“Great food and plenty of it.”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

The sandwiches were quite large and tasty. The juices were fresh. Lots of good vegetarian options, as well.

“Nice place in Banos”
Reviewed August 2, 2014

The food was very good for a decent price. The different dishes (we ordered several dishes for 12 people) came quite fast and all on the same time. We can recommand everything on the card, because everybody was happy with his choice (pad Thai, fish with smashed potatoes and a lot of vegetables, spaghetti,...).
It is also nice place in the afternoon to play a game or read a book when it is rainy outside. They serve lovely homemade brownie and good drinks.

“Craving vegetables”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

Our trip through Ecuador has been heavy on bread and eggs and I was going to kill someone if I didn't get a plate of veggies soon. Cafe Hood (not to be confused with Casa Hood or Cafe Good) delivered in the form of their Pad Thai. While it nowhere near resembled traditional Pad Thai, it was loaded with broccoli, squash, onions and cabbage and was delicious. My man had a huge plate of Huevos Rancheros and we both stepped away extremely full. Prices were good, portions huge and the vibe....just right.

“Good food decent price”
Reviewed July 13, 2014 via mobile

The food was good nobody in my family had any complaints. Service was also good the problem I had with this place is they say they open at 10 but twice we got there and they said we would have to come back because they where cleaning. For me that was a red flag your restaurant should be cleaned the night before. Or at least before your customers get there that is the reason for average and not very good. I will return but if I have to wait for them to clean. I won't be coming back
