“Good value, nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

Really good veggie options (tabbouleh, almuerzo). The thai chicken was authentic, but the chicken soup wasn't as good as the caldo de gallina/pollo available in the market. Lovely atmosphere and great service.

“Cozy, friendly and great for veggies!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

We had a great meal here (by the fire) with sangria and wine. There was a large variety of dishes as well as plenty vegetarian options, which was very welcomed! The staff were also lovely.

“This was our home during our time in Baños”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

The food is okay but good value but the atmosphere is brilliant. Really chilled out, we went in for tea and cake during the day, watched the free films if we wanted and would go for a quiet glass of wine in the evening. We were in baños 2 weeks so it was nice to have somewhere to go that was chilled out. The guy waiter (don´t know his name) is really friendly and takes time to talk to you.

“A great place to hang out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

Fantastic food, great staff and a really good vibe. We loved the free movies they play each afternoon. The staff darkens the room, brings you a candle for each table, then you enjoy the movie. Most of them are arthouse.
Great place to relax in Banos!

“Would move here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012

Why dont they have a hostal? We came here very day and enjoyed every minute. The prices are more than just fare, the food is great, the fireplace cosy, they have a huge book exchange and the service was nice.
