It's an odd little restaurant right next to the indigenous market--you go around the back and up a flight of steps to find it, but the food was good and we appreciated the rest stop after hours spent in the market.

This is a wonderful little restaurant upstairs so you can look out over the market as you eat. Very good food and friendly smiling service. Has a menu with English descriptions of the food. Deserves lots of business.

This a hidden gem in Otavalo! It´s right on the plaza overlooking the main market. An easy landmark is the giant grocery store 50 meters to the right. You´ll have to enter under the name of the restaurant, then continue up stairs to your left. A kind hostess awaits and will be glad to seat you. If it´s available, ask for the table overlooking the market. It´s a great place to watch the madness below and maybe take a few pictures.
The hamburgers are fantastic! Best I´ve tasted in Ecuador. They add some dressing and vegetables to the meat. Comes with fries. I think it was around 4 bucks and well worth every penny!
