This might have been a beautiful interlude in Otavalo's hectic market day, as the restaurant is cozy and attractive, with a menu sporting such oddities as Pineapple Flameado and Ceviche Otavalito, not to mention a long-awaited cappuccino. However, the espresso machine was not working, there was no toilet paper in the bathrooms, the water for tea was tepid, the somewhat tasty consomme was tepid, too, and the service was incredibly slow since the poor waitress had far too many tables to serve--all this to the accompaniment of the live but middling Ecuadorian-music band who played El Condor Pasa excruciatingly slowly about six times while we were there. Trying to save time and serve us better, our waitress tried to deliver a global verbal amount rather than take the time to write a bill. Interesting, but once was enough.
