious, great service and ambience. The fusion of local and international cuisine was impressive.

The chef is a real culinary artist. The shrimp appetizer was presented in a mushroom sauce. The cream of tomato soup was delicious with pieces of fresh chicken added. Trout was the main courst and the dessert was minimal but just right with ice cream and fruit displayed artistically. It is a set menu of the chef's choosing so go with an open mind and a great appetite. There is no alcohol so take your own bottle of wine to complement the meal.

I've been home from Ecuador for over a month, and I can't stop thinking/talking about the meal we had at Sumac. First off, the price: $9.99 for a four-course gourmet meal. You couldn't get four courses at Wendy's for that price. (And we brought our own wine! No corkage fee!) Each course was beautifully-presented and tasty, and the portions were just right. The restaurant is about a 7-minute walk from town or take a taxi for $1. We're returning to Cotacachi in August, and Sumac is at the top of our itinerary.

David is a culinary artiste - the food is always delicious, beautifully presented, and reasonably priced. This is the best place in town for an affordable but exquisite dining experience.
