Reviewed April 25, 2014

Everything in this restaurant taste delicious, chef salad will fill you up right away... have some trout and BBQ chicken, they are to die for!
Over all this is the place to go if you;re on a budget but want to eat exceptionally good!
The waiters need to practice more english, and we need to practice more spanish!!!

Place is small, cozy and super clean!

“Good fresh coffee”
Reviewed April 12, 2014 via mobile

We had a good capocinno in café hood. We were a bit tired of all the Nescafe.
It's a cosy place by the square. The colourful environment is really enjoyable.

“Backpacker lunch is really good value”
Reviewed April 3, 2014

We went to Cafe Hood several times - the backpacker menu with 2 courses and a juice is really good value for $3.5

The Indian plate isn't quite authentic but is really yummy - especially if you are veggie or want to top up on your vegetables.

The burritos and sandwiches were also tasty and the papaya juice amazing!

Would definitely recommend a visit if you are in Baños

“Great service food not so good”
Reviewed March 26, 2014 via mobile

We chose this restaurant for the good reviews it received but we were really disappointed, too expensive and not so good. The only dish I really wanted to try was not available... No wonder it was the cheapest in the menu. Any way at least the service and the restroom was decent! I'll try something else in my next trip.
